Jurassic Park III: Danger Zone! is a video boardgame based on Jurassic Park III for the PC. It was released on June 29, 2001. It was developed concurrently with the previously released Jurassic Park III: Dino Defender.

The player is again cast as a Dino Defender. The Dino Defender Chief, a character who serves as both an authority figure and narrator, returns from the previous game to guide him through menus. Danger Zone also recycles several cutscenes and menu designs from its predecessor.

In the game the tokens are Ford Explorers from Jurassic Park, designed for up to 2 players. The players' mission is to collect DNA from a dinosaur of your choice such as T-Rex, Spinosaurus, Pteranodon, Brachiosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, or Stegosaurus. The game features many mini-games such as a raptor fight where you play a raptor and fight another raptor, or hunt in a field to obtain DNA of dinosaurs using a helicopter. The game ends when you have filled the "DNA meter" with the DNA of the dinosaur you chose.

The mini-games are very similar to another PC game developed for the Jurassic Park III franchise called Jurassic Park III: Dino Defender. Many mini-games are side-scrolling games that feature the same armored character used in Dino Defender.

Plot[edit | edit source]

A huge earthquake comes to Jurassic Park and destroys InGen's DNA supply. Now you have to go to Jurassic Park and get that DNA back. Choose single or multiplayer. Go around Jurassic Park on a board like version of it. You can buy play mini games, and if you get in trouble with a dino. Just use an item to get the dino away. Once you get enough DNA you create a dinosaur. The Dinosaur you choose at the beginning of the game is the dinosaur you clone, if you win.
