Lancashire Post stepped into our world of dinosaurs in a behind-the-scenes look at Jurassic Earth. They witnessed our dinosaur choreography, discovered the individual personalities of our dinosaurs, and learnt all about the real ups and downs of working with live animals!
A Prehistoric Menagerie
Our paddock is the bustling home to an impressive herd of dinosaurs – each with their own name and distinct personality! Among the notable members are T Rex, Raptors, Spinosaurus, Brontosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, Dilong Paradoxus, and many adorable hatchlings.
The Jurassic Earth team comprises incredible Managers, Technicians, Operators, Actors, Puppeteers, all unparalleled in what they do. Their dedication keeps our dinosaurs all maintained in tricera-tip-top working condition, looking wonderful, and they know how to get the best out of each beast!
The Evolution of Jurassic Earth
The story started with Rex, the T-Rex, the heaviest dinosaur in our repertoire – now retired! Director Erica Crompton envisioned the idea of having walking dinosaurs as an attraction for events after being inspired by ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’. ‘Why dinosaurs? Everybody loves them, including us. The joy they bring to children of all ages is fantastic to witness.’ Today, our Dinosaurs appear at numerous events all over the country. They even star in their own theatre show, Jurassic Earth.
Mark your calendars! Jurassic Earth is stomping into Blackpool Grand Theatre on Sunday, February 18, with shows at 1pm and 4pm.
