Dinosaurs to turn Cardiff’s Bute Park into Jurassic Park this year

CARDIFF’s Bute Park will be transformed into a Jurassic Park from 21 August until 5 September, as DINOSAURS roam free in the Welsh capital
Cardiff will play host to prehistoric playgrounds, featuring more than 50 animatronic dinosaur scenes, including a fearsome, 18m tall T-Rex that breathes and sways its tail as it hunts for prey; an Iguanodon’s furious battle against a Deinonychus; Pterosaurs that screech as they soar through the trees; a 15m tall Brachiosaurus, guarding her eggs and a 16m long Diplodocus, who cries out to passers by.
The new event will allow guests to get up close and personal with some of the most fascinating beasts ever to roam the earth, with the promise of an encounter with a meticulously life-like dinosaur around every corner of the beautiful parkland trails.

For two weeks, the picturesque banks of the River Taff will become a watering hole for the majestic creatures, providing the perfect summer holiday treat.

As well as being a thrilling day out for guests young and old, Jurassic Encounter will make education a fun and hands-on experience through a host of interactive exhibits. Children will be invited to become Palaeontologists for the day by climbing inside dinosaur eggs, digging up dinosaur bones in an excavation pit; dodging the spray of a Dilophosaurus and even riding on the backs of baby Triceratops.

And for those who want to relax after walking the perilous path through the dinosaurs’ domain, a refreshment area will offer street food.

A special, early bird discount is available for one month, by entering the code EARLYBIRD20 at the checkout.
