Largest dinosaur park in Southeast Asia opens in Selangor

Located in Sungai Long, Kajang in Selangor, Dino Desert is Southeast Asia’s largest dinosaur park, boasting 11 acres and 144 replicas of prehistoric creatures, according to Citizens Journal.

Its desert landscape offers an exciting route for park-goers to travel through as they stop by each of the different natural habitats, offering something to learn about the prehistoric creatures.

Dino Desert isn’t just like any ordinary theme park, though. The life-sized replicas within the habitats are animatronic, moving and emitting growls to make visitors feel like they’ve been transported to Jurassic Park itself.

The range of animatronics available is nothing to scoff at, either. For instance, there’s the menacing Tyrannosaurus Rex, designed to instil fear into the hearts of visitors who stop by to gaze upon it.

As for the faint of heart among us, replicas of the more subdued Triceratops and Brachiosaurus are more of a safe bet.

Do note that those visiting the park are advised to bring a hat and wear sunscreen to avoid heat exhaustion.

At nighttime, the park-going experience gets further elevated to a whole new level with the attraction’s ‘Aurora Night’, featuring fluorescent purple and yellow lights filling up all corners of the park.
