Dinosaurs invade Cornwall’s Eden Project

The Eden Project’s annual summer dinosaur event is bigger than ever this year, with underwater plesiosaurs and flying pterosaurs for the first time.

Dinosaur Uprising: Land, Sea and Air (July 23-September 4) also features a wandering pack of life-sized moving dinosaurs, including the tyrannosaurus rex and triceratops.

A long-necked titanosaur will offer an insight into the lives of the huge vegetarian sauropods, the largest animals ever to live on land.

Chris Pritchard, production manager at the Cornish attraction, said: “Dinosaur Uprising will be Eden’s most exciting summer programme ever and will offer an amazing insight into the world of prehistoric beasts, from land-based dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes to the giants of the ocean and the swarming, swooping pterosaurs.

“We have always had a great response to our summer dinosaur extravaganzas and we’re confident that this will be the biggest and best we’ve ever done.”

All activities are included in the standard Eden admission fee and opening hours will be extended until 8pm on Mondays to Thursdays during the season.
