The first floor of the museum is taken up by the skeleton of a dinosaur. You can also see many kinds of fossils of dinosaurs in the museum. In addition, there are a lot of amusing high-fidelity game facilities. All the games are related to dinosaurs, such as "Pterodactyl's movement" and "Hot dance of the dinosaur car". Another attractive place in the park is the hot spring pool. Every year there is a big festival in the park called International Lantern Festival. During this festival, there are many fireworks and beautiful lanterns in the park. If there is any festival approaching, Changzhou China Dinosaur Park will also present a big parade in which many people dressed in cartoon costumes dance and sing together. The parade sometimes shows classic scenes from cartoon films or computer games, such as 'Baby Dinosaur'.
