About Jurassic Kingdom Edinburgh

Jurassic Kingdom: Where Dinosaurs Come To Life, continues its UK & European Tour for 2018 starting with Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh. Launching on the 30th March and closing on the 15th April 2018 before it travels to Sheffield, Rotterdam, Cardiff and Nottingham.

Jurassic Kingdom, is a spectacular outdoor dinosaur experience aimed at family audiences with over 30 impressive installations of animated dinosaurs with electronic moving parts. Animatronics include arms moving up and down, tails swaying side-to-side, heads moving up and down, eyes blinking and jaws opening wide with roaring sound effects. Making for a truly awesome educational and entertaining Jurassic experience!

This is the first outdoor dinosaur experience of its kind in the UK and a truly entertaining and educational experience for children of all ages. Visitors will explore the gardens and parklands and uncover epic life-sized replica dinosaurs from everybody’s favorite, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops to flying reptiles like pterosaurs.

Children will be in awe of these animatronic dinosaurs as they blend into the paths, ponds, gardens, woodlands and greenery of the parks. Children also have the chance to dig up dinosaur bones in an excavation scene!

Along the Jurassic Kingdom route will be an education marquee for school groups and families to enter and watch educational documentaries about dinosaurs produced by the BBC on a large projection screen. Children and adults alike will enjoy a 30-min viewing experience and learn more in-depth information about how dinosaurs lived, millions of years ago.

The festival also has a handful of street food and drink vendors to keep visitors fed and watered as they wander through Jurassic Kingdom. A range of educational and entertaining branded merchandise will also be available for purchase within the retail marquee so visitors can take home a memento of their experience!
