Budding paleontologists will be able to discover more about dinosaurs at a real-life Jurassic Park adventure world in Chongqing, China called Pu’an Dinosaur Geopark.

Plans for a real-life off screen Jurassic Park are under way in China after megacity Chongqing approved a request for a dinosaur land.

Budding explorers will be able to discover more about their favourite reptile giants and even dig through a fossil site in the excavation area.

The attraction will also feature a dinosaur fossil museum and research base which will study the movement of dinosaurs from the late Jurassic era to the early middle Jurassic era.

For Jurassic Park fans truly living on the wild side of life, the park will also feature rollercoasters and large scale rides.

It is not yet clear when the building for the park will be complete but developers have dubbed it Pu’an Dinosaur Geopark.

Construction is expected to begin early spring and the adventure park is set for completion by the end of 2020 - ready for a 2021 opening.

The Jurassic Dinosaur Park will become the second large geo-park for Chongqing with Longgang National Geopark a much-loved tourist attraction in the city.

According to the Chongqing Municipal Planning and Natural Resources Bureau the application for the exotic park was approved early on Monday.

News of the attraction will delight Jurassic Park fans who have developed a cult following for the dinosaur franchise.

It began in 1990 when Universal Pictures acquired the rights to the novel by Michael Crichton and developed it under the guidance of Steven Spielberg in 1993.

The original film is centred on a disastrous attempt to create a theme park of cloned dinosaurs which would be open to the public.

Steven Spielberg also directed the second Jurassic Park film The Lost World in 1997 and there have since been five films in total with a sixth scheduled for 2021.
