Get up close with an animatronic T-Rex and Raptor, and join our experts as they teach you how to be a dinosaur ranger. There’ll be cute baby dinosaurs for those not quite brave enough to meet the bigger boys, and live reptiles waiting to meet you too.

See the Oxenhope Exhibition Shed transformed back to the Jurassic era, ride the specially decorated diesel train and enjoy spotting the dinosaur eggs at each station. Don’t forget to pick up your activity booklet on arrival.

Times -

T-Rex: 10:00 and 15:30
Rex is 8ft tall and is as authentic as they come. See his huge teeth and hear him ROAR! His Safari Ranger will guide him around, keep him in check and under control. He might be ferocious looking but don’t be scared, he’s funny and friendly really!

Raptor: 11:55 and 13:50
Ritchie might sound cute but he’s not fully trained yet and is ready to scare anyone who gets too close! Watch out for his sharp teeth. His keeper will tell you all about this naughty, mischievous Raptor.

Cute Baby Dinosaurs: 09:35, 11:30, 13:25 and 15:10
These cute babies are hungry for attention and not at all shy. They love to nibble fingers and take a good look around before letting out a baby roar.

Live Reptile Handling: various times
Dare you smile at a crocodile? Meet the real life descendants of dinosaurs. Our trained handlers will help you to get close to these amazing animals.
