Dinosaurs in the Park | Heaton Park Manchester

19 July - 4 August

heaton park dinosaur event

Dinosaurs in the Park will be roaring into Heaton Park in Manchester this year.

Heaton Park Dinosaur Trail

Journey back in time to the prehistoric, where you will get to meet a different life-sized dinosaur at each twist and turn along our Dinosaur trail. 

Our 40 life-sized, realistic animatronic dinosaurs from the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods move their heads, jaws, and claws and hiss, snarl, and growl, to provide an exhilarating and truly immersive experience. We also offer quiet sessions for noise sensitive visitors – see our ticket link!

But please remember, don’t get too close to the dinosaurs, as they might bite!


After the trail make your way through to the exciting and educational Interactive-Zone.

  • Explore the Dino Trail and find the missing Palaeontologist’s tools
  • Discover a skeleton in our giant dig
  • Dino bouncy castle
  • Watch baby dinosaurs hatch
  • Watch our Dinosaur Dentist handle the T-Rex’s big teeth
  • Little ones can enjoy our Dino soft play (under 3’s only)
