Dinosaurs in the Wild is coming to London

Date Posted: 17/01/2018

Live action experience Dinosaurs in the Wild will run at the Greenwich Peninsula in London from 10th February until 31st July.

Dinosaurs in the Wild is a live action show that uses animatronic dinosaurs to take viewers back to the Cretaceous era and envision what it would have been like to walk among dinosaurs.

The experience will virtually transport school groups back 67 million years to the time of the dinosaurs and the Cretaceous period. It has been designed to allow pupils to use their imaginations as they come face to face with animatronic dinosaurs, bringing Science to life.

The educational experience

The adventure experience lasts around 70 minutes and features ‘cutting-edge effects’. Pupils are encouraged to ask questions as they explore the surroundings, including laboratories in which they will witness an animatronic dinosaur hatching.

School groups will also see scientists conducting a virtual autopsy on a dinosaur, giving them an insight into the anatomy of dinosaurs. Plus they’ll get to use virtual reality to find out what it was like to see through a dinosaur’s eyes.

There will also be an array of objects and artefacts on show, such as dinosaur tissue samples, eyeballs, brains, teeth and claws.

The experience ends with a 360 degree view of the dinosaurs in what has been created to reflect their natural environment.

In addition to the experience, there are curriculum linked resources available for all schools booking a visit which will support both English and Science lessons.
