AboutAs part of Longleat's celebration of the wonderful and weird world of predators, they're inviting you to get up close and personal with the most famous prehistoric beast of them all. On the 24th May, the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex is coming to the Park!
Unravel an ancient mystery, millions of years in the making and tackle a curious conundrum; was the fearsome T. rex perfectly adapted for the hunt or better suited to scavenging a kill?
T.rex: The Killer Question (all the way from the world famous Natural History Museum), is a prehistoric installation of epic proportions; eight animatronic dinosaur models and static scenes will take you on a journey of discovery – all under one roof.
An Edmontosaurus mother with her nest of duck-billed hatchlings, an armoured ankylosaur being preyed upon, and a towering T. rex skeleton cast, all feature in this astonishing exhibit.
Get hands on with fossil replicas and artefacts and square up to a life-size animatronic T. rex – who, if alive today, would weight around seven tons and whose jaws would crush the sturdiest of bones with ease.
It's up to you to decide…does the king of the dinosaurs deserve the formidable title of predator, or was it was a sneaky scavenger instead?
Included with standard Day Ticket. Please see website for further information on opening times.
