At the beginning of the nineteenth century, strange artefacts began to be discovered. They were the bones of gigantic and prehistoric creatures the like of which had never been seen – until now. Let us take you on a journey 75 million years back in time, to a time when dinosaurs walked the earth. Our 4 metre long life sized animatronic dinosaur puppets are the unique and interactive entertainers you have been searching for. They walk, roar, blink …but luckily they don’t bite, much. Perfect indoor or outdoor entertainment ideal for stage shows and interactive walkabout. Each dinosaur comes complete with operator and handler to create a truly unique experience. 

Dino Encounter – also known as a ‘stage show’, ‘street show’ or ‘circle show’. A series of jaw dropping demonstrations by one of history’s top predators, with a little help from several unsuspecting audience members! 
Dino Petting Zoo – also known as a ‘photo opportunity’ performance. This gives your guests the chance to pose for free, up close and personal with baby dinosaurs for photos & selfies, whilst having the opportunity to put questions to the handler. 
Meet and Greet – also known as a ‘walkabout’ performance. The handler takes the dinosaur on a walk around the venue or arena area, giving them free rein to explore and interact with people any way they see fit. 
Need something to attract the eyes of your customers? We can offer this unique opportunity of having a dinosaur appear to bring a special highlight to your product or brand. She certainly never fails to catch the eye and make a lasting impression …interestingly, people never seem forget an encounter with a dinosaur! 
Please Note: We require a firm, level, and dry area for the performance. We also require a changing area hidden away from the general public so that we don’t ruin the magic. Once in costume, the puppet operator is very limited in the distances they are able to travel. For this reason we require a changing area ideally within of 30m of the performance area. 
If the changing area is inside a building, please ensure that there are no stairs between the changing area and the performance area, also please ensure there are no doors with less than 100cm width clearance between the changing and performance area. We are unable to perform in the rain, snow or on damp mud, so it is advisable to have a wet weather as well as a heat contingency plan in place for outdoor events. For logistical reasons we require free onsite parking suitable for a long wheel base van.
