These models represent all the dinosaurs that have ever lived in our universe.
An educational tour ends in a small theater, where a documentary about the beginning of the universe and the lives of dinosaurs is played.
The site is very well provisioned with public baths, a bar, and a courtyard with life-sized models to take pictures.
The park also offers a campsite equipped with all the facilities, an artificial lake and a playground. This ride can be an excellent educational experience for both children and adults. Colonia Pujato dino-themed amusement park’s aim is to raise awareness about caring for the environment and nature.
