Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom

An all new animatronic outdoor Ice Age experience opening at Birmingham Botanical Gardens from 6th April – 28th April 2019!
Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom is a spectacular outdoor Ice Age experience aimed at family audiences with over 40 impressive installations of animated life-sized beasts. Visitors will learn about and come face to face with huge Ice Age beasts including the Woolly Mammoth, Smilodon (Sabre Toothed Tiger), Cave Lion, Woolly Rhinoceros, Mastodon (giant elephants), Megatherium (Giant Sloth), Short Faced Bear, Giant Beaver and many more……

These beasts from 70,000 years ago are brought to life through animatronics, which include moving arms, tails swaying side-to-side, heads moving up and down, eyes blinking and jaws opening wide with roaring sound effects. Making for a truly awesome educational and entertaining Ice Age experience!

This is the first outdoor Ice Age experience of its kind in the UK and a truly entertaining and educational experience for families. Visitors will explore gardens and parklands and uncover epic life-sized beasts along their walkthrough journey with scenery and props recreating the Ice Age period. Along the route will be a mini cinema, street food and drink stalls, fossil excavation pit and a merchandise shop for visitors to take home a souvenir of their experience.
