Our Experience

We went to the event at the 11am spot and when we arrived we already saw a long queue outside the venue. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait for too long and could enter the place after a few minutes. The facilities are relatively small and so it was very crowded and busy with kids running around and parents trying to catch up with them. The dinosaurs are really cute and squishy and especially smaller kids are probably quite impressed by the roaring and moving dinosaurs.

As a parent, it’s rather hectic. There is a lot of noise, many people and long queues at the different activities. If you didn’t book the “All Inclusive Ticket”, you will have to pay extra for almost everything. The little playground, the dino train, dino rides and dino eggs are not for free and each activity costs an additional R30 per person. So it can become very expensive very quickly.

Overall, the kids were happy, but after an hour at the venue we’ve seen it all and were ready to go home again.

Tipp: Check your spam folder once you bought the tickets. All their emails ended up in my spam folder, but they also mention that on the website in case you’re wondering about the whereabouts of your tickets!

    • Hi Shinobia,

      we are not the organisers of this event, so we don’t have any additional information. But I assume that the exhibit is no longer ongoing as you cannot make any bookings online anymore.
