N.B. timings listed below are subject to change. Please refer to the daily show schedule at the Park for the latest updates in show/programme timings.
1. Experience what it’s like to be on the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
From dinosaurs barging their way through buildings, to the movie’s iconic Gyrosphere (“the hamster ball” that Zach and Gray found themselves trapped in), to a stunning life-sized plate-backed Stegosaurus, hardcore fans of the movie will find themselves squealing in excitement as they pose for photos against these gargantuan structures that look like they popped right off the silver screen!
2. Be thrown into the thick of dinosaur action
Set against the backdrop of Hollywood Lagoon, Jurassic World: Roar! is an all-new live action show that brings you up close to the park’s amazing prehistoric predators as they escape containment and wreak havoc on the streets of Hollywood right before your very eyes.
Expect voracious Velociraptors, swooping Pteranodons and, of course, the mighty T-Rex.
At the end of the show, you’ll even get a chance to get up close and personal with the mighty T-Rex and Miles, Head of Security at Jurassic World.

Crispy Eruption (S$8): crispy popcorn chicken tossed with Korean Gochujang sauce, topped with white sesame seeds and served in a wafer cone.
