Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom

By | Category: Travel news

In just over five weeks there will be the opening of  Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom, a brand-new, prehistoric, outdoor family attraction with what the organisers think are the sights and sounds of the Ice Age. There will be forty, animatronic prehistoric beasts that were last seen alive some 70,000 years ago. The life-size creatures, including mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers and giant sloths have moving body parts, wide opening jaws and realistic sound effects to really bring the experience to life.

Obvious such an attraction is part educational and part entertainment but what child (or adult fr that matter) isn’t a little interested in prehistoric animals? Combine that with animatronics and the organisers should be onto a winner.

A big appeal of this attraction is that you don’t necessarily have to travel to London to see it. It does start its tour in London – in Gunnersbury Park where it will be located from the 6th of April until the 28th.  Only Wales and Northern Ireland miss out on the extravaganza. Other locations are;

25 May – 9 June                         Birmingham, Birmingham Botanical Gardens

22 June – 14 July                        Glasgow, Rouken Glen Park

27 July – 11 August                    Manchester, Heaton Park

25 August – 8 September            Nottingham, Wollaton Park

19 October – 3 November           Leeds, Temple Newsam Park

At each location, there will be a variety of street food outlets will be available at all locations, together with a mini-cinema marquee showing an educational Ice Age documentary, a fossil excavation pit for children to unearth skeletons and a merchandise trailer for souvenirs.

Tickets have been on sale for a while a few weeks but the early bird discounts end on the 28th of February. That saves 20% off the price provided you use the code EARLYBIRD20.
