How To Unlock the Viewing Platform

To unlock the viewing platform you will need to research it. To do this, you will need to open the "attractions" section on the side menu on the left-hand side of your screen. Find the viewing platform and click on it. This will take you directly to the research node that you need to be on.

When you get to the research node the appropriate research for a viewing platform should already be highlighted. You will then need to assign scientists to the task. Make sure that you assign scientists that fill or overfill the task requirements. You can find the requirements in the column underneath the image of the attraction which will be on the righthand side of your screen.

After you have filled or overfilled the requirements, hit the "start task" button and the research will start. All you need to do is wait for the research to end and you will have your viewing platform attraction.

If you're enjoying the game so far, you should take a look at the rest of our guides for it in our walkthrough hub.

What Is the Viewing Platform?

The viewing platform is another way for your guests to see your dinosaurs. The viewing platform is high-up which means that your guests will be able to see dinosaurs deep inside enclosures that would be impossible to find from a viewing gallery. A viewing platform is worth the money, especially if you have a larger enclosure or dinosaurs that stay hidden in their environment. They also give spectacular views of Brachiosaurus and other big dinosaurs.

Making sure that your guests can see your dinosaurs is extremely important in Jurassic World Evolution 2. There are many things for you to consider to keep your guests happy and we have a few guides that will help. We have one on how to increase amenity coverage and another on how to increase asset rating.
