My last visits to the park were in 1993,2004 and although I was only 9 the first time, the attractions have slowly dwindled in to just a leisure centre with a new rugby stadium (impressive btw)
1993 I remembered dinosaur world which was fantastic, although there was the whole "Land Before Time" film craze that happened around that time also the kids TV show "Denver Last Dinosaur", the world's interest in dinosaurs slowed down and I was not surprised in my 2004 visit that the attraction unfortunately closed a year earleir. Bordered up in 2004, the area has now been re opened (2011) and the foundations where the dino models stood can easily be seen.
Now a childrens activity area, which is very good as various types of hand weaving has been done with sticks and a very attractive butterfly shaped grid over the little eco pond.
Please be cautious as this area is a bit cut off from the park and there are the old dinosaur world entrance buildings that can provide cover for any anti social . On my visit this area was very quiet.
Gone are the boats on the pond too.
Places in life always change eventually, sometimes not for the better..... but will deffinatley come back to colwyn bay as the waterfront project will really give the area a boost it needs
