The life-size biped models of tyrannosaurs and four-footed stegosauruses, diplodocuses - the largest ever-existing on the Earth animals, and other huge reptiles were arranged throughout the breath-taking “jungles”. Next to the terrestrial giant animals, a large-toothed flying reptile – pterodactyl, sitting on a rock, has spread its flickering, as if alive, wings. Creatures that had lived on the Earth hundreds of millions years ago utter a threatening roar by means of the built-in electronics, frightening, and, at the same time, amusing the children and adults.
A broad alley leads to the «Jadyly kenar» amusement park’s cultural-entertaining center, along which there are ice-cream, sweets and beverages selling pavilions, built in the form of sailing vessels with tacking. The alley is lined with the delicate shadow arbors and summer cafe-bars under light exotic tents.

An attractiveness of the white-marble building of the cultural-entertainment center is emphasized by the panoramic windows overlooking the entertainment facilities and the sea.
