What: Dinosaurs Unleashed
Where: The Eden Project, Cornwall
When: Monday 21 July – 16 September 2014
Tell me more: A thrilling journey 67 million years back in time to the lost world of dinosaurs awaits adventure seekers at the Eden Project this summer.
Dinosaurs Unleashed will be the biggest, most compelling summer activity Eden has ever staged. As well as immersing visitors into the Cretaceous world to give them an amazing close encounter with some incredibly realistic dinosaurs, visitors can become dino detectives and learn how scientists worked out how these incredible animals looked, what they ate, where and when they lived, how they moved and even how they smelt and saw.
The Crater of the Tyrant King – a fully immersive walk-through experience with the most feared predator of all, a Tyrannosaurus rex, as it devours its Triceratops prey. This incredibly detailed experience promises to be a sensory feast that visitors will never forget.
The Escaped Dinosaur – hone your explorer skills and help to search for the lost dinosaur. If you’re brave enough, you might even come within touching distance of the lost monster!
Explorer stations – at the Explorer Field Stations you will find out all about explorers from the past and maybe even the present and find out why they made history and what we can learn from them.
The Dig Pit – the Dig Pit will provide adventure of a different kind as families burrow down to discover a fossilised Stegosaurus skeleton and see how paleontologists first found and pieced together the giants of the past. A great activity for the whole family to get stuck into!
Dinosaur exhibition – The dinosaur exhibition will feature an amazing collection of dinosaur fossils, including real dinosaur eggs, a fossilised brain, a whole skeleton and a real T–rex tooth. Find out why scientists think they were so BIG and some of the theories of how they think they were wiped out 65 million years ago.
Price: included in the cost of admission to Eden
NB Wednesday 3 to Tuesday 16 September 2014 (only The Crater of the Tyrant King and the Dinosaur exhibition will be open)
