WHAT'S ON OFFER
The interactive DinosAlive exhibition is a showcase of the majestic lizards of pre-historic times. Our 16 animatronic (able to move their limbs, blink their eyes and roar with their voices) dinosaurs are sure to leave any visitor absolutely spellbound!
DinosAlive also offers a range of seriously fun, engaging activities for youngsters. For the kids, there's dino-rides (where your child will be able to ride the back of a life-size animatronic dinosaur!), PlayStation games, a dino-drawing table, a jumping castle and also the 'excavation site' - a sandpit full of 'fossils' where young archaeologists will be able to put their dino-digging skills to the test. Mature visitors can look forward to a dino-fossil exhibition.
After a long day of adventure at the DinosAlive exhibition, younger and older visitors alike can pay a visit to the dino-restaurant for a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage, in order to restore their energy levels again. DinosAlive also has a fully stocked merchandise shop, where the true dino-fanatic can obtain precious memorabilia, or simply find a souveneir to take home after a great time at DinosAlive.
Imagine being able to not only see our dinosaurs move, blink and roar, but being able to interact with them too. DinosAlive will have augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) at our exhibitions, where visitors can enjoy various experiences:
- Get up and close with the king of the dinos with the high-end T-Rex VR experience.
- Make a memory that will last forever and check out the dinos augmented reality selfie wall.
- If you're looking to learn something interesting about the lizards of old, then the information Overload AR experience is for you.
- Up for a mind challenge? Put your brain to good use and have a go at the guess-the-footprint-AR experience.
ABOUT OUR DINOSAURS
Our dinosaurs come from far and wide, and are visiting us from a time very, very long ago. Despite this, they love meeting all the humans and showing them their histories and backgrounds! You'll be surprised at how friendly they actually are.
Our dinosaurs would love to meet you wherever you live, so please get in touch with us if you'd like them to come to your city! They are very interested in learning about different cultures and nationalities, and will gladly show you everything about themselves in return. Even though they are pretty famous, they don't have big egos and will stay true to their prehistoric roots throughout their visit to your town. Locals from all over South Africa and Zambia will pay testament to how gracious and accommodating these enormous lizards are. Don't judge them before you meet them!
The only complaint that we have received is when our dinosaurs escape from the exhibition - this usually happens before we open our doors, as they are very keen to meet all the local people. If you spot one of them in your garden, don't worry - they won't eat you or your pets, but are likely to enjoy a bite of your plant or any leftovers outside your fridge. During exhibition time, they always stay put in order to meet visitors every day, all the time.
WHERE TO LOOK FOR DINOSALIVE
Much like the reptiles of old, DinosAlive is an ever-evolving, ever-changing entity. Until we figure out how to build a time machine, we will be travelling to Port Elizabeth from now until early 2018 on separate dates.
COME MEET TIMMY
Our baby dino, Timmy, has a lot to say about the DinosAlive exhibition! Watch his progress as he grows up and come meet him at the exhibition.
FRIENDLY, HELPFUL STAFF
All DinosAlive staff are friendly, helpful and able to assist you with all dino-related questions. Child safety is also a high priority at all DinosAlive exhibitions.
