They’re big, they’re fierce, and they’re back!
This summer, after four years away, the award-winning dinosaurs return to Chester Zoo.
Allow yourself to be transported on an exhilarating journey back to the Jurassic age when these gigantic creatures roamed and ruled the earth. Walk amongst the predators and their prey, but beware as you don’t know what is lurking around the next corner.
This is the largest and most fearsome collection of dinosaurs so far! Witness the Giganotosaurus, one of the biggest carnivores of all, watch the Utahraptor with his curved claws and feathery limbs; and don’t forget about the plant eating Brachiosaurus known as the gentle giant.
