Hop into the figurative gyrosphere and take a tour of all the fantastic travel news we covered this week.

From dinosaurs new and old to a raucous airplane musical, it has been a weird and wonderful few days.

It’s also the week we found out that the rest of the planet finds Americans to be very sexy.

Don’t worry. All will be explained in short order.

Much like the rest of the living, breathing world we were giddy on the lead up to “Jurassic World” coming to theaters this week.

In so doing we took a closer look at the film’s marketing campaign which brilliantly resembles that of an actual theme park.

We also hopped aboard the time machine and rediscovered a similarly jubilant opening back in the mid-1990s.

Here is an archived video that shows celebrities lining up to pay homage to Jurassic Park: The Ride.
