You can’t come to the dinosaurs, so the dinosaurs are coming to a living room near you during half term.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure – the only dedicated dinosaur theme park in the UK, is determined that children shouldn’t miss out on some fun over the much-needed half-term break, so it’s hosting its first ever virtual dino extravaganza online.

Despite events being on hold and attractions across the country closed until further notice, families will still be able to enjoy its virtual February Fantasy event which begins on Monday 15th February, lasting the entire week, with the final event taking place on Friday 19th February.

Hosted for free on the park’s social media channels at 1pm every weekday, the park mascot Dippy and members of the Dinomite Gang can be beamed directly to the UK’s devoted dino fans at home, wherever they are in the country.

With the aim of amusing and engaging children and dino-lovers everywhere, whilst offering parents a much-needed break from entertaining their little ones during lockdown, the schedule for the week includes:

  • Animal Day – hosted on Monday, there will be an introduction to the hosts and Dippy to find out what the week consists of, while meeting some of the animals who live in the park’s secret garden
  • Adventure Day – a hunt to catch the troublesome trolls, it will follow the trail around the park on Tuesday
  • Reading Day – on Wednesday, hosts will read aloud their favourite fairy stories
  • Active Day – Dippy’s Dinosaur Disco Dancing will be on Thursday
  • Craft Park – on the final day, create frozen fossil fingers with Dippy using ice

The park’s company director, Adam Goymour, said of the plans: “Whilst we would’ve loved to put on our annual event which brings so much fun and joy to families, the nation’s ongoing battle with Covid-19 continues to take precedence and we must remain closed.

“However, we are not going to let that stop our fun, so the events team has put in a lot of effort to move the February Fantasy online. With weeks of planning and plenty of imagination, we hope the timetable of activities and entertainment will give children something to look forward to and break up the monotony of the everyday.”

In addition to its February Fantasy event, Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure has produced a range of at-home activities, consisting of colouring, puzzles and quizzes, designed to be used as part of home-schooling for younger children, which will be available to download from its website.

The park will also be hosting a variety of dinosaur-themed activities every Friday across its social channels, suitable for all the family.
