Jurassic Specials

Are you brave enough to get close to a giant T-Rex and Raptor?
Wrap up warm and step back in time in the Exhibition Shed for a roar-some half term adventure.


19th & 20th February 2020 | Oxenhope Exhibition Shed |
Advance Booking only for Ranger Training

Get up close with an animatronic 8ft T-Rex and mischievous Raptor, and join our experts as they teach you how to be a dinosaur ranger. There’ll be cute baby dinosaurs for those not quite brave enough to meet the bigger boys, and live reptiles waiting to meet you too.

See the Oxenhope Exhibition Shed transformed back to the Jurassic era, ride in specially decorated carriages and enjoy spotting the dinosaur eggs at each station. Don’t forget to pick up your activity sheet on arrival.
