Essential info
Please read! 

Please note that some areas will be closed from 5 September – 25 October (inclusive) as we get ready for the launch of the new Space Zone (opens 26 October). Prices have been reduced to reflect this.

The 4D Motion Ride has been a firm favourite for visitors of all ages since Life Science Centre opened nearly 20 years ago. However, as the science centre continues to grow and evolve, it is time to retire this popular attraction to make space for something new – so make sure you visit by 25 October 2019 if you want to enjoy one final thrilling ride! Life would like to hear from visitors what they’d like to see replace the 4D Motion Ride, so please send your ideas to info@life.org.uk. Also, don’t forget to check out the science centre’s newest exhibition Space Zone from 26 October 2019 to explore the wonders of the Universe and discover how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.

Event details

Don’t miss Dino Jaws, an amazing exhibition from the Natural History Museum, featuring life-size animatronic dinosaur heads – including the terrifying T. rex!


Explore the sometimes gruesome, always fascinating, subject of dinosaurs and their food. From the notorious flesh-eating habits of T. rex to the vegetarian tastes of Iguanodon, dinosaurs had many interesting ways of catching their meals and eating them.

See up-close how their teeth and jaws moved together to tear, grind and chew food. You can also explore intriguing fossil evidence, hands-on exhibits and fascinating scientific insights that reveal everything we know about what and how dinosaurs ate.

Dig for virtual fossil evidence to discover what Baryonyx munched on, examine a huge poo to find traces of Euoplocephalus’ last meal and discover the chilling theory about the deadly Coelophysis’ dinner.

Featured dinosaurs:

  • Tyrannosaurus head

  • Edmontosaurus head

  • Brachiosaurus head

  • Baryonyx

  • Ceolophysis

  • Velociraptor

  • Protoceratops

  • Iguanodon
