Jurassic World Evolution: Unlock Guide

After spending considerable time hooked on Jurassic World Evolution, we thought it was high time a guide was pulled together to help you fine park managers see at a glance what you need to be working on to get the dinosaurs, buildings, upgrades and customization you’re looking for. It’s important to note of course that there is constant (and unstoppable!) work still going with the title, and so while things are certainly correct at the time of release, they might change in the future.

If you do see anything which has changed, please let us know and if we’re not already working on it, we’ll get things updated as soon as possible. It’s also important to note that the percentages given here are a rough eyeball guess, and may not be 100% accurate but should get you to the right ballpark.

This list is not 100% complete, but again we’ll be adding new dinos, upgrades, buildings and customization as they land in game, as soon as we can get our grubby little claws on them

Claire’s Sanctuary DLC

We’ve added the details for some oft he Claire’s Sanctuary DLC in the appropriate locations here. A couple of important things to note. Firstly, items within the DLC will only be available for your other parks after completing all 7 story missions, and secondly, you will still have to research these when you go back to old parks. ALL Paleobotany research (including Greenhouse building and upgrades) requires 3 x Research Center


The Dinos themselves are the true stars of Jurassic World Evolution, and the animation and sound design teams truly deserve to be still patting themselves on the back even all this time after launch. From the various dig sites around the world, you’ll be looking to pull together the cream of the crop (plus the Sruths!) for your guest’s Jurassic adventure. There are a lot available from the start of the game, but here’s how to unlock the rest

Your buildings will help in a few ways, with some providing better power or giving a bonus to your income, but mostly here you’ll be looking at guest satisfaction. Again you’ll have a few buildings available from the start of the game (otherwise you’d be pretty stuffed!) but to improve your guest’s access to food, drink, and cans of totally unsuspicious shaving foam, you can check out our short list here to find out how to unlock these shops, and help your customers give you more money

A vital part for any wilflife park, the enclosures not only keep your bigger dinos secure, but improve visibility and feeding too. Whether you’re looking for improved fencing, more efficient feeder replenishment, or you just want to give your guests a better view of the main attractions, you’ll find some options here.

Building Upgrades

If you build it, they will come! If you upgrade it, they’ll run over burning coals and broken glass to give you their money… which to be honest is probably good considering the history of these parks. With more dig teams, faster  and cheaper fossil extraction, and improvements to most facilities you’ll find efficiency is the name of the game here. These upgrades will help you keep costs down, and productivity high

Medical Treatment

As well as keeping them locked up, you’ll have to keep your charges healthy! It’s not always as easy as food, water, and room to roam. Whether it’s a nasty case of Bracken Poisoning, E. Coli,  or Tuberculosis, your dinos should never be allowed to suffer, and keeping your Ranger Teams’ stock ready and waiting to go is the only way to be safe. Make sure you research these as soon as they are available, so you don’t face the issue of having a sick dino with no cure!

And if you want to pretty them up (or for some reason want to make the most violent one disappear!) then look no further than the cosmetic genetic alterations. If you want to shake things up a little and give your dinos a red carpet treatment, this is the place to look. Best advice though, don’t substitute any of that sex changing frog DNA… PROVEN bad idea!
