Jurassic World The Exhibition
When we heard about The Jurrasic world exhibition we couldn’t wait to check it out. Do you remember the first Jurassic Park movie? Did you sit back, and watch in awe, imagining what it would be like to there. With high expectations from the outset, for the immersive experience, these were well and truly exceeded. From the moment you step onto the boat, towards the Jurassic islands, the adventure begins. You soon arrive at Jurrasic World, with enormous gate, surrounded by lush trees. The first dinosaur you see stands tall and is rather impressive. There are baby dinosaurs that can be gently stroked. There’s fossils to be excavated and Dinosaur eggs to be marvelled over.

With “Dancing Queen” blaring, sparkling disco balls, smoke effects, and fairies flying, it really was special. As we got deeper into the woods, there were wonderful projections of animals to be marvelled over. The projections into the water fountains were absolutely stunning. With reindeers and Santa Claus amongst the fantastic projections, we loved standing back to watch this over the water in Windsor Great Park. Walking through the tunnel of flashing lights was surreal. The dazzling lights spiral and circle around you as you walk through. One of the best things about winter walks is the heartwarming food. We stopped to toast marshmallows and […]
