Dinosaurs Awaken Maize Maze

A palaeontology team have discovered a huge T-Rex fossil in the maize maze at the Adventure Farm. They were astonished to also find ‘live’ dinosaurs – a T-Rex and Velociraptor! The fossil bones are still in the maze and team refuse to go in and retrieve them so we need your help.

There are 10 bones to collect spread throughout the 10 acre maze. Stamp your quiz sheet each time you find one. Post your entry at the maze end point to be in with the chance of winning a family weekend in London.


If you’re feeling really brave, face the dinosaurs and take on the Raptor Run in the maze. You’ll need your wits about you to get past the live T-Rex and Velociraptor and collect a dinosaur egg from the nest.


Also, try Panning for Fossils (£2 per go) and see our handler ‘train’ our T-Rex and Velociraptor.
