If you think the Mega Creatures are scary during the day wait until you hear and see them at night, lurking in the bushes and around trees, when the sun goes down the Mega Creatures will be illuminated with special lighting to create an atmosphere that’s sure to fascinate both young and old alike.

Special lighting has been installed to make the displays come to life and the night time calls of the dinosaurs will have you jumping out of your skin. There’s nothing quite like walking through a dark spider tunnel at night… not for the faint-hearted.
