TREPID adventurers were able to discover a land that time forgot – right on their doorstep.

Lucky guests managed to try out Paultons Park’s brand new Lost Kingdom attraction ahead of its grand opening to the public. The popular Hampshire theme park is preparing for the opening of the much-anticipated £9m addition which boasts a host of new rides, rollercoasters and expeditions through the Jurassic landscape.

The new attraction will also see a first for the theme park as it unveils a suspended coaster where families can ride with their feet off the ground as they soar through the skies on the Flight of the Pterosaur.

It is also the first of its kind to be launched in the UK.

The thrill seeking experience continues as along with two new rollercoasters which also includes a ‘boomerang’ style ride called Velociraptor, guests can also enjoy themed family rides from the Triassic to the Cretaceous periods, a prehistoric dinosaur adventure play park and an opportunity to come face to face with walking animatronic dinosaurs.

The finishing touches are being made to the prehistoric landscape before its opening on May 17.
