65 million years in the making

Get ready for the ultimate playdate—65 million years in the making—as Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live guides your family on a breathtaking tour that begins in pre-historic Australia. You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids, while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world. Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live puppets are so extraordinarily realistic you may feel the urge to run and hide—but don’t!  While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you’ll agree, it’s well worth the wait.
