The subject of my article is the very best option for those, who have been in love with dinosaurs all their lives and are being in Hungary - the country with thousand faces in the centre of the Carpathian-Basin. The home of this place, similarly to the country itself, is very versatile since the town of Rezi, on the one hand, is laying in the basin of Keszthely Mountains, while on the other hand Lake Balaton - the “Hungarian Sea” as locals call it, can be reached within only ten kilometres. Faithfully to the country’s traditions, countless wineries grow and process their excellent products in the neighbourhood, as the region counts as one of the best-known Hungarian areas for wine production. National parks, touring routes – both walking and biking – are at hand, as well as one of the oldest still-standing castle of the nation’s history. Yet, the main attraction here nowadays is called Dinosaur and Adventure Park of Rezi, of which landscape properly suggests the feeling, as if a scenery of a dinosaur movie was left there.
I have to admit that the Park provides services mainly to the kids, but even I am a fond of these mysteriously terrifying prehistorical reptiles. If you also belong to those, who for some reason always have been bond to dinosaurs, you definitely ought to see these realistic plastic giants. Besides their shockingly real external characteristics, some of them are even in the constant motion and producing scary sound-effects, as if they just wanted to attack each other. Don’t be afraid though. Obviously, the planners of the Park did not intend to frighten the children to death, so at the end of their visit, including you, everyone will leave only with a very pleasant adrenaline boost.

For the admission, you are not only ensured to admire the characters of Jurassic Park, but you are also able to try out the adventure park section of the place. Starting with a tremendous agility course, there are trampolines, little paddle-boats and grabber machines for children. They can also enjoy the newly-launched mini-train for kids and a hanging slide-course that is stretching for 150 metres long at the height of 15 metres. The admission fee is around 10 EUR for the adults and five for the children over three years of age – under that the entry is free. The whole territory of the Park, by the way, is situated on a 23,000-square-metre ground, so it’s assured, that all the youngsters end up exhausted and ready for a calm and peaceful evening afterwards. The upcoming week they will surely be boasting at school, saying something like - as if the scenery of a dinosaur movie was left in Rezi.
