Xscape goes Jurassic this Summer

Date Posted:19/07/2016

Xscape dinosaurThis Summer holiday, Xscape are going Jurassic for 6 weeks of prehistoric fun. From Friday 22nd July - Sunday 4th September, Xscape visitors will be able to enjoy free family entertainment and events in the Dino experience. The event, which is open every day from 12-6pm includes a wide range of activities including a "Dig and Dust" experience, where young explorers can don a Safari suit, dig for prehistoric ruins and then get their hands dirty making clay models of the bones they find. Or, if you'd rather sit back and be entertained, our Dino Rangers will be presenting storytelling and puppet shows throughout the day. The whole family will fall in love with our dinosaur characters - make sure you stick around to hear all of their adventures!

As well as the scarily lifelike dinosaurs that have taken up residence inside and outside of Xscape, the fun gets knocked up a gear when we'll be visited by a walking, roaring (and we are fairly sure, actually real) T-Rex, who will be roaming around Xscape and putting on a show like no other on set weekends. (See website for full dates and times of live shows). All children visiting the event will leave with giveaways in hand and a smile on their face!

It's not all dinosaurs - this Summer, Xscape are offering more great events and entertainment than ever before. On Saturday 30th July, world record keepy-uppy champion, Milton Keynes' own Dan Magness will be in Xscape running ball skills workshops and other great interactive footy games for the whole family. Can you beat the champ?!

There's also a chance for YOU to become an official Guinness World Record holder, as the world records team will taking over Xscape for the day on Saturday 13th August. They'll be bringing all the gear for you to step up and have a go at breaking a record - you'll get a certificate and appear in the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records! (Unless someone else beats you, of course!).

All that plus lots more events, activities and surprises taking place all summer long. For continuing information, follow @XscapeMK on Facebook and Twitter. Don't forget, all of that is just the icing on the cake - Xscape is the UK's leading family visitor attraction, home to real indoor snow slopes, indoor skydiving, 4DX and Superscreen cinema and indoor rock climbing. You can also get your kicks in a more laid back way with some retail therapy in our range of top branded shops, and grab a bite to eat in one of our cafes, bars and restaurants. There really is everything under one roof - and this Summer, it's not just awesome - it's ROARSOME as Xscape Goes Jurassic!

DID YOU KNOW: You can spectate and watch all of the high adrenaline activities in Xscape FREE OF CHARGE - there is a tunnel-side viewing gallery in Airkix, and a bustling café and bar overlooking the slopes at Snozone.
