Of course my kids haven't seen the new movie (7 year old wants to, but afraid he'd sleep in our bed for a month, and we didn't let his brother watch them till he was 9), but even before it comes out this set features instantly recognizable elements like the Gyrosphere ride mechanism from the first Chris Pratt film, as well as a pretty cool dinosaur. This is also a fairly easy build for such a large set, and my 7-year-old could easily handle it on his own. The detachable cage/truck is a cool element that really works and I like that all the Jurassic World sets offer a lot of imaginative post-build play possibilities even if you haven't seen the films. Because what kid doesn't know exactly how to imagine a world where dinosaurs and humans co-exist, or at least try to?

Recommendation: meh 4.55 / 5 from 11 reviews

this set, while being great, unfortunately has a lot of problems. the major one is the height difference between the truck and the trailer. the truck looks like it could drive over an elephant, but the trailer looks like it would get stuck on a speed bump. the trailer should have been made higher with folding ramps. and the truck is just ridiculously high. as soon as I built it, down it went to a more reasonable height. the hole in the roof is also kind of weird. it just looks too cluttered. I missed the first Jurassic world sets, so this was my first gyrosphere. I was afraid I wouldn't work well, but when it has a minifigure in it, it rolls quite well. the abandoned gyrosphere station is great. the minifigures are good, and I was especially happy to get franklin. overall this is a super set, but there were many issues in my opinion. thumbs up if you want the lord of the rings sets to be released again.

The dinosaurs are great and the gyrosphere is an excellent added attraction to the LEGO world.

Recommendation: no 76 / 100 by Tom

Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape has a lot going for it. You get some really nice Minifigures and accessories, as well as a fun set with lots of play value. Most importantly, you get a big, new dinosaur. This set really suffers from a high price tag though. You can offset the price a little in June 2018 by taking advantage of the LEGO® Store's double VIP points offer specifically for this set. That will also allow you to get the concurrent promotion of the free Creative Storybook set. Alternatively, you can wait for the Jurassic World sets to go on sale. I like this set a lot, but I would recommend waiting for a sale, or taking advantage of another promotion before buying it.

Recommendation: meh 3.4 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

All things considered, I think this set is a little disappointing on the whole. The overgrown gyrosphere launcher is quite nice but I don't like how the truck looks with the truck body placed awkwardly high compared to the wheels. The figure selection is not bad but one more minifigure would've been a lot better.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Rob

Surprisingly, for a set that has great promise and an exciting premise, 75929 Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape ends up being a mixed bag. Excellent vehicles are paired with a dinosaur design that could either impress or puzzle you, some middling minifigures, and a location build that doesn't quite deliver. An imbalanced set doesn't mean it isn't fun though, but, there are better Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom LEGO releases around this price point.

Recommendation: no 5 / 10 by Nachos Grande

In the end, the set ended up being almost exactly what I thought it would be when I first laid eyes on it. An undoubtedly cool set with an awesome dino (better than I expected even) but also a set burdened by a high piece count and some questionable play features (i.e. piece wasters).

As commercially successful as the new Jurassic World movie was globally, it certainly wasn't a critical favorite, and my expectations for the next movie are fairly low. So for me at least (and I suspect a sizable minority of our readership) these sets are about parts, minifigs, and creatures. At $80 for 577 pieces, the price is obviously weighted heavily toward the complex dinosaur centerpiece. But with a fun truck, cool transparent pieces that are useful in many contexts, lots of foliage, and an excellent new dinosaur, it's hard not to love this fun addition to the long-running LEGO Jurassic Park line (now including Jurassic World as well).

I had high expectations for 75929 Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape and they have, on the whole, been met. More detailed trees may have improved the appearance of the set and I do not like the enormous ground clearance beneath the truck, although these design choices have been made to facilitate play which is of the utmost importance in a set like this.
