COLOS­SAL di­nosaurs will be vis­it­ing London Zoo in July.

Vis­i­tors to the zoo will be taken back in time to a pre­his­toric world where they will come face-to-face with life­sized mov­ing di­nosaurs.

From the gi­ant but gen­tle bra­chiosaurus to the tow­er­ing tyran­nosaurus rex, the di­nosaurs will roar at those brave enough to ap­proach.

Zooras­sic Park will launch on Satur­day July 22, with the help of pop­u­lar CBee­bies pre­sen­ter Andy Day, and will be at London Zoo for six weeks. Vis­i­tors will take a trip via a time ma­chine to the Me­so­zoic era, where tour guides will help vis­i­tors spot dino-faves.

See the tricer­atops stand­ing guard over its nest, or en­counter the ar­mour-plated ed­mon­to­nia, a tank-like di­nosaur cov­ered in spikes.

Fam­i­lies will be given their own pass­ports for the time travel sa­fari and will learn all about the crea­tures, as well as the work con­ser­va­tion­ists are do­ing to help pre­vent to­day’s an­i­mals from be­com­ing ex­tinct.

There will be a fun trail for kids to com­plete, fos­sil digs to ex­plore and baby di­nosaurs to meet.

Nor­mal en­try charges for ZSL London Zoo ap­ply.

Un­der threes go free and you can save 10% by book­ing on­line. There is no ad­di­tional charge for en­ter­ing the Zooras­sic Park ex­pe­ri­ence.
