Traveling with kids? Embark on a one-of-a-kind dino adventure just before you hop on the Air Cruise! Millions of years ago, Songdo was home to dinosaurs, and actual footprints and fossils were discovered here! To recreate the Cretaceous period, animatronic dinosaurs were given a home at the Sky Park.
