Dinosaurs In The Wild

Monday, 26 February 2018

 I've loved dinosaurs since I was little and Dorothy seems to have caught the dinosaur bug too. She's stolen Mikey's dinosaur books and we've already been to see the exhibit at the Natural History Museum, which we really enjoyed.

I've been looking at some other dinosaur activities and really liked the look of Dinosaurs In The Wild in London, so after sorting out travel details etc, we decided to go yesterday!

For those of you that haven't heard of Dinosaurs In The Wild, it is an immersive time-travelling adventure where you go back 67 million years and meet living dinosaurs!

Now I don't want to give away too much or spoil the experience for you, so I'll only tell you a little bit about it!

We arrived in plenty of time for our timeslot and after a bag and ticket check, we found ourselves in the seating area waiting for our turn for travelling into the past. We were then met by a Chronotex employee (Chronotex Enterprises invented time travel and built TimeBase 67 where you travel to.) and a guide who would be with us throughout the time travelling experience.

We were also given glasses that would protect us from the UV rays from time travelling.

After travelling back to the Cretaceous period, we were then guided through TimeBase 67, the research station where scientists study living dinosaurs. Among other things, we got to explore and a lab and even put your hands in dinosaur poo!

We also visited the hatchery and saw a triceratops hatching!

We also visited the lookout, where there were panoramic views to the outside of TimeBase 67 and we got to see the dinosaurs up close. Please excuse the fuzziness of the windows, it's because of the UV-I didn't use glasses on my phone!

We had an absolutely amazing time at Dinosaurs In The Wild! The experience lasts about 70 minutes, but allow a little extra as people in your timeslot are separated into smaller groups so it's not crowded. In our group, there was only about 8-10 people.

Age wise, the people at Dinosaurs In The Wild say this experience is suitable for people aged 5 years and over, but is open to parental discretion. As you know, Dot is 3, but she had a brilliant time. It was a little bit noisy at the beginning but apart from that, there isn't anything really scary. Also, don't think that this is just for little ones- Mikey had a blast and there were a lot of people there that didn't have children. It really is suitable for everyone!

For any of you that love dinosaurs or know someone that does, you have to go and check this out! The experience is in London until 31st July and open 6 days a week, including weekends.
