With “Jurassic World” opening in theaters this Friday, the question that has remained unanswered since the first movie stomped into our lives in 1993 is: How much would a theme park of this nature cost in the real world?

Thanks to Fandango’s MovieClips team, we have a thorough calculation.

According to an elaborately-researched video, a re-creation of the Jurassic World theme park would boast a price tag of exactly $23,432,400,000, and would require $11,907,000,000 in annual fees to maintain.

Note that the aforementioned total doesn’t include the cost of cleaning up dinosaur droppings (which would presumably tack on a couple of more zeros).

The video was released as a promotion for “Jurassic World,” which has already surpassed all of last summer’s blockbusters in weekend ticket sales, including star Chris Pratt‘s previous hit “Guardians of the Galaxy,” plus “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

“Jurassic World” currently represents more than 90 percent of the weekend’s advance ticket sales on Fandango.

“‘Jurassic’ fans have waited 14 years for their beloved action franchise to return to theaters,” Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger said in a statement. “Built-in audience excitement, plus the addition of arguably the hottest star working today, is resulting in through-the-roof advance ticket sales for ‘Jurassic World.'”
