Singapore See: Dinosaur-themed Changi Jurassic Mile

Changi Jurassic Mile is a new attraction in Singapore that was launched on 11 October 2020. It features around 20 dinosaur exhibits along Changi Airport (Park) Connector, right next to the carpark of Changi Airport Terminal 4, and is opened to the public. These permanent exhibits are stretched across 1Km along the track and are supposedly "life-size".


Admission to Changi Jurassic Mile is free.



Getting There (without Driving)


Since Changi Jurassic Mile (let's called it "dino-walk" for short) is located near the carpark of Changi Airport Terminal 4, getting to T4 is the shortest route to the attraction.


For those who are not driving to the carpark at T4, getting to the dino-walk will be via T2 instead. So, first of all, get to Changi Airport Terminal 2 via MRT from Tanah Merah Station or Expo Station or by buses (see Getting to Changi Airport). After alighting at Changi Airport MRT Station, head for the exit to T2 Arrival Hall and take the free shuttle bus service to T4.

Alternatively, walk out of T2 and follow the signposts to Hub & Spoke Cafe. Bicycles can be rented at the cafe. If the intention is just to visit Changi Jurassic Mile, it is not worth to rent a bike at all. Personal advice will be to walk there as it will be troublesome to handle a bicycle and taking photos at the same time, not to mention that most pedestrians will be on foot and riding bicycles on the same path is hazardous to them, especially to young children.

50 metres after passing Hub & Spoke cafe, there will be this little tyrannosaurus rex (or T-rex) holding a signpost. Those who drives will miss this dinosaur for sure. Follow the red-coloured track from here to Jurassic Mile.



Visitors should refrain from riding bicycles into the attraction if the intention is to see the dinosaur exhibits. There are also Cisco officers on the 1Km track to ensure riders dismount from bicycles and push.



The 1Km Changi Jurassic Mile


A pterodactyl (a flying dinosaur) sitting on a rock at the northern entrance to Changi Jurassic Mile will welcome you. It marks the start of the 1Km walk.



This 3D head of a roaring T-rex at the entrance will change its shape when viewed from different angles.



A map showing the whereabouts of all the dinosaurs.



First of all, a triceratops (one of the defensive dinosaurs) with three horns and thick hide.



Two ankylosaurus in heavy armoured plates and club-like tails.



Next, three blue velociraptors surrounding a club car. The 1Km Jurassic Mile is right next to a golf course.


This baby T-rex that just broke out of an egg is the only exhibit that is not behind a fence. And it became rather "well-known" recently. First, a video that went viral online showed a lady "riding" on it and was condemned by netizens. Then, the baby dino was found to be vandalised and missing 5 teeth.


The exhibit was already repaired when we were there. As sensible and responsible people, please refrain from touching any exhibits — it's a golden rule around the world.



Next to the baby T-rex is this ferocious adult T-rex that seemed to be tearing at the fence. Well, the torn fence is part of the design, not a result of vandalism but do refrain from climbing it — it may really give way.



Next, a brachiosaurus (a herbivorous dinosaur) drinking water from the pond.


Five baby pterodactyl perched on a fence, each with a golf ball between the beaks.


A large stegosaurus with a flag in its mouth. It is an armoured, herbivorous dinosaur.



Followed by two parasaurolophus with identifiable long crests on the back of their heads.



The largest exhibits along the Jurassic Mile are these 2 apatosaurus with long necks that allow them to reached tall vegetation. Check out its size!



This apatosaurus also has a very long tail too.



Another pterodactyl sits at the southern entrance of the dino-walk. This is the last of the dinosaur exhibits. You can either make a U-turn back to Changi Airport or continue on the track to East Coast Park.


In total, there are 9 types of dinosaur and up to 22 counts of the exhibits, including the one outside Hub & Spoke.


Perhaps, a more imaginative way to walk through the exhibits:
