T-Rex Excavation Scene
Children will be in awe of these dinosaurs as they wander through Jurassic Kingdom but the highlight for younger children will be a hands-on educational activity where children will have a rare opportunity to dig up dinosaur bones in an excavation scene! Deep beneath the sand lie T. rex bones which have to be unearthed to reveal the full fossil. A truly fascinating experience for children and a chance for them to work as a team of palaeontologists to complete the task!
The most complete T. rex skeleton recovered was named ‘Sue’, with over 90% of the bones recovered. It was discovered in South Dakota by the Palaeontologist Sue Hendrickson. It was the highest ever selling fossil, selling for $7.6 million.
Along the Jurassic Kingdom route will be an education marquee for school groups and families to enter and watch educational documentaries about dinosaurs produced by the BBC on a large projection screen. Children and adults alike will enjoy a 30-min viewing experience and learn more in-depth information about how dinosaurs lived millions of years ago.
Step inside the world of Virtual Reality. The newest technology pulling you into a whole new immersive world and no doubt will be one of the highlights of the event, which will blow your mind!
