We are great lovers of Dinosaurs and this year Chester Zoo have a new exhibition featuring 19 amazing life-like robotic replicas of the creatures that roamed the earth 200 million years ago, including the giant Brachiosaurus, the iconic Stegosaurus and the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Dinosaurs bite back allows yout to roam round the fantastic exhibition at your own pace and there are superb Presenter-saurus (staff) who make the experience even better. Even better is that entry is included in your zoo admission price (£53 for a family ticket). We attended with Cara from Freckles Family, who’s youngest son Hugo is obsessed with all things dinosaur and it was so much fun and he kept us all informed as to what dinosaur we were looking at and weather it was a herbivore or not.
Helen from Have a Lovely Time was also there with her two daughters and it goes to show how life like the dinosaurs were as her youngest daughter did scream at them on occasion.
We spent the whole day at Chester Zoo this week and had a brilliant time, even a bit of rain didn’t spoil the day. Having not been before, I was really surprised at just how much we all enjoyed our zoo experience. I know that zoos are not always everyone’s cup of tea, but they do play an important part in conservation nowadays and this was something we discussed as a family.
Both the boys would go back tomorrow if they could and loved every minute of it.
The dinosaurs are included in the price of your normal zoo ticket. You can win a year’s pass to the zoo by entering the competition here. I advise getting their early as no matter how much time you have, you never get round to seeing it all.
Disclosure: We were provided with our day out courtesy of the zoo and also received a junior animal adoption kit too.
No wonder you had fun. Sounds fantastic – we visited years ago when John’s parents still lived in Cheshire (and I did when I was little and vividly remember seeing the elephants!). Juliex
It was dino-tastic, wasn’t it? Thanks for your fab company. x
Looks fab. I’ve never been there but if I’m ever in the neighbourhood I’d love to go. x
Great to see families enjoying the Dinosaurs Bite Back exhibition! Love the photos!
