Until now dinosaurs were thought extinct, but it seems the abundant plant life of Eden Project has given the prehistoric creatures new life.
The team at Eden are calling on all junior (and senior) explorers to help them track down the escaped dinosaurs and learn all about our Earth’s past.
There is no time to lose, we must find the dinosaurs!
Head to Eden Project this summer between 21 July and 2 September for a truly immersive experience, Dinosaurs Unleashed, it’s a sensory feast that you’ll never forget! Step boldly into an ancient, exotic landscape of raw earth, rocks, roots, ferns, dripping mosses and giant redwood trees, habitat of the frog, snake and giant centipede. As you walk through atmospheric morning mist, you’ll hear Pterosaurs soaring overhead and smell the subtle scent of conifers on the air.
Become an explorer – Clue up at Basecamp before striking out on your expedition. At this first base, you’ll learn all you need to complete your quest around Eden.
Explorer Field Stations – Meet explorers from the past. Find out why they went down in history as some of the greatest adventurers and what we can learn from them.
The Crater of the Tyrant King – Dare you enter the Crater? You’ll encounter the most feared predator of all, a Tyrannosaurus rex, as it devours its Triceratops prey!
The Dig Pit – Dig deep into the past to uncover a dinosaur skeleton, and see how humans discovered and pieced together this world by finding fossils. A great activity for the whole family to get stuck into! There will also be a junior version for the under-5s.
Dinosaur exhibition – In our Core building, discover why people are so fascinated by dinosaurs. Find out why scientists think they were so BIG and why they think they were wiped out 65 million years ago.
The exhibition will also feature an amazing collection of dinosaur fossils that has never been publicly exhibited before, including real dinosaur eggs, a fossilised brain, a whole skeleton and a real T-Rex tooth.
Adventure Journal – When you arrive at Eden you’ll be given a free Adventure Journal where you can record details of your adventure here.
Note for parents and carers of youngsters (of a possibly nervous disposition): the Crater of the Tyrant King is an authentic and immersive experience. It shows a very realistic (and slightly gory!) scene. Please check with our staff if you have any questions/concerns before joining the queue.
