Kilkenny's Newpark Hotel is celebrating 1 year since their hugely popular dinosaur attraction Jurassic Newpark first launched on Saturday 10th June 2023, and to celebrate we have family passes to give away!

Over the past year, the park has doubled in size with 12 new animatronic dinosaurs, a dino-den theatre, a new fossil dig, longer park walks and a new Bounce City attraction launching mid-June.

Since it was first launched in June 2022, the Jurassic Newpark attraction continues to expand with an additional 6 lifesize animatronic dinosaurs that move and roar increasing the herd to 12. Species including Tyrannosaurus-Rex, Velociraptor, Brachiosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, Dilophosaurus, dino eggs, and baby dinos are set amongst prehistoric style planting to create 'habitats' for visitors to explore and discover.

Always striving to exceed expectations the Newpark team continue to innovate, and a will launch brand-new Jurassic Bounce attraction is set to launch mid-June! They have also added a dedicated team of park rangers to add to the interactive side of your visit and have built a dino-den theatre for educational and entertaining talks and shows. Learn cool fossil facts at the Dino Den where Head Ranger Luke gives five talks per day at the weekend and watch out for the puppet shows and a 6ft T-rex who lurks about!

There's also a new fossil dig sandpit with tools on hand for junior palaeontologists to make exciting discoveries and they have also increased the length of park walks, which of course all connect to the existing adventure playground which features swings, slides, tree top adventure centre and a secure zip line. Things get magical along the fairy trail where you'll find fairy doors, a storytelling talking tree and a wishing well! There's also a wildlife petting farm on site, here you can make friends with llamas, alpacas, emus, highland cattle, goats, sheep, ducks, guinea fowl enjoy 'feeding time' on the farm, and much more.
