This is a steeply wooded valley with lots of animals (real) and dinosaurs (animatronic). The main car parks are high above the park entrance and the pathway down is VERY steep. Staff are friendly and helpful, and admission, esp with a discount brochure, not expensive. the train seemed a bit tame and short until reaching its destination.. (won't spoil the... More

Located in the amazing and beautiful Lincolnshire countryside, Jurassic Dinosaur Park is Europe’s biggest and best wildlife attraction! Whether you choose to ride the Super Safari Simulator, get up close and personal with the robotic T-Rex (Terrifying Terry!) or explore the 4D world of “The Land That Time Forgot.” You will be blown away by the adrenaline fuelled, action and...

We really enjoyed our day here. The kids (aged 2 and 4) loved the dinosaurs they were a bit scared of the roars to begin with but soon got used to them and actively looked for the next one. They also enjoyed the sea lion show. The new soft play wasn't finished but the little bit that was open was... More

Disappointed with this trip. The park was very run down and expensive. The lovely glossy brochure did not reflect what we saw. The dinosaurs were old, the lion enclosure was plain with faeces not collected. It was extremely steep and at times not accessible with a pram which was not mentioned anywhere! Saying that 4 year old still loved it,... More

To get the maximum from your visit then aim to arrive-by 10:30, this should not be difficult if you are bringing children, once you arrive then get familiar with the layout check out the times of each event then take it from there . Every event is interesting if the children like Dinosaurs then this event is just terrific, we... More

We only ended up here as Watermouth Castle was closed and we had to children to entertain! We payed almost £40 to get in which was a little bit too much in my opinion. No rides for the children and a very short train ride which you have to pay an extra £1 per person for! Don't bother. The soft... More

We were a family group of 11 aged from 24 months to 67. We had a good day overall. The children liked the dinosaurs in the main square, which came to 'life' every hour, but be careful, they squirt you with water at the end of the show. The sea lion show was good, although not very long. We took... More

Had a brilliant day out with my fiancee and 3 year old son, loads of walking so flat shoes advised for the ladies. Loads to see and well worth the money.

We have been to this park with our boys aged 2 and 4 on a few occasions and parts of the park are brilliant but it then let's itself down in other areas. The food here is the worst I have experienced. it's not only expensive but borders on inedible.Don't eat here! The train ride is a good idea and... More

Went here last weekend with my husband, 2 children aged 11 and 4 and my mother. Have to agree that yes it is very hilly, although this is advertised. The only place my mum had a problem was the steep entrance hill, perhaps making half into steps or put a railing down the middle might help this. Onto the park,... More
