There's a real-life Jurassic Park opening in the UK this summer

Hold on to your butts!

Netflix and nintendo can get a bit old & boring after a while, so if you're looking for a new and very cool date idea, look no further a real-life dinosaur theme park named 'Dinosaurs In The Wild' is opening in the UK this june.

The park's creative director Tim Haine famously worked on the classic BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs which taught us all about our favourite dinos back in the '90s.

Dinosaurs In The Wild is described as a “70-minute experience that combines dramatic storytelling, scripted actors, and high-end digital graphics and animatronics to create a believable prehistoric world”.

The creators promise that visitors will enjoy an “immersive adventure” mixing theatre, theme park-style fun and palaeontological knowledge. They say it will be “like going on the greatest safari”.

Check out a teaser video below.

There'll be nine dinosaurs on show including the terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex, the Triceratops, the Alamosaurus and the Ankylosaurus.

Visitors will be able to use VR to find out what it was like to see through a dinosaur’s eyes. They will also be able to test their arm strength in comparison to a Tyrannosaurus rex.

And can also research examples of dinosaur teeth and dinosaur tissues such as a full dinosaur arm.

Producer Jill Bryant says of the experience:

“We were keen to create something new that raised the bar for live action experiences and we’re confident Dinosaurs in the Wild will do just that. This is a new dinosaur experience of unparalleled reality, where visitors will encounter these animals and their world in ways they have never seen before.”

Dinosaurs In The Wild will run at Birmingham’s NEC Arena from June 24 to August 24 and after will in Manchester from October.
