Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure - A Honest Review

 If you have a dinosaur fan, Roarr! Dinosaur adventure is a must visit!

Based in Lenwade, Norfolk, Roarr is a massive dinosaur themed attraction that has something for everyone. 

opened in 2006 when the Goymour family took over and has expanded ever since. 

We first visited Roarr! in August 2021 when Harry was first starting to really get into dinosaurs. Harry was still quite unsteady and Covid was still quite prominent but the team at Roar handled it extremely well. There are lots of outside activates and things to see so we only needed to use our masks at the time when visiting Dippy's theatre and if we had chosen to go into Dinomite indoor play. Harry had a great day the first time and cried when we left. 

This year we went back on the day they opened their two new attractions, Valley of the Dinosaurs and Dippy's Exploration Adventure. 

Here are some of our pictures from Roarr!

Attractions at Roar! Dinosaur Adventure

Roar! has a great selection of attractions to suit all ages and preferences. There is only 2 things that we haven't done when visiting but I'm sure we will get round to them when we try next visit!

Dinomite Indoor Play - Roar!'s version of soft play. Harry was desperate to play on this and it was a great break. Its not very big and located in the café but for a quick 10 minute play to burn off some steam and let the grown ups have a quick cuppa its perfect. I'd never understood why places like this had soft play area's until Harry was big enough to use them. 

Days out with children can be very draining and its nice to let them have a bit of a play while the adults get a 5 minute sit down so I was very grateful to Dinomite!

Dippy's Theatre - Dippy's theatre was fab for us. We haven't been to watch some of the movies they show there, but we always make sure to catch the show with Dippy and his friends. On the days we've been its not been busy in the theatre and its a quiet space where we can have a sit down. The show it's self isn't very long but a perfect taster if you've never taken your children to a show or the cinema before. 

Dippy Live! - This always reminds me of kids hour at the club house on the caravan holidays we always used to go on as kids. Dippy comes out at certain times, you have a dance (did someone say party dances?) and then you have the opportunity to meet Dippy and get a photo. The atmosphere is always brilliant and when we visited this year Harry got to hug Dippy which made his whole day (obviously he couldn't in 2021 because of Covid)

Dippy's Raceway - These mini motorised cars are one on Harry's favourite parts of visiting Roarr! We have never quite trusted him not to crash enough to go on these alone and for some reason he always insists on me going with him but its great fun. 

Valley of the Dinosaurs - Roarr's new attraction which is an interactive dinosaur walk with anamatronic dinosaurs and a fun trail to follow

Dippy's Splash Zone - We've never visited the splash zone but it looks like great fun, especially when its a really hot day

Secret Animal Garden - When I say there is something for everyone at Roarr! there really is. A selection of animals, including a donkey, chickens and a pig. 

Predator High Ropes - Again we have never done this because Harry is just not there yet, but I can't wait until he is big enough for this, he will absolutely love it

X-Tinction - A huge sandpit with hidden fossils, what kid wouldn't love that?! Harry would spend all day here burying and finding the fossils again and again if we would let him. 

And that is not the end of it! See all of Roarr's attractions here: Roarr! Attractions

The only thing I would like to mention is there wasn't a great selection of food at Roarr, however they have both indoor and outdoor picnic areas so I would definitely recommend taking a picnic. 

Other than that, Roarr, for us at least is a great day out and somewhere Harry asks to visit again and again!

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
