Land of the Living Dinosaurs

See the UK’s largest animatronic Dinosaur attraction! Get ready to be transported back in time and see the story of the Dinosaurs unfold over millions of years…

  • The first area you will come to is a time just before the dinosaurs appeared. The three animals in the Permian period are not actually dinosaurs – they are mammal-like reptiles (synapsids).
  • Next is the beginning of the Mesozoic era where dinosaurs, mammals and flying reptiles first appear.
    Here you will find the eoraptor, which is widely regarded as the first ‘true’ dinosaur.
  • Widely known as the ‘Age of Reptiles’, the Jurassic period had creatures like the herbivorous stegosaurus, with its distinctive back plates and tail spikes and the mamenchisaurus with the longest neck compared to body of any dinosaur!
  • Some of the most recognisable dinosaurs you will meet lived during this period, including velociraptor, triceratops, spinosaurus and the infamous T-rex – one of the largest land predators of all time!

Ice Age at West Midlands Safari Park

Go on a prehistoric journey of life on Earth after the dinosaurs became extinct. Wander through an enormous rumbling volcano and pass through a huge atmospheric ice cave…


Boj’s Giggly Park

Bring your little ones to Boj’s Giggly Park, the multi-sensory play area where kids can explore and play in the five interactive zones, designed specifically for younger visitors!
