Visit the Dino Explorers activity carriage to take part in some archaeological digs and dinosaur themed activities. 

Our dinosaur trail will be taking place from 29th March to 14th April - Brunel needs to find all the baby dinosaurs that have decided to hatch at stations along the route of the line. Can you help Brunel find them by looking out of the window and writing down where he can find each baby? 

You can take part in our trail by purchasing an activity pack when booking your tickets. 

Pack includes: 

  • Dinosaur activity sheet 
  • Dinosaur Teddy 
  • Crayons

On completion of the activity sheet, a sticker congratulating you on finding all the baby dinosaurs will be given by the travelling ticket inspector.   

Activity pack price - £7.50 

Activity packs can be purchased on the day from the booking office or in advance through our website. 

Copies of the activity sheet can be purchased for £1 on the day from the booking office, upon completion of the trail a sticker will be provided by our travelling ticket inspectors.
