What will my journey be like?

Your Dinosaurs in the Wild experience promises to take you on the ultimate journey of discovery – your destination, the late Cretaceous! 

If you’ve ever wondered what life was like 67 million years ago, you’re about to go there in person and find out for yourself.

Leave the 21st Century behind, jump back 67 million years in time to the Late Cretaceous and see living dinosaurs as never before! 

You’ll be going on the ultimate voyage of discovery – your destination, TimeBase 67, our extraordinary research station in the deep past where our brave scientists frequently risk their lives as they study dinosaurs.

If you think you know what these magnificent creatures look like, think again. When you see dinosaurs in the wild with your very own eyes, you’ll be amazed by just how different they look. Some of them possess feathers, manes and vivid markings, for instance.

Here are some highlights of the unforgettable things you’ll experience on your journey…

 

 


Highlights of your journey

Take a trip in Chronotex’s time machine to TimeBase 67

Enter our departure lounge, where you’ll be greeted by staff from Chronotex, the pioneering company that discovered time travel and built TimeBase 67 to study dinosaurs while they were still alive.

Since time travel waits for no one, our motion sickness-proof X90 Transfer Pods depart according to a strict schedule – following a safety briefing on the potential dangers of prehistoric travel (our visitor survival rate is almost perfect), you’ll travel back 67 million years in the blink of an eye, to the Late Cretaceous Period.

On the way, get a taste of the truly awesome world of dinosaurs that awaits

Once the time machine has docked, it converts to a rugged land vehicle that will securely transport you on the drive of your life, across the hazardous Cretaceous plains, where you might see some of the awesome animals we’ve sighted recently, like Triceratops or Alamosaurus.

Prehistoric life can, of course, be very unpredictable, so if we do encounter any unscheduled animals on your journey – particularly the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus – we’ll keep a close eye on their movements and any escalating situations, as your safety is our number one priority, at all times.

Enter TimeBase 67 via our reception area

Upon arrival at the totally secure TimeBase 67, you’ll disembark at the reception area, where you’ll discover more about the TimeBase and the amazing sights you’re going to experience.

One of our expert guides will then take you through to our cutting-edge research laboratories, where scientists now study living dinosaurs.

Next, get ‘hands on’ in a lab then witness a dinosaur autopsy…

In our Path Lab, discover some truly fascinating dinosaur facts as you explore and get ‘hands on’ with some of the impressive research our scientists are conducting into dangerous dinosaurs – get up close to a huge Alamosaurus heart, interact with some eyeballs, teeth and claws, even discover what’s in dinosaur poo!

Then, moving on to our Autopsy Lab, you’ll experience a Pachycephalosaurus being dissected and see the internal parts of this massive creature.

… before you visit our Hatchery

The three incubators in The Hatchery hold different species of dinosaur eggs, all ethically sourced from outside TimeBase 67 – here you’ll learn about the variety of egg shapes, growth stages and the laying patterns of dinosaurs.

As you move around the room, you’ll be amazed by the incredible things you see – baby Triceratops squirming inside their shells, eggs communicating with each other and some deceptively cute fuzzy Dakotaraptor hatchlings.

Then it’s on to the Animal Lab…

Our Animal Lab is divided into nocturnal and daytime areas, and in it you’ll see juveniles from species such as Leptoceratops, Acheroraptor or Ankylosaurus that were hatched at the TimeBase and that our scientists are now studying.

They’re all safely caged, but, as with anything to do with dinosaur tourism, please do be alert at all times in here and keep your fingers away from the bars, as some of these animals are extremely aggressive – and almost always hungry!

… before you end up at our amazing Lookout

For your visit to TimeBase 67, we’ve saved the best for last – The Lookout is a hugely impressive space, with panoramic windows offering breath-taking views of the prehistoric life teeming on the Cretaceous plains outside.

Recently, our scientists have been recording higher than normal instances of animal activity, so you never know, you might even get eyeballed by a very large – and very angry – T. rex!  

After this truly memorable and mesmerising experience, we’ll transport you to our time machine and get you back safely to the present day – unless any unforeseen perilous circumstances arise, of course…
