A roaring dinosaur stands proudly atop a mountain promontory at the park’s heart. The Jurassic-sized statue evokes a sense of awe and wonder as it overlooks the lush park grounds. It was even more impressive when I realized it was 85 feet long, stretching from tail to head. It’s a perfect symbol of exciting adventures within its boundaries.
