Who else was always so jealous of those kids in Jurassic Park? Getting the opportunity to run around with dinosaurs (and Jeff Goldblum <3)? Before the whole system failed and the dinos escaped, of course! Well, with Dinosaurs In The Wild, you can. Though I can’t promise your safe return…
Dinosaurs In The Wild is an amazingly immersive experience. With the help of special 3D & robotic effects, as well as some superb actors, they’ll transport you back 67 million years to the Jurassic period. In groups of around 20, you are guided through all the departments of Chronotex, from the room where you’ll be sure to see some eggs about to hatch, to the research lab, where you can play with dinosaur poop.
The best room has to be The Lookout, where you’ll find big windows with views of all corners of the park. Just keep your eyes on those T-Rex’s! You’ll probably notice the dinosaurs here don’t quite look like those in the Jurassic Park movies. That’s because those films were made 20 years ago, and since then scientists have learned even more about the extinct animals. So, don’t be alarmed when you see T-rex with fur and velociraptors with feathers.
I was so impressed with Dinosaurs In The Wild, and am dying to go back! The special effects were brilliant, so much so that you forget they’re not real and find yourself getting far too excited at the sight of a newly hatched, fluffy dino. I also cannot get over how talented all the actors are. They all learn all the facts and parts for each of the rooms so they get to rotate their characters. They don’t just read from a simple script either, you can ask them questions and they’ll give you scientifically correct answers!
I cannot recommend this experience enough. Fun for all ages, though can get a little scary at times for the younger ones. A couple of us even thought it was on the same level as the type of immersive attractions you find at Disney parks.
