If you are planning to travel to Spain with your children and are keen to make it an unforgettable experience, we recommend you take them to a fascinating place of leisure, adventure and amusement: the Dinópolis theme park in the town of Teruel, devoted to the dinosaurs that ruled the Earth millions of years ago.
Dinópolis puede ser una escapada muy interesante si está pasando unos días de descanso en la costa valenciana, junto al mar Mediterráneo, o ha decidido visitar una ciudad importante como Zaragoza . En este gran parque temático podrá rodearse de dinosaurios de inmenso tamaño que mueven su cuerpo gigantesco, admirar esqueletos de animales ya extinguidos como el mamut y el oso de las cavernas, viajar por mares que desaparecieron mucho antes de la existencia del hombre, adentrarse por el túnel del tiempo, convertirse en saurio o investigar cómo vivían estos reptiles ya desaparecidos.
Dinópolis is a fun outing if you are spending a short holiday on the Valencian shores of the Mediterranean, or have decided to visit the interesting city of Zaragoza . At this large theme park you will be surrounded by huge dinosaurs that move their gigantic bodies, will be able to admire the skeletons of extinct animals such as the mammoth and the cave bear, sail on seas that disappeared long before human beings came into existence, travel through the tunnel of time, or become a saurian and discover how these extinct reptiles lived.
Children can learn all about palaeontology in an entertaining and interactive way through games, 3D projections, workshops, plays, animations and experiments. And they can do all this not just as spectators but as researchers and explorers of strange and uncharted lands, making amazing discoveries themselves.
Dinópolis comprises several interesting sections. The most outstanding is undoubtedly the Palaeontology Museum, is the largest exhibition space in Europe and boasts one of the world’s best dinosaur collections. In addition to skeletons (it’s the only place in the world where both a Tyrannosaurus and a Brachiosaurus are on display), original fossils and life-size reproductions, this superb interactive space also features virtual recreations, projections, simulators, laboratories and games, providing a total experience for visitors. Other great attractions are the living recreation of an imposing Tyrannosaurus Rex and a journey through time on a vehicle that penetrates a world of special effects and animations.
