Step Back in Time for Dinosaur Valley these School Holidays
Dinosaur Valley is now open at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains, bringing the ancient rainforest to life with prehistoric dinosaurs, daily interactive events and after-hours activities until January 28.
Accessed by the world’s steepest railway, visitors of all ages will enjoy stepping back in time with friendly Dinosaur Rangers to meet more than 20 prehistoric dinosaurs up close in their natural environment.
Catch a T-rex in action, see a migrating triceratops family make their way through the valley, and meet knowledgeable Dino Rangers who love nothing more than sharing fun facts with visitors from near and far.
Ringo the Raptor and Barbara the baby triceratops will make a guest appearance during interactive ‘Meet and Roar’ events and the kids will enjoy interacting with their favourite dinosaurs with a free Junior Ranger Trail Guide.
Free movie nights and after-hours events will also provide the perfect excuse to plan a weekend getaway, with a range of exclusive accommodation packages available at leading hotels and resorts.
Scenic World’s Events Manager Alana Silk said Dinosaur Valley was a fun and engaging way for visitors to disconnect from their devices and explore nature in new ways this summer.
“Dinosaur Valley is a natural fit for our Jurassic rainforest setting that taps into our fascination for prehistoric creatures in creative ways,” she said. “It’s the perfect environment for kids to engage with their favourite dinosaurs and for visitors of all ages to feel small again among the towering ancient rainforest.”
Guests will also learn about local flora and fauna, with more than 20 knowledgeable Dinosaur Rangers on hand to share fun facts about the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains.
“Education is a key component of Dinosaur Valley to highlight the fragility of our pristine environment and the need to consider our environmental impact into the future,” Scenic World’s Chief Experience Officer Amanda Byrne added.
Dinosaur Valley is free with entry to Scenic World and online earlybird specials apply for entry before 10am during the school holidays. Tickets are priced from $39 for adults, $21 for children under 14 years and $99 for a family pass including entry for two adults and up to five children.
Visitors can also upgrade to a Scenic World Annual Pass for unlimited entry to annual events including Sculpture at Scenic World which will be held from April 12 – May 12, 2019.
Get in before Dinosaur Valley dies out on January 28.
