    Get ready for the ultimate playdate – 65 million years in the making – as Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live guides students on a breathtaking tour through pre-historic Australia. You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world. Between 230 and 65 million years ago, some of the most amazing creatures ever to have lived ruled our planet. The most successful of these creatures was a group of terrestrial reptiles called dinosaurs. Not all the dinosaurs lived at the same time, nor did they all live in the same part of the world, but they existed on the earth for more than 165 million years.
