In celebration of the park’s 20th birthday, I am posting some pictures from the parks first year.
The Tree of Life looks the same but there were some different animals in the gardens surrounding it.
In front of Countdown to Extinction, there was no iguanadon.
And where DinoRama sits today there was Dinosaur Jubilee, a small natural history museum manned by interns from the Dino Institute.
The Safari had many of the same animals but the landscape itself looked very different.
Here wildebeest and tommies graze in a much different looking place.
And Gorilla Falls had warthogs and these gerenuk.
Happy Anniversary to the world’s best theme park.
