A wide variety of dinosaurs are on display, including a Tyrannosaurus, a representative carnivorous dinosaur, a Stegosaurus with impressive bone plates lining its back, and a giant Brachiosaurus with a long neck! Visitors can feel as if they have stepped back in time to the age of the dinosaurs.

The park’s walkway takes about 30 to 40 minutes, and the sun shining through the tall subtropical trees is a relaxing experience in itself.

It was realistic and amazing. I thought there were not many dinosaurs, but when I actually went there, there were many dinosaurs and they moved, so it was fun. At first I thought there were only figurines, but they were so detailed and realistic.
The rain created a nice atmosphere and it was truly Jurassic Park! Even with sandals, it was not a problem because the paths are well maintained and easy to walk on. The creek at the bottom of the park seems to rise, so it is a little dangerous on rainy days….
