Hack into 'Jurassic Park' like you're Samuel L. Jackson

New, 56 comments

For a movie full of giant dinosaurs, it's strange that one of Jurassic Park's most memorable scenes involves portly programmer Dennis Nedry — played by Seinfeld regular Wayne Knight — wagging his finger and repeating the words "Ah-ah-ah! You didn't say the magic word!" Now you can try to wrest control of the dinosaur-packed park back from the nefarious Nedry, using the recreation of the movie's UNIX network found at

But Nedry's "hacker crap" is advanced, and he doesn't want to let you into the system. Try and unlock the park three times in a row and you'll be presented with a movie-accurate vision of his head tacked onto a cartoon Elvis Presley's body, waving his finger as he repeats his irritating refrain. Dig a little further into the fake UNIX system, and you'll be able to find other nods to the film, including a sample from Nedry's NSFW picture collection.
