Prehistoric experience takes over Botanical Gardens from 20 May until 4 June
Jurassic Kingdom: Where Dinosaurs Come To Life, is an extraordinary, new animatronic experience, which will see life-sized DINOSAURS taking over Birmingham Botanical Gardens from 20 May until 4 June, where visitors will be transported back to a time when they ruled the earth.
In a UK first, over 30 true-to-life dinosaur models and installations will transform the 15 stunning acres of gardens as part of a tour across major UK cities in seven months, ready to roar, spit and snarl at those brave enough to get up close and personal.
Diplodocus heads will poke 16 metres above the ground, amongst the tree canopy as Triceratops escort their young through the bushes beneath. The ear-piercing screeches of the Pterosaurus will alert visitors to the danger in the skies above and guests must be wary of the spitting defence of the Pachycephalousaurus, in case he lurks around the next corner.
But wherever you are in Jurassic Kingdom, remember you’re never far from the ‘King of the Tyrant Lizards’ and the most famous dinosaur of them all – Tyrannosaurus Rex, standing 18 metres from head to tail.
After an exciting trek around the twisting trails of Jurassic Kingdom, younger visitors will be encouraged to pick up their brushes and become budding archeologists in our Excavation Scene, where a T-Rex skeleton lurks just beneath the surface, waiting to be discovered.
Designed by Weli Creative – the team behind the Magical Lantern Festival – Jurassic Kingdom will be visiting several locations in the Uk and additional tour venues and dates can be found on the event website – www.jurassickingdom.uk
David Lee, Director at Weli Creative, said: “Jurassic Kingdom will be an incredible, awe-inspiring dinosaur experience like no other. It’s the first outdoor animatronic display of its kind in the UK and we can’t wait to open our doors to the public in 2017.
“We’ve seen through our work on Magical Lantern Festival that there’s a huge demand for unique, family-friendly events in the UK and we’re certain that adults will enjoy Jurassic Kingdom just as much as their children.”
Tickets are now on sale from http://www.jurassickingdom.uk priced at £11.50 for adults, £9.50 for children as well as family tickets and concessions being available.
You can also add on a VR Experience for £5.
