    • Can I leave my children here while I go shopping?

      Dinotropolis is a family experience, and when you’re In the wilderness, you’re stronger in numbers! We require adults to be responsible for children during their visit to the park. If you are wanting to leave the park at any point, you will have to take your little Rangers with you. We want everyone to enjoy the park together and hope this doesn’t change your mind about your visit.

    • Do you offer a discount for carers?

      All children entering the attraction will be charged the standard rates. But, for any person who is in need of support from a carer, up to 2 carers who are able to provide the relevant carers credentials will be able to enter the attraction free of charge.

    • What is the capacity of the park?

      At capacity, the park can accommodate 300 people. We limit our bookings to 250 to ensure comfort and compliance.

    • Is there a policy on an adult to child ratio?

      We ask that each parent/guardian is responsible for no more than 4 little rangers so that we can keep everyone as safe as possible during their visit to Dinotropolis.

    • Why are adults charged entry to Dinotropolis?

      Dinotropolis has strict guidelines to comply with on the capacity levels inside the attraction, and often we have more adults than children in the park. For example, 2 parents will bring along 1 child. Dinotropolis is a family attraction and we encourage the grown-ups to participate with the children, this also improves the supervision levels of the children whilst playing. This all works to provide safe and comfortable environment for our guests.

      When you purchase a Dinotropolis Membership, you'll pay £15 per child per month for unlimited access and an adult will always go free!

    • Who is responsible for supervising children?

      Parents/guardians are responsible for the supervision of their children at all times. Please inform your older children of the basic rules of play to ensure a comfortable and safe visit for all. Please pay attention to ensure older children do not play in the baby and toddler areas. The Dinotropolis team are at hand to help make your visit enjoyable and to support with areas of the attraction. Adults are not permitted to leave the centre whilst their children are playing. One adult (per family group), who is 18 years or over must be present in the centre at all times. In the event an unsupervised child is found in the attraction we may need to follow safeguarding procedures and report the incident to the relevant authorities.

    • Is there a behaviour policy to comply with at Dinotropolis?

      Rangers are here to have fun, but we must ensure that everyone behaves appropriately to ensure a safe environment for all. In the event that a child behaves aggressively or in any manner that puts themselves or others at risk of harm, a member of staff will ask the child to take them to their parent/guardian where they will be advised of the behaviour and asked to increase their supervision of the child. If the behaviour persists we will ask the family to leave. This is to promote the safety of all guests.

    • Do grandparents and children aged 0-18 months go for free on Grampasaurus sessions?

      The Grampasaurus offer applies when there is a paying child. When there is a free child entry, Grandparents will be required to pay the £5 entry fee for adults.

You decide to cancel on June 25th 2019. Your final payment will be July 5th 2019. You will continue to have full membership access until August 4th August.

    • How do I cancel my membership?

      You can cancel your membership at any time by emailing us at cancellations@Playcentral.fun. From this point, you will make one final payment.

    • With my membership do I have to book or can I just turn up?

      You will need to make your booking online so that we can guarantee your entry and avoid any disappointed Rangers! You can do this by booking on the website. When you make your booking, the system will recognise your user name as a member and when you select a Membersaurus session, the shopping cart will read £0.00. From this point, you can complete the booking process as normal.

      Please note that if you make a booking and do not show up, you will be charged the value of an Explorer pass (£12) for every child and £5 entry for each adult so please ensure to cancel your booking if you cannot make it.

      If you bring the child with the membership along, any child below 18 months (as well as one adult) will have free entry as part of this membership.

      However, if you were to bring your under an 18-month year old along without the child with the membership, you would need to pay an adult entry charge of £5. This means that it would be more cost-effective to purchase a membership for each child, if you are planning on only visiting with the under 18 month-year-old frequently.
