The highly-anticipated upcoming Dino Kingdom event at Wythenshawe Park will use state-of-the-art 3D and AR technology to “bring dinosaurs back to life” this summer.

Stomping into Manchester in July, Dino Kingdom is being touted as an “epic, prehistoric exploration” which will recreate a Jurassic adventure for families via digital tech.

The event is set to feature over 100 lifelike dinosaurs and wildlife creatures – including a Tyrannosaurus Rex and Apatosaurus wandering among crocodiles, frogs, bees and spiders.

A very special 6-metre-long dino will be illuminated with anatomic mapping, too – teaching kids about the biology of these prehistoric beings.

A Dino Kingdom app has been designed to help visitors navigate trails and discover hidden dinosaurs via phone screens, offering insights into how these creatures lived millions of years ago.


An AR activity also lets kids draw their very own dinosaur; which can be scanned and brought to life!

Dino Keeper experiences (using AR technology) allow guests to feed dinosaurs, whilst immersive holographic displays will bring creatures back to life in true size, allowing people to walk among them in a prehistoric kingdom.


Fairground rides will be on site, as well as an excavation sand pit, dinosaur eggs, fossils, volcanoes, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and a walk-through fossil tunnel. 

A wide offering of food and drink options will also be scattered across the park.
