Jurassic Park Gisborne

Amazing Dinosaur Discovery an interactive experience.

An Amazing Dinosaur Discovery interactive experience was being set up yesterday on the old St Mary's School site on Childers Road.

The show will run for the next four weekends from tomorrow.

Spokeswoman Jeni Hou said there would be more than 30 life-size dinosaurs there.

“They can move and they can roam — the most realistic dinosaurs in the world from the same manufacturer who made the Jurassic (Park/World movie) creatures.”

The show has travelled from the US to New Zealand, visiting all the major cities and towns.

“It's a unique experience for the children and families to meet with these famous dinosaurs.”

Ms Hou said most people's favourite was the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

A 12-metre neck of the giant Brachiosaurus and robotic raptors are among some of the other highlights.
