In a first for the city, 30 full scale prehistoric creatures will be lurking in Glasgow Botanic Gardens as the Jurassic Kingdom tour comes to town from 26 August. Visitors can travel back over 65 million years to come face to face with a fearsome T-Rex, watch the Deinonychus and Tenontosaurus do battle or meet the gentle but most definitely giant 16 metre long Diplodocus.
As the UK’s first ever national outdoor animatronic dino-tour, snarling jaws, moving eyes, swaying tails and roaring sound effects will make for an exhilarating experience. Visitors will follow a trail around the leafy Botanics and encounter the giant dinosaurs as part of a walking tour which lasts around 60 minutes, depending on how fast you walk… or run.
Family-friendly Jurassic Kingdom offers an unmissable opportunity to learn more about these fascinating creatures with an educational marquee showing dinosaur documentaries and fact-filled worksheet for primary school aged children.
Other activities include an excavation scene where younger children can get hands on and dig to unearth a T-Rex fossil, immersive virtual reality headsets offering a range of digital dinosaur experiences and plenty of photo opportunities for those all-important Spinosaurus selfies.
The event runs from 26 August until 10 September daily from 10am to 6pm with last entry at 5pm.
