My two boys Samuel and Dante love learning about dinosaurs. When their grandpa told them that we were going to Dinosaurs Island, they got super excited!
I took photos and videos of our little adventure. I am also sharing some tips and tricks if you are planning to visit Dinosaurs Island in Clark, Pampanga. We stayed at Green Leisure Farms the night before. Read about our overnight staycation here.
I was NOT paid to write this review. All opinions are my own.
An Animatronics Dinosaur Park in the Philippines
Dinosaurs Island has life-sized animatronic dinosaurs where children can get up close to see their favorite prehistoric animals. It has a Jurassic Park feel to it, and when we went there in February 2019, the weather was slightly hot and humid. The kids did not seem to mind the heat, because they were so happy to see the dinosaurs. Be sure to bring some drinking water on your trip! I also recommend putting on sunscreen and insect repellent for everybody’s safety and comfort.NOW, click here if you need transportation from Manila to Angeles !
At Dinosaurs Island, you can experience different types of adventures. We decided to go on the Dino Trail and the 7D Superscreen. The tickets for the Dino Trail cost Php 350 for adults and Php 300 for children 16 years old and below. The entrance fee for the 7D Superscreen was Php 100 per person.
The Dino Trail was basically self-guided. There were signs with dinosaurs facts and descriptions. Parents can read some of the facts out loud for little children. It would be nice to have some “park rangers” or tour guides to make the experience more kid-friendly and exciting.
One of the highlights of the tour was the part where you get to feed the Tyrannosaurus Rex! Check out our video:
Another fun highlight was watching the Dinosaur Dance. It was super funny because the dinosaur was dancing to this upbeat pop song as it tried to “bite” us. Okay, it was actually a bit scary but my sister and I were laughing so hard throughout the show.
At the end of the Dino Trail, you will be greeted by a park photographer. You may choose to purchase the official photo. Here’s our cute family picture with the Brachiosaurus!
After the tour, we watched the 7D Superscreen where we got to put on 3D glasses. Sam enjoyed the show but I got dizzy. I think I am a bit too old for bumpy rides!
Where To Eat
There are food kiosks right beside the entrance and ticket booths. They sell snacks and drinks. We actually ate snacks prior to entering the park just to make sure that the kids were not hungry. We ate inside the car because at that time, the area for eating was full of students from a field trip.
Where To Park
There is a large parking area very close to the entrance. The ground is not cemented do expect a bit of dust. Perhaps in the future, they can make a cemented parking area for added convenience.
There are fairly clean public toilets as well as a clinic close to the ticket booths. There are a few stores that sell souvenir items such as shirts, bags, and toys. Nonno bought my boys a set of dinosaur toys to bring back to Italy.
We had a fun and memorable experience for the entire family. I recommend this park to families with children who love learning about dinosaurs.
The park is located at Clark Picnic Grounds, Gil Puyat Ave., Mabalacat, 2023, Pampanga, Philippines. It is open daily from 8 AM- 6 PM. For more information on park amenities and prices, please visit www.clarklandph.com.
