If there’s one thing that just never stops failing to capture the imaginations of kids both big and small over generations, it’s dinosaurs – we just can’t get enough of ’em.
So when we found out Perth will soon be getting its first ever Dinosaur Theme Park featuring 20+ life-size dinosaurs stomping around, it’s fair to say we were giddier than John Hammond when he managed to convince Dr. Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler to come and visit his own little dinosaur theme park on an island off Costa Rica back in 1993.
Jurassic Kingdom is headed our way this upcoming school holidays, taking over Burswood Park with more than 20 life-size dinosaurs hiding in the bushes, grazing in the tree tops and towering above.
Whether you’re a budding palaeontologist or just love big lizards, there’ll be plenty of activities to do including a Prehistoric Education Zone featuring 10 interactive exhibits, roving performers, dinosaur nests, giant fossilised footprints, dino craft stations and even a fossil dig.
You can also visit the Jurassic Carnival featuring eight different rides and sideshow games, relax and refuel at one of delicious food trucks on hand and more.
Jurassic Kingdom will be open daily from Good Friday (April 7) until ANZAC Day (April 25), with staggered starting times and the ability to wander the park until 4pm each day.
Tickets are available now at jurassickingdom.com.au and include access to all exhibits, with children’s tickets also including the interactive and craft activities, the fossil dig and eight free carnival rides.
