There are two types of currency in Jurassic Park Builder. These are Coins () and Bucks (). Coins are the general currency in the game, used for most purchases, but Bucks allow a person to put real money into the game, and purchase special dinosaurs, items, decorations, coins, and food.
Buying Coins with Bucks earns one varying amounts based on the player's level in the game. The higher the level, the more Coins one gets with a purchase.
There are six types of food in Jurassic Park Builder, two for each park. The Jurassic Park uses Meat () and Crops (). The Aquatic Park uses Fish () and Crustaceans (). The Glacier Park uses Meat () and Crops (), which are different from the types used in the Jurassic Park.
The cheapest way to obtain food is to use the Harbors in each park. These allow a player to spend Coins to earn food over time. These Harbors can be upgraded to bring in more food over longer periods of time.
