You can now book a ‘Jurassic Park’-themed Airbnb with massive animatronic dinos

Watch out for the velociraptor lurking by the hot tub

The Jurassic Park franchise shows no sign of stopping. With a new movie – Jurassic World Dominion – due to be released later this year, dino lovers really are spoiled for top-quality prehistoric content.

If the movies aren’t quite immersive enough, though, this Airbnb in Skamania County, Washington, lets you experience all the thrills of traveling 65 million years back in time. Perhaps most intriguingly of all, you’ll be surrounded by a load of animatronic dinosaurs: a giant T-Rex guards the doors, and there’s a velociraptor lurking by the hot tub. 

Inside, there are three spacious, stylish bedrooms (sleeping eight altogether), a well-equipped kitchen and a huge TV. Families are well catered for, as giant boardgames and dinosaur toys are dotted throughout the property. There’s a bright blue jeep in the backyard, too, so you can act out your favorite scenes from the movies.

Think your little lot will be into it? Fancy booking a trip? Well, you should know that there’s a two-night minimum stay, and that prices start at $1,437 (£1,060) per night. You can find out availability and book on the official Airbnb page.
