If you venture into a forest in Irish Hills, you will come across a long-forgotten roadside attraction with the most unusual features. As if ripped from a Jurassic Park sequel, you’ll encounter gigantic sculptures of dinosaurs, now severely weathered by years of abandonment.

Yes, this is the Prehistoric Forest. First opened in the early 1960s, this strange place closed in 1999. Take a glimpse of what this place once was and the aging monsters that remain.
