Visitors to the beachfront park’s Family Fun Day will get the chance to come nose to snout with none other than 13-ft long Tyrannosaurus R-eggs.

Those brave enough will be able to pat gigantic reptile R-eggs, who will be controlled by his keeper, as he roams through Golden Sands Holiday Park at the free-to-attend event on Sunday, April 1.

But raptor-eyed visitors will spot that there’s more to R-eggs than it seems. For the fearsome fossil is an incredibly lifelike, animatronic puppet that can walk, growl, swing his tail and gnash his teeth.

Plucky, a friendly, giant chicken with her hen-pecked sidekick companion, will also be on hand. The duo will be bringing fun, Easter frolics, music and songs to onlookers at the Visit England five-star rated park. The event is also open for non-residents to go along and enjoy.

Other fun activities will include face-painting, balloon modelling, inflatables, children’s rides and hot food and drinks.

Golden Sands Holiday Park owner Nigel Thompson, says: “We like to let our imagination run wild at Golden Sands and bringing Tyrannosaurus R-eggs to welcome everyone on Easter Sunday will be a roar-some treat for visitors as part of a cracking day of family entertainment.

“As well as all the fun and games, we’ve some egg-stra special caravan deals that are anything but prehistoric, including our Golden Easter X sale with up to 25 per cent off selected new and approved used models.”

The fun takes place from noon onwards on Easter Sunday.
