The returning exhibition follows the roaring success of last year’s Jurassic Kingdom stop when the tour visited Glasgow, where it completely sold out.

Online prices are £11.50 for adults, £10.50 for concessions, £9.50 for children and £38 for a family ticket plus standard booking fees. Free entry for children aged two and under.

A T-Rex standing 18m from head to tail, a battle between Deinonychus and Tenontosaurus, a 16m long gentle giant Diplodocus and many more dino-mite encounters will greet visitors as they travel back in time over 65 million years.

Snarling jaws, moving eyes, swaying tails and roaring sound effects bring these incredible creatures back to life. And there will also be some rather unusual dinosaur eggs to discover this Easter.

He said: “What we’ve been able to do is add the very latest information on the interpretation boards with regards to these particular dinosaurs based on recent research and statistics.

"That means when families come to visit, children can enjoy learning something new and exciting based on the latest research around these magnificent creatures from the past."

Full scale models have been built by experts in China and the tour is being run by multi-media experts Weli Cultural Alliance.

The walking tour will last round an hour - depending on how fast you can run, laughed Naz Kabir, Weli Creative's event and marketing director.

He said: “I think almost everyone loves dinosaurs, you just have to look at everything from kids’ books to Hollywood films to see how popular they are.

"They remain one of the great mysteries of history however, so while we may never be able to bring any back to life, we can do the next best thing. That’s what Jurassic Kingdom is all about – fun, adventure, excitement and education.
