Dinosaurs in the Wild

This experience runs for additional dates outside of the festival (Tuesday 7 October 2017 – Tuesday 2 January 2018). For more info, check out the event website.

Dinosaurs in the Wild will transport you back 67 million years and get you closer than ever before to the most awe-inspiring animals ever to walk the Earth. This thrilling blend of theatre, theme park fun and the latest palaeontological knowledge is combined to take you on the ultimate voyage of discovery, during which you’ll encounter living dinosaurs as they’ve never been seen before. Cutting-edge audiovisual effects and dramatic storytelling will immerse you in unique and unforgettable experiences that will make you feel as though you’re actually there – amongst the dinosaurs, in their world, at their time.

Dinosaurs in the Wild: A Closer Look*

To celebrate Manchester Science Festival, ticket holders and dinosaur super-enthusiasts can join us for even more prehistoric fun at a free 30-minute workshop.

You’ll find out if mighty animals like T. rex really did have feathers, see if you can honk like a duck-billed hadrosaur, and ponder the ways in which today’s dinosaur science is very different from the palaeontology of a mere couple of decades ago, thanks to some recent discoveries that shed light into the lives of these fascinating creatures.
