Europe's Largest Animatronic Dinosaurs Head To Bath Racecourse

Family Events

05 July 2019

Bath Racecourse is staging a family fun day with a difference this September as Europe’s largest and most realistic animatronic dinosaurs come to Bath on Sunday 15 September.

After being spotted at Doncaster Racecourse in June, the pre-historic giants are coming to Bath Racecourse as part of the track’s annual family fun day. A colossal adventure for the entire family to enjoy, the kids will be awestruck when they get to meet T-Rex, Raptors and baby dinosaurs. There will be ‘Ranger Training’ workshops taking place throughout the day, where kids will be guided through Jurassic knowledge and what to do in an emergency dinosaur break out situation. Plus, they’ll be tons of unique dinosaur photo opportunities, a Jurassic craft area, prehistoric face painting and even a giant egg to climb into!

Alongside the Jurassic fun, there’ll be seven exciting races, all offering the chance to experience the thrill of horse racing - plus the kids will love seeing the horses up-close in the Parade Ring before racing begins. 

Jo Hall, Executive Director of Bath Racecourse, said:

“We’re really looking forward to this brand-new Dino Family Raceday. It’s something a bit different and we think the kids will love meeting the dinosaurs and learning more about them. I know my little girl is super excited!”

As always, children under 18 get free entry and all the dino-themed entertainment is included in the ticket price. Early booking Grandstand Enclosure Tickets cost just £15 at the moment or you can snap up a Family Ticket Package for only £33 to include a few extras too.
