Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure is situated within 85 acres of a beautiful and natural woodland setting and endeavours to create a fun park and facilities accessible to all our guests.
Access in the Park
Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure is, in part, located on a hillside so access to the lower part of the park is best taken through the Dinosaur Trail, which has a lower gradient and avoids the steeper hills.
It is recommended that unaccompanied wheelchair users do not do this area without assistance.
Path surfaces are either tarmac or crushed and rolled stone.
The attraction consists of two indoor play areas, Dinomite, and Dippy-ville for younger children. Outdoor adventure play facilities, Raptor Racers, Dippy’s Splash Zone, Predator High Ropes, Dinosaur Trails, Secret Animal Garden, Deer Safari, a Gift Shop and Food & Beverage outlets.
Further information on the park can be found online and in our printed leaflets. If you would like an A3 photocopied version, please ask any member of crew or telephone Guest Services 01603 876310.
Crew members can be identified by their name badge/company uniform. All crew at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure will be happy to help in any way they can, so please ask for any required assistance.
Free Car Parking
Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure has a large car park with ample car parking spaces.
We have specific parking spaces close to the park entrance allocated to guests with a disabled parking permit. Cars parked must display the card provided by local authorities under the government Blue Badge Parking Scheme.
Flood lighting is provided within the car park near to the park entrance.
Reduced Entry for Disabled Guests
Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure offers reduced entry for any guests who are Registered Disabled.
Guests requesting the purchase of a disabled ticket for entry, or a season ticket, will be asked to provide documentation to validate their need for the disabled reduced entry. This could be in the form of a blue badge, or a letter from a recognised authority confirming the customer is in receipt of DLA or PIP. Once validation has been received the reduced entry or season ticket will be processed.
If a carer entry or season ticket is requested, as long as the above criteria’s have been met, a reduced carer entry or season ticket can be purchased alongside a disabled person.
Only 1 carer ticket may be purchased per disabled entry or season ticket.
All season ticket holders MUST bring their card(s) with them for entry or the normal admission will be charged.
