Yes, that’s right. There is a Dinosaur Park in Dubai! Not only that, it’s covered in the AED 60 cover charge for Dubai Garden Glow!
Now, I have to confess that I really was a bit disheartened when I heard there was a dinosaur exhibit at the park. I don’t think even when I was doing that bit at school I had much interest. I still don’t now. At all.
Mum however was really quite excited because a) she is still a teacher at heart, and b) my darling niece (her much adored granddaughter!!) is inexplicably obsessed with dinosaurs! Because Mum was so excited by it, it kind of rubbed off a little but I was still happily the photographer while she went around doing the learning bit.
And learn she did! There were so many that she didn’t know about! Harry could have yet another bucket of dinosaurs if the author wants to do more in the series!!!
First was this cute little dude:
Then things got a bit exciting:
After that, it was giant dino after giant dino…
I took this video for my niece as the T-Rex is her favourite!
So that was that. It was quite amusing really, and not quite as boring as I had feared. What was really lovely though is to see how excited the kids were, and how many of the little ones thought the dinosaurs were real. That was probably my highlight. I loved the innocence.
Oh wait… no… my favourite was the rude woman who had been pushy and obnoxious all the way from the queue to buy tickets onward, jumping out of her skin and screaming when one of the exhibits ‘came to life’. Stupid mare.
I do have a mini confession before I finish this post though; I literally knew which the T-Rex, the Pterodactyl (yep… had to google the spelling!) and the Volociraptor were. That’s it. Aside from the “tri-thingie one” which is obvs it’s real name, of course! The reason I have managed to put any info with this posts photos is that I found a great little list of the dinosaurs exhibited on the park’s website!!
As an aside, click here to see why Volociraptor’s make terrible pets!!!
