Dinosaur Ranger Adventure

Whats happening on the day? 

On the day of your visit, you will be welcome to arrive from 9.30am and stay with us for a day of Jurassic-tastic fun until we close at 5pm.

The time you select when making your booking is the time your train departs from Clayton West Station - don't be late or you might end up as T-Rex fodder!


You will be booked onto a specific train departure time which will transport you from Clayton West Station to Shelley Station where you'll complete a mini treasure hunt & have the opportunity to meet some dinky dinos.  You can spend as much time as you like at Shelley and return at your leisure.

At Clayton West Station, there'll be Dino Ranger School shows taking place at intervals during the day where you can learn dino wrangling & meet some more dinky dinos!

Plus, see below for more!
