Nottinghamshire Goes Dinosaur Crazy

Tickets Go On Sale as Early Birds Snapped Up in Record Time

Dino Kingdom, Thoresby Park

15-31 October 2021

Tickets are being released on Friday 16 July for Nottinghamshire’s huge Dinosaur event coming this autumn after overwhelming demand saw the early birds snapped up in record time.

Dino Kingdom is now putting all tickets on general sale for its takeover of Thoresby Park following an incredible response to the news that 100 dinosaurs and other creatures, AR, Holographic and 3D mapping digital installations will be descending on the parkland located in the legendary Sherwood Forest.

Tickets are on sale here, from 11am Friday 16 July.

Dino Kingdom creator Ian Xiang said: “It seems Nottinghamshire is Dinosaur crazy! It’s great to see families and people of all ages welcoming the chance to see this majestic beasts up close. We can’t wait to see everyone there.”

Some typical reactions across social media:

“This looks amazing.”

“The kids will love it…and so will we!”

“Literally Jurassic Park.”

Coming from the creators of the award-winning Lightopia Festival, the event promises to bring dinosaurs all of sizes ‘back to life’. Animatronic models that move and roar including a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex and the even bigger Apatosaurus will take everyone on a Jurassic adventure. There will also be smaller dinosaurs to seek, including hatching babies.

There’s something to entertain everyone from fairground rides and fun dino performances to an excavation sand pit, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and a walk-through fossil tunnel. Adventurers can also take a well-earned break and refuel with the wide offering of food and drink options.

As an outdoor event with managed capacity of the ticketed timed slots, Dino Kingdom is an event that can give everyone a ‘roarsome’ time in line with any restrictions which may be in place this autumn.

Dino Kingdom Thoresby is coming for two weeks only from 15 to 31 October 2021 with pre-booked timed slots available every day. Advance tickets are priced at £15 for adults, £13 for children (under 3s are free) and £54 for a family ticket.
