Real-Life Jurassic Park Opens in Australia


Real Jurassic Park

If you've ever watched Jurassic Park - and I'm guessing you have - then I can be pretty sure that you've found yourself pondering how awesome it would be to actually step foot inside of a real dinosaur-filled theme park... am I right?  Well guess what?  Now you can.  And if that's not a Christmas miracle, then there is no such thing as a Christmas miracle.

Palmersaurus Dinosaur Park

As we spotted over on the website Sploid, the Palmersaurus Dinosaur Park just opened this month in Australia's Palmer Coolum Resort, and it's home to nearly 200 animatronic dinosaurs that move, fly, hatch and roar.  All species of dinos are on display inside the world's coolest theme park, ranging in length from 8 feet to a massive 72 feet, with the tallest of the beasts standing 33 feet high.  The park is the brain-child of billionaire mining tycoon Clive Palmer, and the idea behind the creation was quite clearly to make visitors feel like they stepped foot on the set of Jurassic Park.  It's literally like the movie come to life... minus the dated CG effects.
