Dinosaurs in the Park features 40 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and is sure to delight dino fans of all ages.

Transforming Central Park into a palaeontologist's playground from May 19th to June 11th, Dinosaurs in the Park offers an educational and enjoyable day out for the whole family. Visitors can wind their way along the Dinosaur Trail, solve puzzles, and even carry out some Jurassic dentistry by brushing the teeth of the resident T-Rex.

With dinosaurs round every corner, the park will be filled with classic favourites such as the Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Velociraptor, as well as the lesser-known Dilophosaurus, Kentrosaurus and Hyparosauras. Plus, there will be a guest appearance from real-life palaeontologist Dr Dean Lomax. There's also a food court, fairground rides and trampolines to add to the fun.

After an immensely successful debut year in 2022, Dinosaurs in the Park visits three fresh locations this year, premiering in Plymouth before visiting Cardiff and Manchester. Created by the organisers of Dinosaur Encounters Mini Golf, the Bristol Christmas Markets and the popular Mojito Beach Bars, Dinosaurs in the Park is the perfect half-term day out.
