Tonight (October 26), the doors to GlasGLOW are opening to the public, where dinosaurs will roam Glasgow’s Botanics once again. The show will welcome thousands of visitors over the next two weeks (October 26 – November 13) to explore a pre-historic world filled with dinosaurs, creepy crawlies, volcanoes, and spades full of discoveries for adventurers to uncover along the 60-minute route.
Secret Glasgow acquired some first look insights from GlasGLOW, and it looks just as exciting. From drone images taken from above to light displays that are absolutely dino-mite and erupting volcanoes, you can have a sneak peek at what to expect throughout.
The immensely popular event, produced by a team of world-class set and sound engineers, has been a sell-out every year since its beginning five years ago. And this year, it will be bringing back its famous Pumpkin Patch, Marshmallow Land and its GLOW bar for those looking to fossil-fuel up along the way.
As soon as you walk in, you’re transported into what feels like another world, another time. Overtaken by a sense of adventure and wonder, explorers encounter a digging site where they find a portal into the past. After time travelling into prehistoric times, guests are taken on voyage through The Land That Time Forgot, with holding baby dinosaurs, finding a talking mummy and, of course, plenty of light installations.
Oli Norman, the founder of itison and GlasGLOW, said: “We are so excited to welcome our first guests to The Land that Time Forgot and hope they all survive our epic dinosaur adventure!
“It’s taken a year of planning and an amazing team of 273 across our stewarding, production and design team to make GlasGLOW 2022 happen at a time that everyone needs some light in their life.”
The experience will bring guests back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth and life was just simpler. It is safe to say that it’s the perfect evening out for the little explorers, and there is plenty to be appreciated for adult explorers alike. Well, after seeing the first look footage, we’re excited and cannot wait to get transported into the wonderous world of GlasGLOW with the dinos in full swing!
