Where dinosaurs come alive, - entertainment with a bite! 

Huge dinosaur skeletons roar to life in this awesome display of puppets and performance. Have an up-close encounter with the jaws of a 20-foot T-Rex, hold your nerve as you face off with two hungry velociraptors …

These prehistoric beasts were carefully designed and crafted to be anatomically correct reproductions of real fossil specimens. Over 1000 hours of skilled craftsmanship has gone into each puppet, utilising the very best levels of sculpting and fabrication. Through an extensive rehearsal process the puppeteers mimic the posture and behaviours of modern animals to create a language of movement that breathes life into the bones of the dinosaurs. 

A living history museum experience where the displays walk among us.

The Jurassics were really really lovely – they’re great.
They’re so soft and gentle too – not scary at all, which I had some concerns about. A really, really great team!
