Motorhoming in Spain | Walking with Dinosaurs in Teruel in Northern Spain
Imagine an attraction dedicated solely to the giants of years past in Teruel? Dinopolis is sited in a place that has seen thousands of dinosaurs found within the very earth beneath you. It’s the perfect playground for children with an imagination…
Every family attraction should have Something special
For those who enjoy shows at theme parks, then you’ll happily marvel at the robotic creatures on show including a life-size T-Rex that can move around as part of a story about a palaeontologist discovering the eggs of a T-Rex….. or if you’d prefer, you could head into the areas of Dinopolis (El Utlimo Minuto) that offer fantastic interactive displays that really capture what life must have been like 64 million years ago.
For those who love rides, then look no further than ‘El Viaje en el Tiempo’. Strap yourself into a caged vehicle that takes you deep into ‘Dinosaur Country’ to discover more on the history of the world. It’s not a ‘thrill seeking’ ride…. but then again, nor is the whole park. For those who love that type of thing, you’d be best heading for the 4D cinema ‘ Terra Colossus’where you’ll be thrown left, right and centre as you drive furiously to escape hungry dinosaurs!
If you leave one thing to last, then make sure it’s the Tierra Magna. This park is designed to recreate ‘realistic’ dinosaurs in a variety of poses. Some are skeletons whilst others are created as they would have been years ago. For us, it proved a useful way to gauge the size of the dinosaurs and gives a nice end to the day…
As we left Dinopolis, the conversations started to flow from the girls.
“How many different ways did they make you see, hear, and feel that you have been catapulted back to a long forgotten era……..”
For us, that’s exactly why you take children to places like Dinopolis……to have fun ‘learning by doing’… Not to mention being transported back 150 million years for a Jurassic adventure of a lifetime, when Dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
