Open on Orange and Green Days

The Lost World Playbarn is a place where everyone can come and play in a cool, dinosaur-themed adventure playground (even the grown-ups)!

Join your little adventurers on a climb through the canopy to hide from the dinosaurs or try to spot the hidden helter-skelter. See how many dinosaurs you can spot and name; is it 5, 7 or 9? But be careful if you touch them, as we can’t promise they don’t bite! Explore slides and tubes and nets and for only the very bravest of explorers, we have the drop slide.

The Lost World Playbarn comes complete with a small cafe ( cafe closed at present). Click here for more details...

I love the dinosaur park, especially the drop slide and the dinosaurs are huge!
