Eden have excelled this year in providing the perfect family day out for my dinomad son and his friends. What more could they want - finding dinosaurs in the worlds largest indoor rainforest!
On arrival collect your free Adventure Journal where you will find all of the information you need to become a Certified Dino Expert and collect the stamps as you complete all the dino activities at Eden.
Walk through a magical underwater scene to marvel at ancient sea life, then step into a landscape from 67 million years ago to explore a world of prehistoric beasts. Cower in the shadow of a life size T.rex and peep into a nest of Dromaeosaurus babies.
At the Palaeo Camp you can hone your palaeontology skills in the Dig Pit, sharpen your dinosaur knowledge and complete your Dino Expert training. There are also Jigsaurus puzzles to test your palaeontology skills and piece together creatures from the past.
As you wander around the site look out as you may come face to face with a ferocious Australoventor!
We spent 5 hours at Eden, which included stopping for a delicious lunch in the Eden Kitchen (before you enter to the Mediterranean Biome). It was a dry and sunny day so we wondered around quite relaxed as the children explored. Eden is a great rainy day venue too but expect it to be a lot busier!
The dinosaurs are at Eden this Summer until 2nd September 2015.
