Immersed in a primordial world, cinema-goers will enjoy soaring with Tetradactylies, stomping with Stegosaurus’ and roaring like a T-Rex as they enjoy the Dinosaur-themed media show.

Led into the cinema experience through a roar-some dino safari, explorers can get up-close and personal as they seek out the giant animatronic primaeval creatures including an eight-metre-long Tyrannosaurus-Rex, 4-metre Dilophosaurus and Velociraptor as well as a Bambiraptor, and a Pterosaur.
