Roaring into Heaton Park in Manchester this summer.
Make this a school holiday to remember and join us on a journey back in time to the prehistoric, where you will get to meet a different life-sized dinosaur at each twist and turn along our Dinosaur trail.
Help the Palaeontologist find his tools and solve the puzzles along the way. Visit our Dinosaur Dentist and even brush a T Rex’s teeth! The Dino Trail winds its way past well known favourites such as Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Velociraptor as well as a Dilophosaurus, Kentrosaurus and Hyparosaurus, each dinosaur has a fun facts plaque complete with scare factor!. These dinosaurs and many more will eventually lead you to our huge, hungry T-Rex, poised and ready to attack!
Our 40 life-sized, realistic animatronic dinosaurs from the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods move their heads, jaws, and claws and hiss, snarl, and growl, to provide an exhilarating and truly immersive experience. We also offer quiet sessions for noise sensitive visitors – see our ticket link!
After you have marvelled at each dinosaur, head to our interactive zone. Discover what it is like to be a Palaeontologist and see how best to find Dinosaurs on your doorstep. Explore fossils in our excavation pit and then design your own interactive Dinosaur. Dinosaurs in the Park provides a wide range of fun and educational activities for children and grown-ups alike.
