Giant dinosaur attraction comes to Trafford Golf Centre
9 August 2017
A spectacular new dinosaur attraction is coming to Trafford Golf Centre,
in the form of one of the UK’s biggest adventure golf courses.
Work has started on ‘DinoFalls’, an 18-hole adventure golf course, set
within an incredible ‘Jurassic’ setting next to the M60 (Junction 10) at
Trafford Golf Centre. Gigantic moving dinosaurs will feature around the course, including a
water-spraying Pterodactyl, at what will be one of the most impressive
adventure golf sites to be created in the UK.
Memorable and eye-catching attraction
At almost 5000sqm in size, DinoFalls will feature dinosaurs as high as
six-metres tall, ‘fossil’ paths, huge boulders, caves and a dramatic three-metre
high waterfall leading into a river and lake.
Pete Styles, Director of Golf, at Trafford Golf Centre and the
soon-to-launch DinoFalls, said: “This is exciting news for Manchester and we’re
expecting this to be one of the busiest adventure golf sites in the UK.
“DinoFalls will cater for the ever-growing leisure market within
TraffordCity, adjacent to the Trafford Centre, providing a memorable and fun
activity for families, couples, children’s parties and corporate and school
“With the backdrop of ChillFactore behind us, and the incredible
Jurassic setting being created next to the M60, this will certainly be one of
Manchester’s most eye-catching attractions.”
Adventure golf in a Jurassic setting
Around 70 tonnes of artificial
rock, along with 340 tonnes of concrete, are being shipped to the site to create
this dramatic adventure golf course. The ‘Jurassic’ setting will be further
enhanced with more than 500 specially selected plants from palm trees to
shrubs. Aside from the gigantic dinosaurs, the biggest attraction will be the
impressive waterfall with more than 1,500 gallons of water falling over the
face every minute into a specially created river.
DinoFalls will incorporate an
educational element with two rooms available for school classes or parties,
along with fact-finding around the site, providing an opportunity to learn more
about dinosaurs and the prehistoric period.
The site will be the biggest 18-hole
dinosaur adventure golf course out of London and is due to open in Autumn 2017
and compliment the existing Trafford Golf Centre facilities which provides a
Starbucks licensed café, 62 bay golf range, seven PGA professionals teaching
from the Academy and the leading American Golf retail store in the North.
