Do you completely love the classic 1993 film Jurassic Park? Are you DYING to see the new Jurassic Park film that's being released this June? Well, my friends, there's only one way to get pumped up for the film release, and that's to go to a real-life Jurassic Park.
Say whaaaaaaa? Yes, you heard that right. I mean, the dinosaurs may not be living and breathing, but close enough. Also, if they were living and breathing, you'd be hearing it from more sources other than just us. Regardless, this park is absolutely amazing, and will totally transport you into the film. Get ready for an experience like no other.
It's called Jurassic Forest, and it's just a 30-minute drive from Edmonton. Stroll along the forest boardwalk and keep your eyes peeled for the massive dinosaurs hiding in the luscious greenery. The towering trees and ginormous dinos will make you feel incredibly small in comparison, and thus will totally immerse you in the experience.
See if you can name all the types of dinosaurs you see (it's harder than you think, I know I can only remember like 3 kinds from elementary school). After your adventure in the park, you can finish off the day with some dinosaur-themed mini golf and you're good to go!
It's the perfect place to bring your bf who's totally obsessed with the Jurassic Park film franchise, or your nephew or cousin who just loves dinosaurs. Either way, you won't find this kind of thing anywhere else, and everyone you know will be seriously curious when you post an Instagram in the park..
