From a towering Tyrannosaurus Rex to gigantic dinosaur eggs, get ready to be wowed by the lifelike dinosaur exhibits. Read our experience to be adequately prepared for your adventure!
Changi Jurassic Mile – How To Get There
There are 2 directional options you can choose from to explore Changi Jurassic Mile – from Changi Airport or East Coast Park.
If you are driving, the most convenient way to start your visit is to park at Carpark 4A at Changi Airport Terminal 4. For folks who are on private hire vehicles or taxis, you can drop off at HUB & SPOKE and travel to Jurassic Mile on foot or by cycling (rent a bicycle from GoCycling at HUB & SPOKE). Otherwise, you can come in from East Coast Park via the Changi Coastal Park Connector like us! The landmark to search for would be MOE Changi Coast Outdoor Adventure Learning Centre / Sea Sports Centre.
Changi Jurassic Mile – Welcome To The Entrance
The protective Pterodactyl is the iconic guardian to Changi Jurassic Mile entrance. You will also be greeted with a huge tyrannosaur head that emerged from a cracked wall with a stern ‘Dinosaur Enclosure Caution’ sign. In case you were wondering, the entrance set up is the same, no matter which entry point you are visiting from.
Changi Jurassic Mile – The Adventure Begins
Referring to the map before we begin, you can see how the dinosaurs are divided into different clusters based on whether they are Herbivores, Predatory, Flying and even Defensive dinosaurs. At this point, we recommend that you put away your earphones and immerse yourself in the sound of the wild created to enhance your sensory experience.
We will be showing you the dinosaurs in sequence from East Coast Park to Changi Airport. The first dinosaur to greet you will be the majestic Brachiosaurus. With its great length, even the iPhone 11 with its wide-angle lenses could not adequately capture the beast in its totality.
If you wish to find out more about the dinosaur you just saw, informative boards are made available in its immediate vicinity for quick facts. This is particularly useful for parents who are bringing their children on an educational walk.
Changi Jurassic Mile – Continue To The Airport
The red track and clear signages to the airport are very easy to follow. We never could imagine cycling within the airport terminals hence we welcomed the opportunity to explore the space on wheels. However, the closed terminals as a result of the pandemic gave a solemn and slightly dispiriting note to the ride.
Changi Jurassic Mile – End Off With A Hearty Breakfast
We ended our ride with a filling breakfast at HUB & SPOKE Cafe. The ambience is very casual with lots of space for you to park your bicycles while enjoying your coffee. Folks should be pretty famished by the time they reach here from the walking and cycling. Nothing fanciful, if we are not visiting the Jurassic Mile Singapore, we probably would not make a deliberate trip down just for the cafe food.
Changi Jurassic Mile – Plan Your Visit
