The UK’s first net zero carbon theme park will arrive to Southport Pleasureland in the near future.

The dinosaur themed park will be home to various dinosaur related attractions and exhibitions from life-size replica dinosaurs, a Virtual Reality dinosaur experience, ranger guided tours, a walk-through exhibition, a dinosaur dig and interactive displays.

Southport Pleasureland’s CEO Norman Wallis takes up the story of the introduction of the environmentally-friendly minded area: (Words from Liverpool Echo) “I am very pleased to share our plans for this exciting new dinosaur park attraction in Southport.

“Our Dinosaur Park is aimed at children and adults of all age groups, combining fun and entertainment with education – ‘edutainment’. It will also attract visitors to Southport all year-round and expand the demographic of visitors to the town.”

Norman stressed the importance of preserving the future of Southport and the new park being its new driver: “We are doing all we can to help the town become a non-seasonal resort, and this new attraction will be pivotal in making that happen. We want to ensure that Southport doesn’t go extinct like the dinosaurs did! And to work in partnership with other hospitality and retail businesses both established and new to bring more visitors to the town and the wider area. The new dinosaur park will provide a substantial boost to Sefton’s tourism sector and the local economy.”

Norman also highlighted how vital climate control is to regulate and how the Dinosaur Park will outline this, Norman commented: “I’m fully supportive of Sefton Council’s ambitions, outlined in their Climate Change Emergency Implementation Plan promise. We aim to mirror their environmental ambitions and sustainability best practice targets. We will work together to regenerate our town and the wider city region.”
