Jurassic Take-Over Day

Jurassic Main 2 1

The Dinosaurs Are Coming!

For ONE day only come and experience a unique dinosaur adventure as we host the UK’s only interactive walkthrough and theatre experience!

Come and visit state-of-the-art animatronic life-like dinosaurs in this brand new, immersive and interactive experience for all audiences. This is an unmissable opportunity to talk to a Triceratops, look up to a Brontosaurus, roar with a T-Rex, scream with a Spinosaurus and run from a Raptor! 

Our theatre performance is 60-minutes long and is the UK’s only theatre and walkthrough experience, making it the most interactive dinosaur adventure in the UK! Will you stay seated and watch from afar or will you be ducking and diving alongside our dinosaurs? You’ll have the choice for either, but we do encourage attendees to get as involved as possible as audience participation is a must, and this unique experience has been created especially to accommodate for EVERY type of individual: from the bum-wigglers who can’t sit still, to the patient ones who like to watch every moment – we cover a Jurassic experience for everyone!

You'll have the opportunity to train as a Ranger (just in case the dinosaurs break loose!), learn about the baby dinosaurs in the Hatchery, take photo opportunities in our Gyrosphere, take selfies with our dinosaur props, watch our specially produced dinosaur show, wander through our unique Jurassic Park tribute area, learn about dinosaur skeletons in our paleontology area, chill in our story time area for any little ones who need some quiet time and so much more with this unique and brand new Jurassic experience.

And if that isn’t enough we’ll also be introducing our BRAND NEW DINOSAUR and the only one of its kind in the UK! (For those who don’t like getting wet we advise bringing waterproof clothing!).

There are three 90-minute sessions available to book across the day. Experience times include: 11:00am, 1:30pm and 4pm and it’s recommended you arrive 20 minutes prior to your experience start time. Tickets are limited to ensure the very best customer experience, which gives everyone attending the opportunity to meet and great both our large and small dinosaurs making everyone a VIP for the day!

The Jurassic Take-Over Day makes for an excellent Christmas gift, giving attendees something roarsome to look forward to in February this year!

The Jurassic Take-Over Day is a Jurassic adventure for all ages and suitable for both children and adults alike. There may be some elements of the show that can become scary but there are options to sit away from the interactive element, and we also have a Story Time area specifically for children who become too overwhelmed or need some quiet time whilst still wanting a dinosaur experience.
