Enjoy being an Ice Age explorer at West Midlands Safari Park this Easter

We are big animal lovers in our family and a lot of our days out involve going to see animals, either at attractions or just going out and about in the great outdoors. It's been a little while since we last went to West Midlands Safari Park (we go to the fireworks there every year), and even longer since we attended the launch of the Land of Living Dinosaurs, and I am really keen to go back soon as Ethan gets really excited and would gain so much more from the experience now he's older too.

We have the perfect excuse to go this Easter holidays as the UK’s largest Ice Age exhibit is opening at West Midland Safari Park TODAY!

Here's what I have found out about this latest attraction...

Ice Age is an immersive, multi-sensory experience, allowing guests to step back in time and walk amongst the magnificent creatures that roamed the Earth millions of years ago. An investment of £1.25 million has been put into this project and the WMSP team has created three distinct and interactive time zones, plus there's an enormous rumbling volcano and huge atmospheric ice cave installations, both of which can be walked through by intrepid explorers.

A great addition to the park alongside the Land of the Living Dinosaurs that opened in 2015, Ice Age continues the prehistoric journey and shows life on Earth after dinosaurs became extinct. The captivating exhibit, located in the Discovery Trail area, begins at the start of the Cenozoic Era nearly 65 million years ago and features over 20 life-sized species of mammals, the majority of which are animatronic. These moving, breathing and roaring creatures include a giant ground sloth, menacing hell pig and a herd of ginormous mammoth.

Intimidating guests as they embark on their adventure, a ferocious smilodon will guard the entrance to the exhibit (you might want to hold little one's hands at this part!). Also known as a sabre-toothed
cat, the smilodon is one of the most fierce and recognisable prehistoric animals.

The new exhibit has taken over six months to create, install and complete, with an expert team of manufacturers and sculptors creating such life-like creatures for visitors to enjoy.

You can also experience the significant climate changes the planet underwent millions of years ago to
the present day; from volcanic lands and lush greenery, through to barren landscapes with vast ice sheets stretching across large parts of the Earth.

Visiting the Ice Age area is included in the standard admission charge, which is currently £24.00 for adults, £19.00 for children aged 3-15 and £22.00 for concessions. Admission includes a Free Return Ticket (which is always a great bonus) and there is plenty of things to do to ensure you have a really roarsome day out, making it very good value for money.
