Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, based in Lenwade, is opening Dippy’s Raceway this weekend and is inviting children to feel the wind in their hair as they race through the prehistoric track in diddy dino cars.

And for the first time in its history, it is also launching a new live outdoor performance which will show five times a day, every day, throughout August, and will feature disco dancing from park mascot Dippy, as well as animal encounters.

Adam Goymour, company director and park manager, said: “We can’t wait to welcome families across the UK and those who are enjoying their summer holidays to the park. Everyone is ready for some well-deserved, dino-filled fun and we look forward to welcoming families for a safe and enjoyable experience.
