The Dinosaur Park, Tenby – A Fantastic Family Day Out

 

We were lucky enough to be invited to visit The Dinosaur Park Tenby. It was a rather long way to travel for us, however my little boy is Dinosaur mad, so we decided it was worth the trip.About 2 hours into our Journey, it started pooring down with rain.. just our luck. We were only about a hour away though and decided we’d brave the rain and go anyway.

The Dinosaur Trail

The first thing we decided to do when we entered the park was go on the ever so famous Dinosaur Trail. The Dinosaur Trail is set in a forest like area.. with lots of trees and wonderful scenery to look at whilst you take your walk. Along the way there’s a variety of different Dinosaur models to look at, enjoy and take pictures of/with. The Models were really well made, me and my partner were both impressed, the odd dinosaur as well even has noise effects to go with it, the kids shied away from going from one or two of them along the trail. As you come to see each Dinosaur you’ll notice a information board with the Dinosaurs name and some facts about that particular Dinosaur, we loved this little added extra and found it very educational for the little ones.

Adventure Play

Luckily for us The Dinosaur Park has a fantastic Indoor Play area called Dino’s Den. We were very thankful for it seeing as it was sadly raining when we visited.

Inside Dino’s Den there was loads to do, there’s a small soft play section for under 4’s, A larger soft play section for over 4’s or small kids that are brave enough and a huge wooden play section for the Older kids. Theres also a small slide and a sectioned of area with a play kitchen in and some toys for babies.

The kids Loved being able to run around and be independent and the majority of it is enclosed which means mummy and daddy got to sit down and relax for a bit. My little ones especially liked the yellow twist slide with the ball pit at the bottom of it.

 

 

OTHER THINGS TO DO

The park is wonderful place for kids to go exploring. There’s so much to do around the park, as it was raining we were kind of limited, but we tried our best to make the most of it.

We were invited to take part in there Fossil Activity, where the kids are taken to dig for dinosaur fossils. Upon entering the room the kids were given a tray each and then taken out the back to the Dino Dig area, the lady in charge explained what they had to do and showed them pictures of what the fossils looked liked that they were digging for. She then helped them as they dug for fossil pieces, it was a really lovely activity and the kids really enjoyed it. After the kids had collected enough fossils they were then taken back inside to look at what fossils they had collected, and were each allowed to choose a piece to take home with them.

As well as the Fossil Activity there was also the opportunity for the kids to ride a Dinosaur called Ting Ting for the small price of a £1,which we just had to do. My little boy sadly wasn’t up for it when it came to getting on the dinosaur but my little girl was more than happy to have a go. We weren’t really unsure what to expect, we kind of thought it was just stay still maybe make some noises and move its eyes or something. However we were happily suprised when it started to walk, Yup you heard me walk!! My little girl got to sit on top of the Dinosaur and hold on to the handles whilst the dinosaur walked around, and made the occasional Roaring sound. It really was fantastic to watch, if only we could have one at home.



Something I sadly didn’t get to mention about, was the Outdoor play section. Which looked amazing however like I said because it was raining rather heavily, we didn’t get to experience everything that The Dinosaur Park had to offer. Mummy did brave it a little though and took our little boy on some of the rides outside. The rides I was really impressed with unlike some other parks we’ve visited previously where you pay your entry and then have to pay for some rides on top, all the rides were either free to use or cost 2p.. which was great value and a awesome way to get rid of those coppers you have lying around.

Overall though we had a fantastic day at The Dinosaur Park Tenby and would highly recommend visiting. It really does make for a Fun Family day out and we’d love to return in the future, maybe when its a bit sunnier though.

    What a lovely little place! I love finding places like this that aren't so commercialised and 2p for a ride?! Amazing! Legoland near us is just disgusting for extras – stuff around every corner. And it's expensive to get in.
    Glad you had a lovely day despite the rain!
