The Great Dino Escape Competition!

Name our new dino and be in with the chance of winning an epic #TeamDINO prize!

We’ve welcomed a brand-new dinosaur into our team this year! As you may have seen, this energetic Velociraptor showed up at Red Funnel’s East Cowes terminal recently and was luckily, captured safely by our head trainer, Jimbo.

He’s now safely housed in an enclosure here at Blackgang Chine and will start training very soon; but first, we need your help!

Our new Velociraptor needs a name!

To find him the perfect name, we’re asking all our wonderful visitors to send in their suggestions! Everyone who suggests a name will be with a chance of winning a family visit to Blackgang Chine’s DINOS vs COWBOYS to meet the new Velociraptor in person, and a selection of #TeamDINO merchandise!

Scroll down to the entry form at the bottom of this page for your chance to win the grand prize!
