Dinosaur Days Stampede Into Port Lympne This Summer

This summer at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve visitors will enjoy prehistoric adventures with exciting dinosaur shows featuring a moving T- Rex, included in the price of their entry ticket.

Alongside the dinosaur shows, visitors will be able to take part in additional activities, for a small charge, including fossil digs priced at £2.50 per person and excavation digs, priced at £5 per person.

Every Sunday from 28th July to 25th August, Kent’s largest wild animal park and home to the UK’s largest outdoor dinosaur exhibition – Dinosaur Forest, will become a palaeontologist’s playground with interactive shows and dinosaur related fun taking place four times a day.

The fifteen-minute shows, where lucky children may get the chance to feed and learn commands to control the mighty T Rex, will take place at 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm and 3.15pm.  In between the shows, visitors can meet the T Rex as it enjoys walkabouts around the park.

Alongside the activities taking place in Dinosaur Forest, there will be a fun quiz with a chance to win roarsome prizes, such as an authentic Spinosaurus tooth from the late Cretaceous period, with certificate of authenticity.

Dinosaur Forest at Port Lympne, spans three acres of ancient forest, featuring over 100 life sized and anatomically correct models of creatures from a forgotten time.

Visitors will be able to explore the trails through the forest, to learn fascinating facts as they come face to face with the spinetingling Spinosaurus, marvel at the mighty T- Rex, watch out for the soaring Pterodactyls and delight at the sheer size of the diplodocus.

Meanwhile, across the Reserve, visitors will see hundreds of free roaming wild animals including the County’s only giraffes as they travel on safari truck through the South American, Asian and African Experiences.

There are also wooded walkways and paths to explore to see many more animals including the adorable lion cub trio at the top of the park and baby gorilla at Palace of the Apes.
