A 10 ft velociraptor is just one of the distractions set to put off golfers at the newest attraction to open at Blackpool Tower.

The prehistoric beast is one of several dinosaurs set to liven up a quick round of golf when the nine-hole course opens tomorrow.

Opening on Saturday on the seventh floor of Blackpool Tower, the attraction will take visitors back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the earth.

Although golf probably wasn’t as popular 65m years ago, this course sees plenty of prehistoric beasts making spectating.

Golfers have to cope with the pressure of putting under the watchful gaze of the velociraptor, or in the shadow of a seven-foot brontosaurus.

Other now-extinct creatures making an appearance – as well as growling and hissing – include a three-foot baby triceratops and a four-foot stegosaurus.

Kenny Mew, general manager of the Tower, said: “We are thrilled to be opening a new attraction at The Blackpool Tower.

“The course is an incredible design and we are anticipating it will be very popular.

“It looks amazing and will keep everyone entertained while they have fun playing adventure golf.

“We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to play.”
