JURASSIC Earth’s “live dinosaur show” roams York in an immersive experience for all ages at the Grand Opera House on January 28 at 1pm and 4pm.

State-of-the-art, animatronic, life-like dinosaurs feature in this 75-minute interactive story-telling show where audiences can not only laugh, scream and sing but also “talk to a Triceratops, roar with a T-Rex, look up to a Brontosaurus, scream with a Spinosaurus and run from a Raptor”.

Joined by a zany professor and an eccentric doctor, a team of rangers and dinosaurs brings the Jurassic era to life through a combination of entertainment and education.

Audiences are invited to “bring your biggest roar and your fastest feet as you take Ranger Danger’s masterclass to become an Official Dinosaur Ranger – gaining the skills you need to come face-to-face with the world’s largest walking Tyrannosaurus Rex, a big-hearted Brontosaurus, tricky Triceratops, uncontrollable Carnotaurus, vicious Velociraptors and sneaky Spinosaurus”.

Anything else? You can “feel the excitement of watching a dinosaur egg hatch in front of your eyes and experience the thrill of meeting the cutest Ankylosaurus, Pterodactyl and baby hatchlings”.

Jurassic Earth’s dinosaurs have featured on the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky, not least on ITV’s Dancing On Ice where the naughty Raptor snuck up on Holly Willoughby and Ashley Banjo.
