We visited the Dino Park in Milton Keynes during the Easter holidays, just after lockdown had ended.
It’s really cool looking at all the dinosaurs and imagining how big they were in real life. The boat ride is really good fun too. You can spot all the different dinosaurs as you go by.
My favourite bit of this park isn’t actually the dinosaurs at all, it’s the small animal farm that’s part of it! You can see all the different animals, such as alpacas, guinea pigs, rabbits, budgies, and wild turkeys – their gobbles are very loud and made me jump at first! The Insect Island here is also really cool – it has massive models of bugs that move.
We had a lot of fun. However, things like the playgrounds are really meant for kids smaller than me – some of it felt a bit babyish.
We’ve been to the Dino Park several times over the years. It’s an enjoyable day out and doesn’t bust the bank either – admission is £8.50 each.
A few of the attractions weren’t open due to COVID-19, including the reptile house and triceratops ride. However we still ended up staying around five hours, making full use of the rides, going around the park a few times, and spending a fair bit of time in the playground areas too.
One thing to note is that all children three and over are expected to wear a face mask on rides – if your kids are anything like our Eloise (aged four), this doesn’t make things too easy!
