It's incredible that anyone would go to Jurassic Park, what with the danger of raptors, T-rexes, and Richard Attenborough, who in spite of being able to reanimate ancient lizards is apparently incapable of making another Great Escape. Sparing no expense to bring you the almost-real thing: Dinosaur Safari Adventure Golf!
Officially launching today in Herts, Safari's a floodlit putt-fest designed by one of the "world's leading adventure golf designers" (yes, that job exists), who created an animatronic-dino-populated, "Florida-style" course (no kidding, it's filled with dinosaurs). What that actually means, of course, is that you can expect verdant tropical vegetation, palm trees, moats, bridges, traps, and waterfalls snaking around 18 progressively difficult holes, with the trickiest unsurprisingly ending at the rear. The "almost life-size" dinos themselves'll be fully functioning, "moving and breathing" robots (each with a signposted description, so beware learning), and'll include a T-rex, a triceratops, "the mighty Stegosaurus", and even the beloved "Leaellynasaura", which shockingly didn't evolve from Wales.
They plan on having 11 of the ancient lizards up and running when all's said and done, most of which touch down this week -- just don't let the few missing ones get your goat.
