Myself and partner saw this on the 02 website and booked it for our daughter's 8th birthday. It was very expensive-£11.25 for a child, and £14.25 for adults. However it is sold as an upclose and personal experience with life size animatronic dinosaurs so we felt the price was worth it.
On arrival we were met by very friendly staff, joined a small group and went back in time to the land of dinosaurs. When we walked through it reminded me of the dinosaurs at Crystal Palace when I was a child-very plastic and hardly moving ! Literally, maybe a tongue moved, or a bit of the head, but that really was it. Our daughter however,was completely enthralled, and our guide was very informative explaining each dinosaur and encouraging the children to ask and answer questions. However I found the layout disappointing, and the guide part was over in around half an hour. Then you can walk around and try out the quizzes and presentations-one was a sand pit with plastic fossils in it which was pretty abysmal to be honest. The CGI aquarium was a complete let down. As mentioned already,its all over in around an hour and a half, and to get out you have to walk through the tacky gift shop which is charging £8 for a Dinosaur Unleashed Swim bag & other ridiculously expensive rubbish. We left in a hurry, and felt let down as yet again, here in the Uk, you get charged over the odds to be able to take your children out for family time. Its simply not fair. very poor value for money.However I have managed to save my friends money but telling them not to bother going.
