Dino Kingdom reveals the cutting edge technology bringing dinosaurs to life

The innovative state-of-the-art 3D and AR technology will bring ancient history back to life this summer

Coming to Manchester this summer with an epic outdoor, prehistoric exploration, Dino Kingdom has now revealed the incredible state-of-the-art technology behind the experience.

Dino Kingdom will utilise cutting edge digital advancements to recreate a Jurassic adventure that will have the whole family completely immersed. 

Prepare to be blown away as the future meets the past, with 100 life-like moving and roaring dinosaurs and creatures to uncover – tickets are available now.

Discover hidden dinosaurs on your phone screen

An educational experience as much as an adventure, visitors will encounter a six-metre-long dinosaur, with internal, illuminated 3D mapping to show the anatomy of the Jurassic creature. 

From the heartbeat to its muscle, skin to feathers, you’ll be able to learn about the biology of the greatest beings to roam the earth. 

Families can also download the Dino Kingdom app to navigate the trail like a pro and discover hidden dinosaurs on your phone screen through a next-level projection mapping experience. 

Learn as you explore, as on each discovery prompts will appear to give a unique insight into how dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, making sure you’ll leave with a greater knowledge of dinosaurs than ever before. 

Create your own dinosaur and bring it to life

Let the kids’ artistry run wild with an AR activity where they get to draw their very own dinosaur; then simply scan it and it will be brought to life immediately. Then you can watch their own pre-historic creation become a real-life character and interact with other dinosaurs in their virtual Dino Kingdom. 

A Dino Keeper experience has also been created using AR technology, so you can step into their world to interact and feed dinosaurs the correct food. 

As you trek through the woods of the kingdom, watch out for the showstopping holographic displays that bring dinosaurs back to life in true size. 

Using state-of-the-art holographic naked eye 3D technology, the immersive experience will transport you back to their pre-historic environment, so you can experience roaming and co-existing alongside the beautiful beasts in a way that you would never have imagined and has never been done before. 

Come face to face with a huge T-Rex

Let your imagination run wild, in the ultimate family experience, as you trek through the prehistoric kingdom. 

Here you’ll meet and interact with life-sized dinosaurs and other creatures – including a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex and the biggest installation, the Apatosaurus, which towers above at 18 metres long.  

Children of all ages – and adults, too – will be in awe of animatronic dinosaurs as they blend into the paths, ponds, gardens, woodlands and greenery of the park. 

Enjoy thrilling fairground rides for all the family, as well as educational experiences, including an excavation sand pit, dinosaur eggs, fossils, volcanoes, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and a walk-through fossil tunnel. 

Dino Kingdom trekkers can take a well-earned break and refuel with the wide offering of food and drink options and idyllic picnicking areas.

Dino Kingdom will be open to the public every day from Friday 23rd July until Sunday 8th August 2021. The park will open from 10am till 7pm every day, with hourly entry slots. Advance tickets are priced at £15 for adults, £13 for children (under 3s are free) and £54 for families of two adults and two children. Tickets are also available on the door. Join the Jurassic journey on Instagram and Facebook @dinokingdomuk. Tickets are on sale now.
