Look: Raptors fans line up for Jurassic Park two days ahead of Game 5

Toronto Raptors fans

The Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors will have two days to prepare for a potentially decisive Game 5, but for certain Raptors fans, there’s no time to waste.

Multiple fans had begun lining up at the entrance to Jurassic Park, the open-air viewing area outside of Scotiabank Arena for fans without tickets to watch the game on big screens. The fans began to camp out over 48 hours ahead of tipoff in order to be the first ones in Monday night to watch the Raptors potentially win the NBA title.

The fans all had different stories for why they were there, but they did come prepared.

In addition to the tent, the first two fans in line were armed with a cooler, and a stove — and plenty of food.

“We got three pounds of bacon, a dozen eggs, hot dogs if we really get hungry – those are a last resort, some steaks we picked up from Walmart, a kettle to make coffee and water bottles. We are good to go,” one of the fans, who identified himself as Tyler, told Chris Fox of CP24.

The images from Jurassic Park during games have become one of the most memorable parts of Toronto’s playoff run. It seemed pretty wild how long people waited to get in for Game 1, but this is on an entirely different level.
