The dinosaurs have arrived!

Clacton Pier has taken delivery of a consignment of giant pre-historic creatures individually commissioned to star in its latest major attraction.

The herd includes an eight metre long Tyrannosaurus-Rex, four metre Dilophosaurus and Velociraptor, a Bambiraptor, and a Pterosaur.

A 4D special effects cinema has also been installed and work is progressing well towards an opening in the Spring.

Jurassic Pier is replacing a 40-year-old seaquarium which was dismantled over the winter by an in-house team.

Once the area was dismantled and gutted, the cinema was put in by West Midlands firm Simworx, one of the world’s top suppliers of motion simulation technology.

Pier director Billy Ball said the exciting project is on schedule and the new attraction is really starting to take shape.

“We began taking the seaquarium apart in November and it was quite a lengthy job,” he said.

“However, we are now at a stage where we can see this mammoth scheme coming together and our animatronic dinosaurs have been shipped in from Asia.

“It was good to see them arrive; they are now being looked after on the pier by their keepers and settling in nicely, ready to meet the public very soon.

“Simworx have been on site and carried out their programme of works which included the cinema and motion seating.”

Mr Ball added that a new roof is being laid on part of the building and will be finished the week before Easter.

The fit out – including fencing and the dinosaur enclosures - is continuing and will be followed by theming and installation of the audio visual lighting and sound.

Other equipment, such as 3-D glasses and water-squirters, will make it a fully immersive realistic experience.

“There will very much be an educational element to Jurassic Pier – as well as the fun adventure element,” said Mr Ball.

“With a few changes it will also be a multi-functional facility we can incorporate into other events such as Halloween and Christmas when required.”

Be careful of people asking for your money or investment platforms promising huge returns. I saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency about a month ago and I took my chance. I contacted a broker who I saw videos on You Tube and I invested a huge sum of money around £475,211 which was deposited using Bitcoin. They locked my account and requested more money before I could access it, and that was how I realized I was being conned. I saw a post on Quora about GEO COORDINATES HACKER With a little faith in me, I contacted them immediately, and discussed my situation, and sent all the information I had. In less than 48 hours I was able to recover my Bitcoin. I wish to recommend them to everyone out there. They are capable of recovering any crypto coins Bitcoin. I'm so happy to share this excellent news with you all. Contact them if you need any crypto recovery assistance, through Email: (geovcoordinateshacker@proton.me)

DO NOT TAKE any children in your family that are under 1metre. You will be rudely turned away. If you have children over 1 metre and also younger ones and you want to go as a family, basically, YOU CANT! It says when booking that anyone under 1.1metre must be accompanied which my grandson was but apparently they didn’t mean it
