THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS are about the get prehistoric as a dinosaur themed event is coming to Manchester this summer.

The epic outdoor event at Wythenshawe Park will feature more than 100 life-like, moving and roaring dinosaurs and creatures.

The team behind Lightopia, the award-winning light and lantern festival which came to Heaton Park, will be creating the 'epic’ outdoor event which features state-of-the-art 3D and AR technology.

It will feel like the dinosaurs have been brought back to life through 'unforgettable interactive experiences' and 'thrilling fairground rides'.

At the summer holiday event, you will meet and interact with more than 70 life-sized dinosaurs – including a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex and the biggest installation, the Apatosaurus towers which is 18 metres long.

It’s also an educational experience and perfect for the history and dinosaur-loving children in your life.

The event is also perfect for those budding palaeontologists out there, with an excavation sand pit, dinosaur eggs, fossils, volcanoes, a giant dinosaur skeleton head and a walk-through fossil tunnel.
