Whipsnade Zoo’s dinosaurs aren’t extinct yet!

24 Jul - 31 Oct 2021

It’s your last chance to visit our life-like animatronic dinosaurs at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo!

Visit during the October half term to enjoy our brand-new Halloween trail and learn about gruesome dinosaur feeding habits.

But you’d better be quick, as our dinosaurs will go extinct after 31 October!

This Halloween, our Zoorassic Park event is getting a monstrous upgrade. Try our new interactive trail to see how your teeth compare to a Tyrannosaurus Rex, which of our dinosaurs was partial to fish for dinner and who lives in the giant pile of Parasaurolophus poo!

But, that’s not all. Journey around the rest of Whipsnade Zoo throughout the half term to discover some of the weird and wonderful ways our animals feed and forage. Join our daily talks* to uncover disgusting habits and find out which of our residents need to work on their table manners.

Our Zoorassic Park event runs until 31 October and our brand-new half term activities and trail are available 23-31 October. All activities are suitable 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:

  • NEW for half term: learn about repulsive dinosaur diets
