Win one of two family tickets to visit the Leeds Dino Jaws Exhibit.
Leeds City Magazine have teamed up with the Royal Armories International, The Natural History Museum and New Dock Hall to bring you this great Leeds Dino Jaws prize.
Each family ticket to the Leeds Dino Jaws exhibit will allow 4 people to enter the attraction and be amazed at the fantastic dinosaur exhibition.
To win one of the family tickets, we want you to come up with a brand new dinosaur name. The two most imaginative, funny or insightful new dinosaur names will win a family ticket.
Species names are usually in latin and often have literal meaning behind them. For example Tyrannosaurus rex would translate to “Tyrant Lizard King”. What would you call your invented dinosaur? Feel free to let us know if there is a story behind your dinosaur name.
The closing date for the competition is the 20th of August 2014. Email your dinosaur names to “email@example.com” with ‘Leeds Dino Jaws’ as the subject line. Please include a contact phone number and an address so that we may contact you and send tickets.
Leeds Dino Jaws, a Natural History Museum Exhibition exploring what and how dinosaurs ate for dinner, featuring 10 animatronic dinosaurs, including a three quarter life size T-Rex, comes to NEW DOCK Hall, Leeds from 3 June – 7 September 2014.
The dinosaurs’ stay in Leeds directly follows a visit to Hong Kong Science Museum, where they were seen by over 750,000 visitors in just five months. Following NEW DOCK Hall they will be moving onto The Hague, Netherlands.
Using the same techniques that scientists use, visitors are encouraged to become dinosaur detectives and study dinosaur jaws, claws, guts and even a huge mound of poo piled high behind the plant-eating Euoplocephalus animatronic, to discover what dinosaurs ate. Visitors can investigate the poo to find traces of what this armoured dinosaur might have eaten, although intrepid explorers must watch out for its deadly swinging tail! There is also the opportunity to touch real fossilised dinosaur poo!
Maren Krumdieck, Touring Exhibitions Sales Manager at the Natural History Museum comments:
“Visitors will find themselves stepping back in time, and walking into the feeding frenzy of hungry dinosaurs from slow-moving plant-eaters to fierce, agile flesh eaters. This spectacular exhibition brings together intriguing fossil evidence, fun hands-on exhibits, scientific insights and the 10 most lifelike and spectacular animatronics you have ever seen! It was hugely popular during its time at the Natural History Museum and I’m delighted that Leeds is featuring as part of its ongoing world tour.”
James Vincent, Managing Director of NEW DOCK Hall comments:
“We’re delighted to be bringing this hugely popular exhibition to Leeds for the summer holidays. Over a year in the planning, we hope to delight, amuse and educate families as they get up close and personal with our dinosaurs and their dinner.”
The exhibition will be open daily from the 3 June – 7 September 2014, 10am – 6pm.Visit Dinosaurs in Leeds
