66 million years ago, Dinosaurs roamed this earth. Now, with the help of Dinosaur Experiences - they're back!

A truly 'roarsome' time! It's the perfect adventure for any dino fan. A rare chance to learn all about these fascinating creatures from the expert rangers, all while getting to see them up close and personal in this interactive experience.

What's Included:

There are plenty of activities to keep the family entertained during your visit. You will need approximately 2 hours to travel on the train and see all the dinosaurs, however, your ticket entitles you to access the event for the whole day (Event opening times 9:30 to 16:30).

  • A return diesel train journey (20 minutes either direction, stopping at both stations)
  • Dinosaur experiences with the expert Rex Rangers and a selection of large dinosaurs, including the mighty T-Rex and terrifying Triceratops
  • Baby dinosaurs for those who feel less brave!
  • Bouncy Castles, Miniature Railway Rides, & Small Fairground for smaller children
  • Brakevan Rides pulled by a real steam locomotive
  • Dinosaur Egg Trail - find all the unhatched baby dinosaurs around the railway and have a chance of winning tickets to one of our future events


Food and drink will be available at Brechin and Bridge of Dun stations including the Whistle Stop Café for lunches, coffee & cakes; BBQ and ice cream, and; buffet at Bridge of Dun.

Please note that following feedback from last year’s event, we have moved the main activities to Brechin to allow easier entrance and departure for visitors who are joining the train at Brechin.
