Wythenshawe Park is being transformed into an immersive ‘dino kingdom’ this summer

Emily Sergeant Emily Sergeant - 16th April 2021

An immersive family experience with a pre-historic twist is heading to one of Manchester’s most popular parks in July.

From the team behind the award-winning light and lantern festival Lightopia, which took over Heaton Park this past festive season, comes Dino Kingdom – an epic outdoor, prehistoric exploration that features more than 100 life-like moving and roaring dinosaurs and creatures to uncover, plus state-of-the-art 3D and AR technology.

Dino Kingdom is “bringing dinosaurs back to life” at Wythenshawe Park, with unforgettable interactive experiences and thrilling fairground rides for all the family.

There’ll be 70 life-sized dinosaurs dotted around the park – including a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Apatosaurus, which towers above at 18 metres long – and there’ll also be some smaller dinosaurs to seek out, including hatching babies and other interactive “beastly beings” amongst the woodland, such as crocodiles, frogs, bees, spiders and much more.

Set to be an educational experience as much as an adventure, Dino Kingdom will be perfect for those budding palaeontologists out there, with an excavation sand pit, dinosaur eggs, fossils, volcanoes, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and a walk-through fossil tunnel all on site.


Trekkers can also take a well-earned break and refuel with the wide offering of food and drink options and idyllic picnicking areas at the park.

Dino Kingdom will be open to the public 11am-7pm daily, with hourly entry slots, from Friday 23rd July – Sunday 8th August 2021.


Advance tickets are priced at £15 for adults, £13 for children – under threes can enter for free – £52 for families of two adults and two children, and £14 for concessions.

Tickets are also available on the door.
