Anyone who has ever visited Oxford Street in London, knows that it is famous for just one thing - Shopping! However, from January 29th thru April 30th, the normally staid street is being transformed into a modern-day Jurassic Park - one where pre-historic animals and serious shopaholics will co-exist in harmony.

'Dinosaurs Unleashed', the largest dinosaur display in the United Kingdom, has 24-life like dinosaurs robots that include the Stegosaurus, the Iguanodon, the Diplodocus and of course the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The exhibit which covers three dinosaur eras - Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous is fully animatronic, which means that the dinosaurs move and interact in a lifelike manner, allowing visitors to imagine what earth used to be like, 65 million years ago. The largest exhibit, the Diplodocus, is longer than three double-decker buses stacked on top of each other!

Besides looking at the dinosaurs, visitors can also search for dinosaur bones, make dinosaur footprints on an interactive track, experience the underwater world of these prehistoric creatures or simply grab a snack at the 'Dino' cafe.

Built to replicate the dinosaur eras down to the last detail, 'Dinosaurs Unleashed' is guaranteed to be a fun experience for both young and old. To read more about this cool theme park or play some fun dinosaur games, check out their website at
