Dinosaur Discovery: Lost Creatures of the Cretaceous is RAWR-SOME!!! But hurry you only have until 28th January to visit before the dinosaurs become extinct!
From the moment you walk through the cave entrance you are immersed in a world ruled by dinosaurs. Featuring 23 moving, life-size animatronic models of the Cretaceous period – approximately 145-66 million years ago – this is a great exhibition for the whole family, one you won’t want to miss.
The science behind these dinosaurs is incredible, not only do they move, breathe and roar they also interact with each other.
T-Rex is always a favourite with kids, at Dinosaur Discovery you will find two monstrous Tyrannosaurus Rexes as well as a Spinosaurus, Styracosaurus, Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, Amargasaurus, and Megaraptor… just to name a few.
At each display you will find information and interesting facts regarding the dinosaur, as well as a touchscreen, if you press the speaker button it will pronounce the name of the dinosaur – great for some of those tricky dinosaur names.
There are a number of interactive games, a favourite for my kids was the digital dinosaur track – follow the footprints to the end to discover what dinosaur you are.
Dig for fossils in the large sandpit.
Get crafty and design your own dinosaur, then watch him come to life.
Or design, print and build your own dinosaur to take home.
Walk amongst dinosaurs on the big screen.
Discover how dinosaurs became extinct using the fun and interactive Dino Strike.
Try your hand at the Wheel of Meal gameshow to test your own survival
The kids will also love the different crawling tunnels. Playing with the large soft blocks and wearing dinosaur tails.
During the school holiday free story time sessions are running at 11am on Wednesdays and Fridays until 24th January.
If you are wanting to take home a souvenir, there is a gift shop at the exit of the exhibition with lots of great dinosaur toys, books, and puzzles.
