Dinosaur Adventure

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 am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
