To coincide with World Autism Awareness Day, TraffordCity-based adventure golf attraction, Dino Falls Adventure Golf has launch Autism-Friendly sessions starting Tuesday 2nd April 2019.

With approximately 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK*, the team at Dino Falls Adventure Golf have recognised the importance of making the course more accessible to those visiting with autism. The sessions, which will occur on the first Tuesday of each month from 5.30pm to 7.30pm, will include adjusted lighting, reduced sound and low-level music on the course.

Pete Styles, Director of Golf at Trafford Golf Centre and Dino Falls, said: “At Dino Falls, we pride ourselves on being accessible for all. The introduction of Autism Friendly sessions on the course will ensure a more comfortable and quieter experience for customers. We ask that all customers are respectful of the session and mindful when visiting during that time.”

A firm favourite with kids, big kids, mates and dates, the Jurassic-themed attraction features gigantic moving (and roaring!) dinosaurs, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex, set around a winding river and a huge cascading waterfall, along with a ‘Selfie-osaurus’ for capturing memorable moments.
