Themebuilders creates dinosaurs for Dino Splash at Plopsaland De Panne

Themebuilders Philippines Inc., a specialist in theme projects and design, has created 15 realistic dinosaurs for a new ride at Belgian theme park Plopsaland De Panne.

Themebuilders Philippines Inc. is pleased to announce that it has produced a range of 15 dinosaurs for the new Dino Splash ride at the family-favourite Belgian park. Dino Splash is a remodelling of an existing log flume, now transformed into an exciting prehistoric scene, complete with dinosaurs and volcanoes.

Themebuilders is responsible for the design, engineering, production and installation of 15 detailed, life-like dinosaurs, creating an immersive atmosphere for the ride. Visitors can now enjoy a Jurassic adventure as they journey through an ancient landscape.
