On Sunday we headed to Greenwich to attend a session at Dinosaurs in the Wild. We are quite lucky as we don’t live to far by car and go to the O2 Arena a lot to eat, so knew exactly where we were heading.
When we arrived at Dinosaurs in the Wild the excitement really started kicking in as you could hear the rumble of the time machine travelling and we were more than ready to head back in time.
We headed into the Chronotex Enterprises departure lounge to depart on our journey back 67 Million years. Once we arrived in our back in time adventure we were taken to TimeBase 67, an extraordinary research station on the Cretaceous plains, where scientists conduct pioneering studies on living dinosaurs.
We got to see some truly incredible prehistoric animals in our time-jumping voyage to TimeBase 67, including the iconic predator Tyrannosaurus, the gargantuan Alamosaurus (one of the largest dinosaurs ever), the tank-like Ankylosaurus, and herds of Triceratops, all interacting with their natural habitat.
During our time in TimeBase 67, we experienced dinosaurs as never before, across a dazzling spectrum of life stages – as eggs, fuzzy hatchlings, juveniles and adults. We even got to hold Tyrannosaurus teeth and sift through their dung!
The TimeBase’s Lookout is a truly amazing space and is the only part of the research station that sits above ground. Its large, reinforced windows offer mesmerising panoramic views of the prehistoric life on the Cretaceous plains outside. This was an opportunity for us to be able to see the dinosaurs up close and personal in their natural habitat.
The whole experience was absolutely amazing and the whole family loved it. I don’t want to give too much away as it will ruin the experience for anyone wanting to go. But, I have to say going through the TimeBase definitely had it’s twists and turns, there were mild scares and a thrill of excitement all the way through.
One of the highlights of our experience in TimeBase 67 was seeing dinosaurs hatch from their eggs. We even got to name one that was fresh out – A Lexisaurus! (named after my stepdaughter). This put a full buzz through Lex and she was rabbiting on about it all the way home, pretending to be a dinosaur, stomping around and trying to eat everyone.
I would highly recommend booking to go on the Dinosaurs in the Wild experience before it leaves Greenwich on the 2nd of September, it’s an experience that can’t be missed – Especially if you have dinosaur fans at home!
