Imagine a trip to a zoo, an aquarium and a wildlife park all in one and then substitute all the animals for dinosaurs. Renowned the world over for their theatrical magic and for pushing the limits of design, content and experience, Erth’s Prehistoric World is a fusion of the highly successful Dinosaur Zoo and Prehistoric Aquarium that invites children to step into the action of the performance. Get ready.
“Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo delivers solid science as well as an extraordinary spectacle.”
Bringing ancient creatures from land and sea together in one show, Erth's Prehistoric World is the perfect combination of theatrical magic and charm. It takes the audience to the bottom of the ocean to discover ancient bio-luminescent creatures and incredible marine reptiles, and then back to dry land to witness some of the most amazing dinosaurs to have ever walked this Earth...
Life-like creatures literally swim off the stage into the audience, and invited audience members come onto stage to test their courage with the prehistoric wonders.
Dinosaurs are a gateway to learning, inspiring young minds to consider an array of subjects from science to literature, geology to bio engineering, and natural history to mathematics. Dinosaurs have become a curious link between child and parent, grandparent, guardian and educator. The learning opportunities are immense.

“This is very clever, beautifully constructed and hugely entertaining children’s entertainment from an outfit that implicitly respects its audience and doesn’t talk down to them.” The Daily Telegraph
"A delightful and educational date with the dinos” The Chicago Tribune (USA)
"Parents and grandparents seemed just as awestruck as the kids at the technical brilliance…” The Manchester Evening News (UK)
FROM THE DIRECTOR
Erth's journey into prehistoric times has provided a platform for the company to engage with children on a level that has surprised even us.
Erth is not a company that exploits dinosaurs for commercial gain but as a way of starting long and lasting relationships with our worldwide audiences united in our love and wonder for the natural world.
