This post is brought to you by Jurassic Creatures and Common Chaos Chronicle.
The Jurassic Creatures Interactive Walkthrough has finally landed at the Dockland’s Harbourtown, just in time for these upcoming school holidays and we were lucky enough to preview it in all it’s glory first thing this morning. We had a roaring good time and here’s what you need to know to make your prehistoric adventure a fantastic one too!
What is it?
Jurassic Creatures, featuring Prehistoric Creatures of the Ice is an interactive walkthrough of animatronic Dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes, plus Mammoths and many many more Ice age creatures too.
Where is it?
The big top tent which is home to Jurassic Creatures is situated in Harbour Town, adjacent to the Melbourne Star and across the road from the ice skating rink. You really can’t miss it, and there was ample directions pointing towards parking too. We parked in the shopping centre car park and it cost us a reasonable $7.00. For more information about getting to the event, including public transport, check out the details HERE.
How much does it cost?
There are heaps of different ticketing options available through Ticketmaster.
Children (2-12): $22
If you’re after a family pass or a VIP Pass, they have them too. Simply follow the link HERE to find out more information about tickets, session times and availabilities.
- Except for a few little rides, it is all undercover in a giant big-top tent which means it doesn’t matter if it rains!
- It’s also fenced off so the kids are pretty contained should you have a tribe like ours. 😉
- Your Dino crazy kiddies will LOVE it.
- Plenty of activities including rides, Dinosaur Train Live Show, Jumping Castle, Sand Art, Fossil Digging and more.
- 2.5hours is plenty of time to have a go of everything.
- Best suited to younger kids, although the older ones will love the actual Jurassic Creatures displays and reading the fact cards about all the different creatures.
- Fantastic learning experience.
- Take your camera, the photo opportunities are endless.
- Suits boys and girls, old and young alike!
- You can buy food, drink and merchandise there at ‘carnival-type’ prices.
- It’s in a big tent which gets pretty warm once the sun is out. Be sure to hang out near the giant air con units and outside near the rides if it gets too warm for you.
- The noise. If your child is sensitive to loud sounds, please pre-warn them and let them know that their favourite Dinosaurs were most definitely NOT quiet creatures! 😉
- You can buy food, drink and merchandise there at ‘carnival-type’ prices. Hahaha!
We really had a great time at Jurassic Creatures with our 3 boys this morning, it was a shame we only had 3 of the 6 kids with us really!
When asked what their favourite parts were they said:
Jai (11) – The Dinosaurs and the Woolly Mammoth and the Sand Art.
Levi (6) – EVERYTHING!!!
Elijah (3) – The rides and Buddy from Dinosaur Train.
If you’re looking for something to do these coming school holidays Jurassic Creatures is open from March 12 – April 17th 2016.
