AN extraordinary new animatronic experience, which will see life-sized dinosaurs come to life, is coming to Birmingham.
Jurassic Kingdom: Where Dinosaurs Come To Life, will transport people back to a time when dinosaurs they ruled the earth.
In a UK first, over 30 true-to-life dinosaur models and installations will tour major UK cities, where they’ll set up camp in parklands, ready to roar and snarl at those brave enough to get up close and personal.
Diplodocus heads will poke 16 metres above the ground, amongst the tree canopy as Triceratops escort their young through the bushes beneath.
The ear-piercing screeches of the Pterosaurus will alert visitors to the danger in the skies above and guests must be wary of the spitting defence of the Pachycephalousaurus, in case he lurks around the next corner.
But wherever you are in Jurassic Kingdom, remember you’re never far from the ‘King of the Tyrant Lizards’ and the most famous dinosaur of them all - Tyrannosaurus Rex, standing 18 metres from head to tail.
After an exciting trek around the twisting trails of Jurassic Kingdom, younger visitors will be encouraged to pick up their brushes and become budding archaeologists in an excavation scene, where a T-Rex skeleton lurks just beneath the surface, waiting to be discovered.
The experience has been designed by Weli Creative - the team behind the sell-out Magical Lantern Festival.
David Lee, director at Weli Creative, said: “Jurassic Kingdom will be an incredible, awe-inspiring dinosaur experience like no other. It’s the first outdoor animatronic display of its kind in the UK and we can’t wait to open our doors to the public in 2017.
“We’ve seen through our work on Magical Lantern Festival that there’s a huge demand for unique, family-friendly events in the UK and we’re certain that adults will enjoy Jurassic Kingdom just as much as their children.”
The perfect treat for the family, it will be at Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens from May 20 until June 4.
