Dinosaurs Unleashed from 18th February

Grab a piece of prehistory in London next month with the start of the Dinosaurs Unleashed experience at the O2 arena.  A chance to see Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops on the banks of the Thames, plus a total of 22 animatronic prehistoric animals in a unique visitor experience.

Dinosaurs Unleashed

Get up close to some of the most iconic and awesome creatures that ever walked on the Earth, or swam in the sea, or flew in the air for that matter.  Team members at Everything Dinosaur have had the chance to peruse the fantastic exhibits, personal favourites amongst our staff were the tusked, Triassic Placerias and the huge Megalosaurus plus of course the CGI aquarium that brought back to life the Jurassic marine environment with its ferocious and awe-inspiring marine reptiles.  These were just some of the exciting and amazing animatronic animals on display the last time we visited this exhibition.

One of the really great things about the Dinosaurs Unleashed exhibition is the attention to detail on the models, they really are amazing and give you the chance to see the latest scientific reconstructions of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures.  It is only once you have stood alongside a Stegosaurus, like the one in the picture above, that you really appreciate just how big some of these dinosaurs were.

For further details on the Dinosaurs Unleashed exhibition at the O2 arena and for ticket information regarding dinosaur events check out the Everything Dinosaur blog.

There are something like 40 interactive and educational panels providing lots and lots of information about the latest dinosaur discoveries, where they lived, what they hunted and how they evolved.

The animatronic dinosaurs can be a bit scary for very young children, but parents need not worry too much, as the young palaeontologists soon get the idea that these monsters are not going to hurt them.  We loved watching children roaring back at the big Tyrannosaurus rex and trying to avoid catching his watchful gaze.  Lots of information available on the prehistoric animals featured and a great deal of care has been taken by the organisers to pack as much educational information and material into the exhibition as possible.

Dinosaurs Unleashed opens its doors on February 18th, just in time for the half-term school break, and for dinosaur fans from two years of age to those of us considered to be “old fossils”, this exhibition would make a super day out.
