The Big Dinosaur Show to roar in to Bracknell Forest

16 May 2014

Youngsters can have a roaring good time helping The Look Out Discovery Centre's herd of Brachiosaurus survive a number of dangerous challenges from this weekend.

The Look Out is launching its Big Dinosaur Show on Saturday (May 17) which will provide children with an exciting and interactive look at how dinosaurs lived.

Amongst other things, the 30 minute show will encourage children to:

  • Find out what the breath of a T-Rex smelt like
  • Find out how much excrement the biggest dinosaurs would have made
  • Find out how good a T-Rex's sense of smell would have been.

The show will run every weekend and during Bracknell Forest school holidays until September 1, 2014. It will run at 11am, noon, 2pm and 3.15pm (subject to minimum numbers).

Cllr Iain McCracken, executive member for culture, corporate services and public protection, said: "The Look Out Discovery Centre always provides a fun-filled and educational experience for youngsters and the Big Dinosaur Show certainly promises to be exciting.

"Dinosaurs always prove very popular with children and this show will be explaining some of the history and science behind these captivating creatures."

Show entry costs just £1.85 per person in addition to the main admission price to the hands-on science and nature exhibition.

Visiting The Look Out is a great day out, with the main attraction being the hands-on science exhibition which has over 90 hands-on activities. There is also a gift shop, coffee shop and adventure play area. The centre is set in 1,000 hectares of woodland which is owned and managed by The Crown Estate. The Look Out Discovery Centre is open every day from 10am to 5pm (except for December 24, 25, 26). There is parking for cars and coaches available 7am to 8.30pm from April to September and 7am to 6pm from October to March. Car parking charges apply.
