11 new dinosaurs at the Changi Airport Connector
In 2021, a new batch of dinosaurs arrived – most of the new dinosaurs can be found outside of Jurassic Mile along the Changi Airport Connector. The yellow 3.9 metres tall Tyrannosaurus Rex is near the Terminal 4 slip road while the pink 3.5m-tall Diplodocus is outside the VIP complex. Also new to the ‘hood – some baby Pterodactyls at Changi Jurassic mile. You might recognise these dinosaurs as they have been repurposed from when they were previously used for the Changi Festive Village 2020.
20 original dinosaurs at Changi Jurassic Mile
The new dinosaurs joined the 20 dinosaurs that are part of the permanent free display – look out for the other Tyrannosaurus Rex and then spot the gigantic dinosaur eggs. Get your kids to find the huge Brontosaurus and the bright blue Velociraptors. Handy information panels show facts about these dinosaurs along that path while outdoor speakers play safari-themed music for the compete Jurassic Park style experience.
It’s a long walk for kids though!
If you are heading here with little kids, do be warned that it is a walk of 2 km from HUB & SPOKE car park to the start of Jurassic Mile (which is a one kilometre path)! So you may want to bring scooters or cycle instead.
Cycling along Changi Airport Connector
If your little ones can’t manage a one kilometre walk you can rent bicycles and make a cycling trip out of the experience. Kids bikes are available to rent from $6/hr and adult bikes from $8/hr from GoCycling’s newest outlet at HUB & SPOKE near Terminal 2 at the beginning of the Changi Airport Connector. You can return the bikes at any of the seven other GoCycling outlets around Singapore. You’ll find some at Changi Beach Park and East Coast Park too. You can even cycle all the way up to Coney Island and Jurong Lake Gardens.
