Spain is set to launch a Jurassic Park-style dinosaur theme park with life-size dinosaurs, tapas kiosks and a zip line, opening in Malaga in 2021.
The attraction, named Rincón de la Victoria Dinosaur and Zip Line Theme Park, will boast excavation activities, life-size dinosaurs, and a zip line (via The Sun).
The theme park will feature 35 dinosaur replicas. More than half of these will be to scale, and 16 of the dinos will be animatronic (via Euro Weekly News).
There will also be a hiking trail resembling the Jurassic period in southern Europe, as well as activities for children to play as archaeologists.
In addition, there will be restaurants, tapas kiosks, viewpoints, science exhibitions and a gift shop at the theme park, which has an area of 68,000 square metres.
The €3.6 million project is scheduled to open its first phase, which includes the dino land, in 2021. Construction of the zip line will start in 2024.

Francisco Salado, mayor of Rincón de la Victoria, told local media: “This theme park will be a tourist attraction with education elements based on the world of dinosaurs, where both large and small can actively enjoy their time.”
Meanwhile, Universal Orlando Resort finally unveiled its Jurassic World VelociCoaster, heading to Islands of Adventure in 2021 as the fastest and tallest launch coaster in Florida.
Jurassic World VelociCoaster will be the latest addition to the immersive land of Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure, which offers guests a chance to meet life-size dinosaurs while enjoying the Jurassic Park River Adventure and Raptor Encounter.
Last year, Universal Studios Hollywood officially opened Jurassic World – The Ride, a new thrill ride that uses state-of-the-art visual effects and technology.
