The footage says Lost Jurassic World will boast “living, breathing, free-roaming dinosaurs”. The theme park will also have a ‘Blast Area’, where visitors can user NERF guns to shoot targets.

According to Ripley and Heanor News, Gulliver’s Valley Resort will boast 70 new rides and attractions, as well as pirate and princess-themed accommodation, glamping, self-catering woodland lodges and the central Lilliput Castle Hotel.

Gulliver’s Valley will be the fourth UK theme park project for Gulliver’s Theme Parks and Resorts, which has sites in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes.

The theme park will be aimed at children aged two to 13 years old and will include various outdoor and indoor attractions.
