Bangladesh - Dino Park, Our Own Little Jurassic World
Fans of the Jurassic Park film series and enthusiasts who want to discover the mystery of pre-historic life; Mazfiqua Holdings Limited has brought you the first and only dinosaur theme park in Bangladesh - Dino Park.
Located at Koatbari, Cumilla, this edutainment project delivers visitors the thrills, wonder and information, all in one package that the prehistoric era is said to offer.
The reason for calling it our little Jurassic Park is the fact that it has 5 living dinosaurs! They scream and move, standing in one place though, as soon as someone goes near them, thanks to state-of-the-art censor technology. And not to mention, the imported dinosaurs are intricately crafted making them look too real.
Since it is called an edutainment project, the dinosaurs are not only there to give good scares, quick facts on every single one is hung by the side of each dinosaur so that kids can get to know a bit about what is amazing them keeping them on their toes.
To add to all the fun and adventure, the park has exciting family rides, from roller coasters to bumper cars, they have it all. For little kids, there is a kid's zone so that none misses out on the fun.
What makes everything even better is that the park is on the top of a hill! It is huge spanning across 12 acre of land.
The Dino Zone is the first thing you see after entering the park. Behind the dinosaurs is a gigantic waterfall fountain that gives the proper jungle vibe.
From there, visitors can take the colourful Rainbow Attic Stair to get to the top. Upon reaching, besides the Extreme Family Rides and kids zone, they will find a beautiful hilltop café named The Hill Café. They have set menus (BDT190 and BDT250) and fast food available for everyone to munch in along with a mesmerising view to enjoy from the hill.
Moreover, there are little refresh corners lying around in places across the hill as well as sitting areas in what feels like small hanging tents. These make roaming around the hill more relaxing for the visitors.
Dino Park also has a picnic zone and a hilltop banquet hall making the place great for picnics and corporate meetings.
The entry fee for Dino Park is BDT200. Each ride in Extreme Family Ride costs BDT100. They offer a package for BDT500 which includes a visit to the Dino Park and 5 rides.
Dino Park was established in December 2017. Since then it has received much appraisal for bringing a new concept to the table for recreational parks. They have further plans to expand the park, bringing in accommodation facilities.
Monzorul Islam Bhuiyan, Director Finance, Mazfiqua Holdings Ltd., said, "We wanted to bring the first edutainment project in Bangladesh. Dino Park is based on a unique concept of themed and recreational park. We developed it as an attraction for all ages with science and educational benefit."
This park can be a great choice for a fun day tour. They also offer a package for a one day trip from Dhaka to Cumilla. The package includes visiting heritage sites of Cumilla (Shal-ban Bihar, New Budha Bihar, Maina-mati Museum and Cumilla BARD) and Dino Park (entry and five rides).
