Dinosaur Park is an exciting collection of creatures from prehistoric crawlers, to predators, to marine animals, and even flying reptiles. More than one hundred dinosaur sculptures fill the park. These realistic full-sized sculptures are based on actual fossil skeletons, and are brought to life by robotics, artistic details and a state-of-the-art sound system.
