Tickets for Dinosaurs in the Wild are now on sale through the event’s website – https://dinosaursinthewild.com/. The show will play at the NEC in Birmingham from 24 June to 24 August 2017, and at Event City in Manchester from 7 October 2017 to 7th January 2018. A London venue will be announced in the coming months.
This brand new 70-minute adventure will transport families back over 60 million years by time machine to witness live dinosaurs as they have never been seen before. For the first time, the public will be able to see and feel for themselves what it was really like to be there millions of years ago.
Cutting edge 3D movie effects, animatronics, sound, lighting, and dramatic story telling with live action are being combined to immerse them in an exciting, completely believable prehistoric world. Guests will get safety briefings from their guides, travel through herds of dangerous dinosaurs, watch a dinosaur autopsy, witness hatchlings emerging from eggs and come eye to eye with a very angry Tyrannosaurus rex.
Dinosaurs in the Wild has been created by award-winning producers behind one of the most successful dinosaur productions of all time, Walking with Dinosaurs. Creative Director Tim Haines produced the landmark BBC TV series which was seen by 800 million globally and producer Jill Bryant headed the spin off arena show of the same name, which attracted 8 million visitors worldwide. Cocoon Wealth raised the funding required to build the first “Dinosaurs in the Wild” set and is the largest investor in the project.
A team of over a hundred specialists are currently working on the production which has been in development for five years. The animatronic dinosaurs in the experience are being crafted by multiple Emmy and BAFTA winners Crawley Creatures and state of the art computer generated imagery is being produced by leading visual effects company Milk, who recently won an Academy Award for sci-fi smash hit sci-fi film Ex-Machina. Live action will be directed by Scott Faris, whose numerous credits include Chicago on Broadway and Las Vegas productions.
Tim Haines said, “I’m thrilled to have some of the best creative minds in the business working on Dinosaurs in the Wild. We are all committed to putting together an experience unlike anything the public have ever seen before. Production is still going on, and we’re keeping full details under wraps for now, but people can expect the very best in animatronics, CGI and live action when we open next June.”
