Sheffield to host city’s coolest family event with Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom

Tickets for Europe’s first-ever touring ‘Ice Age’ themed attraction on sale now

 A mammoth outdoor Ice Age animatronic experience is heading for Sheffield, featuring over 40 impressive installations of animated life-sized beasts.

 Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom, is Europe’s first-ever touring Ice Age themed attraction and is set to bring the sights and sounds of the prehistoric era to life between 18th May and 2nd June 2019 at Norfolk Heritage Park in the city.

 Both entertaining and educational, the two-week long family spectacular will let visitors wander among woolly mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, giant sloths, and a range of other animals that roamed the earth over 70,000 years ago - alongside scenery and props to recreate the Ice Age period.

 All 40 animatronic creatures will have moving body parts, wide opening jaws, and sound effects that will help immerse visitors in the prehistoric experience.  

 The event will also host an ice age excavation pit, a mini cinema marquee showing an educational Ice Age documentary, virtual reality pods, and a handful of street food and drink options.

 The Ice Age tour has been organised by Weli Cultural Alliance, which brought Jurassic Kingdom to the city last year, and is also visiting Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham, finishing in Leeds in November 2019.

 Naz Kabir, Global Event Producer and Marketing Director at Weli Cultural Alliance, said: “We’re delighted to be visiting Sheffield as the second city on our tour. We were keen to develop a new, family friendly, concept that really pushed the boundaries of our technology, and this event will allow for a truly unique adventure.

 “The tour is currently going down a treat in Birmingham, and we hope that the people of Sheffield are just as excited as we are about coming to their city.”

 

Tickets for Ice Age: The Lost Kingdom are on sale now and can be booked online in advance for £12.50 for adults, £10.50 for children and £42 for a family of four.
