Dinosaur Invasion

Dinosaur Invasion is the story of dinosaur bones being discovered in the local area ... in an old abandoned laboratory Doctor Stone awaits the arrival of Professor Flint from the world renowned 'Dinosaur Museum' to share with him the amazing discovery of what appear to be remnants from the Jurassic Age.


However, unbeknown to him, Doctor Stone has been overheard speaking about the dinosaur discovery by a cheeky chimp named Chip. Chip is the sidekick of the 'not very nice' Nick-o-Saurus who decides to try and get hold of these dinosaurs and sell them for a big profit.


This is an interactive show with lots of audience participation and interaction. As the dinosaurs are brought out, the audience learns some incredible facts about each one.


This unique, fun-filled family show is suitable for all ages and features 16 realistic dinosaur puppets, animatronics and characters.
