For the very first time, Londoners are able to catch a time machine back to the age of the dinosaurs, when the jaw-dropping new spectacular, Dinosaurs in the Wild, roars into the capital and onto the all-new Greenwich Peninsula.
The unique, multi-million-pound immersive experience is currently housed in a brand-new bespoke venue near North Greenwich Underground station. No existing London venue was available for the live-action show, so they decided to establish their own on empty land on the peninsula.
The result is a vast, hangar-like temporary building covering nearly 3,500 square metres on a site that has taken four months and a team of over 200 to create.
The cutting-edge structure was built by world-leading specialists, using innovative technology that gives it the look, feel and quality of a permanent building.
90 cubic metres of concrete was poured, with seven tons of steel, to reinforce the floor for the heavy time machines that will whisk people back 67 million years to the Late Cretaceous, to see incredible “living” dinosaurs in a way that has never been possible before.
After successful launch runs at Birmingham’s NEC and Manchester’s EventCity last year, the high-tech show – described by visitors as thrilling, amazing and just a little bit scary – will now immerse Londoners in an unforgettable experience, making them feel as though they are really there with prehistoric giants like Tyrannosaurus, Alamosaurus and Triceratops.
Dinosaurs in the Wild is open to the public on the Greenwich Peninsula, just a few minutes’ walk from North Greenwich Underground station. The experience will stay in the capital until 31st July 2018.
