Gigantic bugs arrive at Chester Zoo

Following the success of its dinosaur exhibit last year, which saw robotic models of prehistoric marvels roaming free amongst the more traditional animals, Chester Zoo has utilised the same special effects wizards to create their newest attraction, BUGS!

The exhibition, which boasts 13 larger-than-life animatronic insects, including a 33ft tarantula, a 24ft scorpion and a 10ft ladybird, opened on July 13th and will continue entertaining families until November 3rd. Visitors who buy entry tickets to the zoo will pay no extra for their children to visit the exhibition, so it promises to be a memorable and affordable visit for families.

As with all of its exhibits, the zoo is intent on educating as well as amazing and inspiring people. It has peppered its secretive marketing materials with hints about some of the physical properties and amazing facts on the insects in question. The publicity has been particularly designed to target conservation projects in schools and will also be broadcast on related shows on television.

As well as offering a great day out for the whole family, Chester Zoo is hoping to raise awareness of these animals and their importance to the world.

The exhibition is expected to attract visitors from up and down the country, including local families with their children on school holidays and those from further afield who may be staying in accommodation near Chester for their summer break.

Whichever it is, the giant insects are bound to be a huge draw as the holiday season gets into full swing.
