The latest addition to the 85-acre park and woodland, which is located in Lenwade, opens on Saturday, August 1 and it features Dippy-themed electric cars, who is the Roarr! mascot, and children can race around a prehistoric track.

Spectators are also able to watch from the sidelines and there is a brand new podium for the top three racers.

The opening comes as the park gears up for a summer of fun with five outdoor shows every day between 10.30am and 3.30pm, featuring disco dancing from Dippy and animal encounters.

There will also be evening events throughout August, starting with The JRB on August 8, formerly The Joe Ringer Band, and they will play songs from the 60s to modern-day chart hits.
