FAMILIES can expect a half-price half term as ‘Fantasy February’ arrives at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure in Lenwade from Monday 18 February.
Children under the age of 16 are invited to dress up as their favourite fantasy character or dinosaur to get 50% off the gate admission, reducing the ticket price to £8.47.
The offer, which comes after the success of the park’s half term Halloween fancy dress promotion, will apply from 18 - 24 February.
Fairies, ogres, trolls, unicorns and dragons are just some of the costumes the adventure park is hoping to see throughout the week and prizes will be given to those dressed in the most impressive costume.
Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure will also be hosting daily workshops in partnership with the local charity Fairyland Trust, which aims to connect children and families with the magic of nature. The educational workshops, which cost £1 per child and last 15 minutes, will provide natural materials for children to make butterflies in the morning and ‘bug bling’ in the afternoon with the ‘Fairyland Fairy’ crew.
Ben Francis, park events manager at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure said: “We can’t wait to see what costumes children will be coming up with over February half term! It’s the perfect opportunity for families to come out of hibernation and release the energy that has been stored up over the festive period.
“February half term at Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure is set to be an adventurous, unique day out and inspires imagination. It is a great chance for families to spend quality time together during the holidays, with indoor and outdoor activities for children of all ages.”
The workshops will take place in Dippy’s indoor picnic space every 15 minutes and are aimed at children of any age. Guests can book on arrival, or purchase tickets from the Base Camp gift shop.
One of Norfolk’s most attractive villages, Great Massingham is located only thirteen miles east of Kings Lynn.
It has one of the most impressive greens in the country with several large ponds (home to the dabbling ducks!), which were originally fish ponds for an 11th century Augustian Abbey.
Stay at The Dabbling Duck and make sure you don’t miss the stunning nearby attractions.
Britains first Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole, was educated in the village before going on to build the breathtaking 18th century Palladian-style mansion, Houghton Hall nearby. It offers a wide range of museums, exhibitions and gardens to discover and is a ‘must-see’ destination for those interested in contemporary art and sculpture.
