Jurassic Encounter Edinburgh

Jurassic Encounter opens in Edinburgh this summer Jurassic Encounter is a must-see family event, an interactive installation of 50 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs from the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods. Each dinosaur has robotic movements which include arms moving up and down, tails swaying side-to-side, heads moving up and down, eyes blinking, jaws opening wide with realistic roaring sound effects. Making for a truly awesome walk-through experience! This mesmerising experience is as educational as it is entertaining and the perfect day out for children and adults. Visitors will walk a perilous path through grasslands and woodlands and come face-to-face with snarling, roaring and hissing dinosaurs amongst the trees, bushes and woods.
