Jurassic Take-Over Day

22 October @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

£10 – £13

Jurassic Take-Over Day is coming to the Utilita Arena for the first time this October! For ONE day only come and experience a unique dinosaur adventure as the arena hosts the first ever interactive walkthrough and BIGGEST dinosaur event in the North East!

Come and visit state-of-the-art animatronic life-like dinosaurs in this brand new, immersive experience for all audiences. This is an unmissable opportunity to talk to a Triceratops, look up to a Brontosaurus, roar with a T-Rex, scream with a Spinosaurus and run from a Raptor!

You’ll have the opportunity to train as a Ranger, watch specially produced shows in our dinosaur paddocks, learn about the baby dinosaurs in the Hatchery, and so much more with this unique and brand new Jurassic experience.
We have three 90-minute sessions throughout the day at 11:30am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm to ensure that children and adults get the best experience possible and that everyone is able to see, hear and interact with all of the shows and activities that will be on throughout the 90 minute experience.

All proceeds made from this event will go to supporting the Charlie Gard Foundation, so families making wonderful and precious memories at this event will allow us to raise funds that will in turn allow the Charlie Gard Foundation to offer wonderful memories to families affected by the life-limiting condition that is mitochondrial disease.
