Dinosaurs have arrived at Whipsnade!

24 Jul - 31 Oct 2021

Can you feel that? Did the ground just shake? Why have the birds all gone silent? That’s right, be prepared, the dinosaurs are here! 

Take your family on an adventure back in time to experience life-like, animatronic dinosaurs at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo - now extended through to October half term.


Whipsnade Zoo is hosting Zoorassic Park: an immersive exhibition of life-size animatronic dinosaurs sure to thrill any dino-mad kids (and grown-ups). Time travel back more than 66 million years and come face-to-face with your favourite dinosaurs.

Experience first-hand how these giant creatures moved and behaved as you track down several different species of dinosaur. You’ll learn why dinosaurs went extinct and how to save their modern-day equivalents from a similar fate. 

Enjoy the prehistoric fun at Whipsnade Zoo for children of all ages. 

A great value day out for all the family, entry to the Zoorassic Park experience is free with Zoo entry:

  • Get up close and personal with our life-sized, animatronic dinosaurs
  • Several different dinosaur species on display
  • Learn prehistoric facts
  • Discover fossils in our dino dig pit
  • It’s a roaring good day out!
  • Plus explore Whipsnade’s 600 acres and discover over 9,500 animals!

There's no need to book an additional ticket for our dinosaur exhibit, but please make sure Zoo admission tickets are purchased in advance.
