"While having a pony ride, you'll be able to see the life-sized dinosaurs as if you're living in the dinosaur era with friendly monster lizards."

These sinosaurs have been reborn and have found their place in our modern world. In Baluarte, a vast developed land with rolling hills affording the view of the Cordilleras owned by Ilocos Sur Governor (as of this writing)Luis Chavit Singson, these Dinosaurs are very present.

They are here not to frighten the visitors but to attract them. They are life-sized man-made sculpture of dinosaurs that are truly eye-catchy. Baluarte, a zoo and a skeet range, has attracted a lot of visitors. Each visitor can experience seeing strange animals from elsewhere in the world.
