Visitors to Lanark this summer are guaranteed a close encounter of a very frightening kind when they are invited to take a walk in the footsteps of giants. Lanark town centre and New Lanark World Heritage Site will be alive with clawing, roaring, breathing dinosaurs as the Jurassic Lanark family trail returns with lots of new attractions.
Discover Lanark is proud to be working in partnership with event sponsors Border Biscuits to bring even more exciting dinosaur displays to the town, giving visitors the chance to come face-to-face with some of the most fearsome creatures ever to roam the planet.
Jurassic Lanark 2022 will see a host of new attractions with an additional four animatronic dinosaurs including a spectacular Spinosaurus, a vicious Allosaurus grappling with two fierce Raptors, and a beady-eyed Pterosaur protecting its hatching eggs.
Two new baby puppet dinosaurs, a T.Rex and Brachiosaurus, will be out and about in the town centre with their handlers every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday to interact with visitors brave enough to come up close.
Jurassic Lanark is an exciting and spectacular free family trail. Participants are invited to find the 25 life size dinosaurs, completing their trail map and claiming their Jurassic Lanark survivors badge. Proof that they have lived to tell the tale.
Graeme McLeish, Chair of Discover Lanark, said, “We’re excited to be able to build on last year’s success with many new attractions and once again offer a high quality no cost family day out – Border’s sponsorship has allowed us to keep the event free which is especially important in a year where family finances are under increased pressure”.
Jurassic Lanark launches on Friday 24 June and runs from 10am to 5pm daily throughout the school holidays until Sunday 14 August. Trail maps and programmes will be available from Tolbooth Lanark in the town centre and New Lanark Gift Shop.
