After visiting Dinosaur Adventure last week whilst on holiday I was so impressed I had to write about it.
We planned our day out here weeks ahead after searching the internet for days out close to our caravan site on holiday. I was really impressed with the website. It showed the variety of activities they had to offer and the entry price seamed reasonable, not that we had to worry about that to much as I changed up £20 worth of Tesco Clubcard Vouchers which paid for all five of us to get in (2 adults and 3 children).
As we drove in to park there were lots of Dinosaur signs along the path and we could see a big Dinosaur head peeking out from behind a tree in the distance which immediately got the boys excited.
As we entered we were given a booklet that the boys were to take around with them and stamp different sections along the way and once they had found and stamped each section they would receive a medal each.
As we walked around searching for Dinosaurs I was really impressed that a lot of it was through woods. The boys were really excited running around seeing who could spot a dinosaur first and they enjoyed reading the fact board that was placed next to each Dinosaur.
The whole park is really big and there is so much to do there. They have an indoor soft play area but we didn’t get to go in as the boys were having so much fun playing in the huge outside play area they have. There are massive Dinosaurs the children can run through and then slide down the tail, there was a small trampoline in the smaller children’s play area, a rope climb, a small climbing wall and tons of space to run around.
There is a really great sanded area with little ‘tools’ that the children can use to uncover Dinosaur bones.
We took a picnic with us but we saw a great spacious, clean restaurant with a Dinosaur theme that looked great.
The Secret Animal Garden was also fantastic. There were so many animals to see and it was lovely to see that they looked well cared for. There were pigs, wallabies, guinea pigs, rabbits and snakes to name a few.
For me, Dippy’s Splash Zone was most impressive. It was a really hot day and I was so glad I remembered the boys’ swimming costumes. The splash zone was incredible! There were sprinklers dotted about shooting water up from the ground, big water shooters the children could aim at each other, a small water slide, a big bucket high up that when filled to the top tipped down on all the children who were counting down and screaming with delight below all on a colourful, soft flooring.
I have put together a short video of our day which you can view on my you tube channel here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GDBmtsVges
