Dinosaurs at Adventure Wonderland

Horace the Pliosaur will be the star attraction at Adventure Wonderland, taking up 'roar'sidence during half term, Mon 17th – Fri 21st February


Everyone is dinosaur crazy at Adventure Wonderland this February.

Horace the Pliosaur will be the star attraction, taking up 'roar'sidence during half term, Mon 17th – Fri 21st February. Horace is a huge 35 foot-long sea lizard model, fresh out of the Jurassic ocean. He also has an interactive cinematic experience in his belly! It will be a fact-filled, fun, family experience.

Horace will be joined by Terence the T-Rex, who'll be on his best behaviour, wandering around the park.
There'll be educational dinosaur games, puzzles and colouring. Plus, a face painter will be turning the little ones into their favourite 'roar'some animal, super hero or princess (extra fee applies).

Other attractions over half-term include the maze and play area, Caterpillar ride, Charlie Cool's Cars, Jabberwocky double-helix slide and Shetland World. Inside there's the giant indoor play centre, Wild Thing! which includes Jungle Zap Zone, an interactive reaction speed game.

Outdoor attractions are closed the rest of February.
