Elsa and Cleo have been waiting for this day for 6 months now, we finally had a family day out at a local attraction!
We visited Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure in Lenwade near Norwich. This isn’t our first visit, we have visited the dinosaur park so many times that the kids know it like the back of their hand now! It is one of our go to places in Norfolk and this is our first day out since lockdown so I was a little bit hesitant. I didn’t know what to expect or how people would be at a busy place such as Roarr.
Roarr! is currently pre book only and this is really important to remember. You have to enter at a set time so booking is important. You also have to book to go in to Dippy’s Splash Zone but you do that when you enter the park. There was actually nothing to worry about. After a little while, it did start to get busy and we found the dinosaur trail to be the busiest part of the park. We kept to our little bubble and kept 2m from everyone where possible.
As we were worried before going we decided to take my 10 year old sister instead of Brody. I think it would have been ok for him to be there but he is slightly too young to enjoy Roarr!
As for what was opened and closed. Slides seemed to be closed and the indoor play areas were also shut which is understandable. Splash zone was open but again the slide was closed. Predator high robes were open and running at limited numbers and there were hand sanitising points all over the park which was great. The park is also one way to make it easier to stay 2m apart. The stamp trail is also not on at the moment but you can collect a medal at the end of your visit from the exit.
The biggest change is the new additions. Dippy is now doing regular shows on the stage near the maze and there is a new outdoor go-karting track close to the play area. This is free and we saw them wiping the karts down after every ride which was amazing!
Roarr! has changed to ensure families that they can have a safe day out and that they can still enjoy themselves even in a time like this.
