Singaporeans can now dodge dinosaurs on a jogging and cycling trail stretching from Changi Airport to East Coast Park.

The “Changi Jurassic Mile” opened yesterday and is part of the 3.5-kilometer path between the airport’s Terminal 2 and the coastal park’s entrance. Twenty-two dinosaur figures, including a T-rex and brachiosaurus towering 5 meters can be found along the trail, which also comes with information boards about the prehistoric creatures as well as music and occasional growling noises in the background.

Look out for bicycle rental shops and cafes spread throughout the trail. 

We are not sure where this idea came from or if its purpose is to scare joggers into breaking their own records but if you’re up for it, visitors are required to book a one-hour slot from Oct. 16 to Jan. 3 on Fridays and weekends.
