Travel back to a time when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Dinosaur Kingdom at Butterfly Creek is a prehistoric themed attraction featuring more than 50 dinosaurs, including huge, life size animatronics dinosaurs.

As you walk among the enormous herbivores and the fierce carnivores, you will meet a Triceratops mother about to protect her young from a T-Rex, beware the vicious Velociraptor and look up to the massive 24m Diplodocus.
