Dino Kingdom, Leicester
27 May – 12 June 2022
Calling all Dinosaur fans! The epic outdoor family experience Dino Kingdom is heading to Leicester for the perfect Jurassic day out over the May half term holidays.
Dino Kingdom takes over Abbey Park with huge prehistoric beasts descending on the beautiful green parkland in the centre of Leicester from Friday 27 May to Sunday 12 June 2022.
Fresh from roaming around London, the animatronic dinosaurs will bring ancient history back to life with the jaw-droppingly realistic models that move and roar led by the gigantic T-rex, King of the Jurassic era, and not forgetting an 18-metre-long Apatosaurus!
Coming from the creative minds behind the award-winning Lightopia Festival, families will journey back millions of years to the time when these majestic beasts reigned over the land and see them in their natural outdoor habitat.
Event organiser Ian Xiang said: “Bringing experiences to families that educate, entertain and inspire is our goal. Come along and stroke a dinosaur, dig a fossil, ride a dragon, hunt for dino eggs, sing a song on the stage, dress up and learn all about dinosaurs at the same time.”
Having already entertained families in Manchester and Nottingham in 2021, the Dino Kingdom Leicester experience is packed with new features for 2022. A Dinosaur Egg Hunt, Digital Village with AR and VR pod experience, live music, dinosaur-themed inflatable obstacle course and Dino Mini Golf are some of the new attractions in store.
Families can be sure of a great time with loads to see and do. Grab a dino hunting kit and find the hidden eggs to win a free gift; learn all about the anatomy of a dinosaur thanks to 3D mapping in the Digital Village, or brave an encounter with an immersive dinosaur sound installation in the woods.
An excavation area where budding palaeontologists can dig for discoveries, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and gigantic fossil tunnel, as well as a fairground with rides for all ages make for a great day out.
A Live Music stage offers the chance for budding singers to take up the mic and perform between a line up of acts to enjoy. Watch with a picnic or pick up some food and drink that is available on site.
The Dinosaur Trail, Egg Hunting, Excavation, Digital Village and Live Music are included in the ticket price, while Mini Golf and ride tokens for the fairground can be booked at the time of ticket purchase for preferential prices.
