Award Winning Dinosaur Park

Come face to face with a 9.1m tall Tyrannosaurus Rex, and over 40 other prehistoric giants. Dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes inhabit our park! Learn their story of this exciting but deadly time!

Three Award Winning Showcaves

Great entertainment for all the family - includes our award winning showcaves where you can retrace the steps of the famous Morgan Brothers. These cave explorers were local farmers whose original efforts led to the creation of the most spectacular showcave complex in Northern Europe.

The Morgan Bros. Shire Horse Centre

Here Twm our 'talking sheepdog' will take you on a fascinating journey back in time to when Shire horses reigned supreme at 'Dan-yr-Ogof Farm'. Meet Dai our blacksmith and visit Tommy Morgan in his Victorian kitchen. See our magnificent shire horses, and the farm wagons they still pull around the farm. The other farm animals are never far away! Make friends with our Shetlands, donkeys, Welsh cobs, Alpacas, cows, goats, pigs, ducks and geese! Finally meet sleepy young Megan in the farm shop, and learn about her duties all those years ago.

Replica of an Iron Age Farm

Children can learn about life in the Iron Age at our re-created Iron Age farm. Life size models of the people and animals give you a very realistic idea of how these farmers lived, during those times. This exhibit is based on archaeological evidence. Dan-yr-Ogof has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. (S.S.S.I)

Also on the complex is a Ski-Slope.
