ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure, the family-owned adventure park in Norfolk, has submitted a planning application for the biggest expansion in the theme park’s history.

The expansion will be delivered in three phases. Phase one will include the installation of a vertical volcano themed ride, teacup rides, a high play den, two jumping pillows and several interactive play concepts. The first development will also feature food and drink outlets, retail and an entranceway with a Jurassic theme.

The attractions will be enclosed in a landscape of grassland, trees and planting, designed to enhance the biodiversity and ecological management of the area.

Adam Goymour, director at ROARR! said: This project has been three years in the planning, and we are hugely excited to finally submit the full extent of our ambitious expansion, which is designed to provide gentle and exhilarating play opportunities for children up to the age of ten.

“We know how valuable parks like ROARR! are for encouraging families to spend precious time together, and that this has a positive and lasting effect on children’s confidence, development and self-esteem. The park has always provided a backdrop for fun and play, and these new features within this area of the park, are really going to bring an exciting experience to ROARR!’s many fans and visitors.”

“We are determined that ROARR! will become a UK-wide destination and these plans highlight our commitment and significant investment in the business as well as Norfolk’s thriving and healthy visitor economy.

“We are working with a first-class team of designers and consultants to bring this project to fruition, and the whole team is looking forward to seeing the results of the extensive work which has gone into the project so far,” Goymour continued.

Plans to extend the 85-acre park have been submitted to Broadland District Council and will be considered by the planning committee.
