How to Build a Lagoon in Jurassic World Evolution 2

Jurassic World Evolution 2 features marine dinosaurs which live in lagoons, an enclosure that specifically houses the marine reptiles you can unlock in the game. If you try and house a marine dinosaur anywhere other than a lagoon, they will die, so it is important that you know how to build a lagoon in order to keep them alive.

A lagoon is a marine enclosure that works similarly to a regular enclosure in that you still need to have a hatchery, feeders, and a viewing platform. They basically work on a tiling system, each lagoon piece is a circle that can be joined together to create a large expanse of water for your dinosaurs to live in. The larger the marine species, the bigger your lagoon needs to be. The shape of the lagoon does not matter, what is important is the terrain. If an area is too uneven, you will not be able to place lagoon pieces there and will have to use the terrain tools to create a smoother base for your enclosure. Don't worry about specific environmental features when creating your lagoon as they cannot be placed inside, instead focus on making sure the population size is optimal, the area is big enough, and there is plenty of food there.

In Jurassic World Evolution 2 there are two types of feeders, these are the marine fish feeder and the shark feeder and both need to be placed against the edge of the lagoon. You will be able to find out what the minimum number is for each type of feeder by checking the comfort information for the marine dinosaur you want to place in the lagoon. Although not necessary, you should build a hatchery for your lagoon as this will function as a ranger post which you can assign rangers to refill food and keep an eye on the dinosaur. If marine reptiles are not adequately fed or are unhappy with their environment they will not only become sad which will reduce their appeal to visitors but also make them more vulnerable to diseases from which they can die from. You will need to use lagoon specific viewing platforms for your visitors and always check to make sure your lagoon is not damaged, particularly after a storm.
