There’s no better way for the whole family to enjoy the Show than experiencing these great activities.

Dinosaur Adventures

Showgoers will be transported back to the Jurassic age with the all-new Dinosaur Adventures interactive walk-through exhibition. Featuring life-sized animated dinosaurs with reptilian skin that roar, breathe and stomp like real-life dinosaurs, visitors will experience the incredible world of dinosaurs as they walk through a fully-themed forest.

Children will also have the chance to embark on their very own fossil-finding adventure. Dressed in special jackets and glasses, they will be shown how to use tools to uncover their very own fossil in a sand dig pit, and trained staff will explain the world of paleontology and answer their questions.

People of all ages will be amazed at this attraction that brings 165 million years of history to life in an interactive and educational display.
