Visible crew/equipment: When grown up Alan is running around shouting "I'm Home!" after just arriving back from the jungle, the camera pans past a grandfather clock, and you can clearly see the legs of a crewmember reflected in the glass panel of the clock, moving in time with the camera.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene with the big tarantulas, many times you can see the strings attached behind them, especially the one Peter swings the axe at. (01:24:35)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when the pods and vines start growing all over the lounge, there is one shot of a green vine crawling towards a carpet, and then slithering under. Watch closely, near the carpet, and you can see the wire attached to, and controlling the vine, because the light shines on it, exposing it rather well for a second. (00:48:40)

Visible crew/equipment: Near the start when the young Alan goes to open the door and there is a close up of the handle you can clearly see the reflection of the camera man. (00:12:05 - 00:15:10)

Visible crew/equipment: Just before the monsoon, everyone is in the attic and Judy tells Sarah that she needs to roll a 12 to win. When it cuts to Peter, you can see his tail behind him, and the wire attached to the tail is visible, holding it up and swinging it about. (01:15:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When the lion first emerges from the Jumanji, Alan tackles with it and it then jumps at him, and lands on a long carpet, and goes sliding along on the carpet, into a bedroom. The black wire used for pulling the carpet along is visible, yet best seen in slow motion. (00:28:30)

Factual error: When it's 1969 we see a boy (I'm not sure which one so you'll have to look) riding a Shwinn Sting-Ray Krate Grey. That bike didn't come out until 1971 and they only made them that one year. (00:02:45)

Trivia: Jonathan Hyde plays both Mr. Parrish and the villain Van Pelt - a nod to Peter Pan, in which the same actor usually plays both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook. Interestingly, Robin Williams had played Peter Pan in Hook a few years earlier.

More trivia for Jumanji

Question: When Alan has reached Jumanji, why were the bullet and rifle pulled into the game? They weren't from the game, but purchased by Van Pelt from a gun store.

Answer: The game is essentially "resetting reality" back to the point Alan was first sucked into the game. So it is undoing everything that has been done - including taking away the gun and bullets Van Pelt had purchased.

Answer: The gun and bullets may have been from the real world but they were Van Pelt's property. He purchased them at the gun store. Apparently the game pulls in Van Pelt and anything of his he was using to hunt Alan. It makes sense that the game would do this because Alan defeats Van Pelt by following the rules of the game. Having Van Pelt be able to simply purchase a gun in the real world and kill a player with it even after they've completed the game would be a huge cheat.
