Get your cameras ready to snap away as you walk alongside large dinosaurs at the Jurassic Mile, located along a section of the Changi Airport Connector near Terminal 4. From the towering Brontosaurus to the fearsome-looking T-Rex, be wowed as you venture back in time. With the longest dinosaur about 17-metre wide and the tallest one up to 5 metres high, you definitely won’t miss them!
