Took my 9 yr old. Great effects and humour. 5 dinosaurs in total 1 hour max. Save ur money and go to Lunar Park. Not worth the coin. Needed to be longer.

Really good

If you don't enjoy this show you have a sense of humour malfunction.

Aimed at young kids but has humour for all ages.

Audience participation was great.

Could watch the whole thing again tomorrow.

Highy recommended.

brilliant puppets but a meaningless show
Aug 2019
At the Edinburgh Fringe, expensive tickets and an intelligent 3 year old saying repeatedly "This is Boring". This was because the lazy presenter of the show spent most of the time walking round the audience collecting a child to go on stage to look totally uncomfortable. He chose younger kids, and this meant that any of the so called 'educational' part of the ridiculous 'script' was lost in an attempt to get the said children to perform to the presenter's satisfaction. An uncomfortable waste of money and a disappointing waste of some excellent puppets.

The show needs to be extinct extinguished like the dinosaurs it represents.

An overconfident presenter who yells like a cave dweller. Trying to scare young kids and leaving nothing desirable to remember. Don’t blame the TV, for young minds only like to forget the terrible. Don’t waste your money on the show unless you want to scare your young one with loud voices. They should change the script and make it fit for young kids as in the lastend presentation. We saw the show in states and was a waste of 40$. please don’t take any stroller bound kids to the show. Only some kids are selected to participate and that makes it interactive for three or four kids, making rest feel left out.

Erth's Dinosaur Zoo USA Tour 2018
Mar 2018 • Family
I went into this not knowing what to expect after reading the reviews here. Honestly I was prepared for the worst. Thankfully I was happily surprised at just how good the show in its current iteration is. The Host(Charlie) was vibrant and engaged with the audience. Her witticisms while a little flat for the adults were not lost on the children. There is no overarching storyline,the show is presented as if it were animal handlers bringing out an animal or two at a time to educate about and interact with,but there are stories/backgrounds given to a few of the dinosaurs that serve to endear them to you.

Our 5 year enjoyed the show start to finish,She has a healthy interest in dinosaurs and now is asking to attend more theatre performances. About 9 kids were brought up on stage at various points in the show, each time my child kept asking me when was our turn so I had to explain that not everyone was going to be on stage. I mention this because I heard the same refrain around us and its something you may want to be prepared to discuss. If you are intent on getting your child to participate I would say your best bet is to be in an aisle seat.

Fun time for all! Splurge on the VIP tix!
Mar 2018 • Family
I just saw this show at the Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading, PA yesterday with my Godson, Alex, and his mom. We all had a such a fun time. Definitely splurge on the VIP tickets. VIP tickets allow for meeting the puppeteers and puppets prior to the show. Families get to go on stage, touch the puppets and learn about them. All of the puppeteers were great with the kids. Luckily, my Godson was brought up on stage during the show to interact with the T-Rex. Other children were brought up as well. Alex loved meeting Charlie, the lovely headliner paleontologist. She was so great with Alex and talked with him after the show, showing him the T-Rex tooth. I really enjoyed the ending encouraging comment about going out to local museums and learning all you can. Thank you so much, Charlie and puppeteers!! Memories that will last a lifetime! Next stop....American Museum of Natural History, NY!!

EARTH'S DINOSAURS ZOO
Mar 2018 • Family
Save your money. 4 tickets cost 80 dollars for 1 hour of talking about 5 puppet dinosaurs. No special effects such as lighting or music. I've see elementary school put on better productions. Only interactive if your child was selected to participate. Get your wallets out for a picture with a dinosaur for 15 more dollars. Tip go to a real museum to see some awesome dinosaurs. Perhaps stop at Barnes and Nobles for a book and Wal-Mart for a toy plush.

Don’t do it
Mar 2018 • Family
We have a 4 year old who adores all things dinosaur so these seemed like a no brained. I can not express what a joke this show is. First the stage looks like a grade schooler created it. A couple of inflatable trees and a bad PA system are about it. There were 6 Dino skits total a baby; duckbills, a dragonfly, triceratops, T-Rex, brontosaurus. The actual stage time is minutes for each except the T-Rex. Amazingly the show made dinosaurs boring. Jokes are flat for both children and adults. Show is 1 hour and completely amateur and boring. I have never reviewed anything but was so disgusted that I took the time to register with trip advisor and wrote this. Don’t waste your hard earned money.

Not worth the price of Premium Tickets!
Feb 2018 • Family
When the ERTH troupe came to Ohio, I thought this would be the perfect event for my dino-crazy 6-year old daughter and promptly purchased the $52.00 per person VIP tickets so we would be in the front row (the "danger zone" where children are more apt to be chosen to go on stage with the dinosaur puppets). Before the show started she even told the presenter that she wanted to be a paleontologist and that her favorite dinosaur was the T-rex. My daughter is very introverted and never raises her hand for anything ever and yet she was out of her seat crying, "Me! Me!" whenever a volunteer was needed. Unfortunately she was totally ignored as were the other excited children in the front row. In fact all of the volunteers were chosen from way in the back from the cheaper seats. When the T-rex came out she was beside herself with excitement that quickly ended in tears when she was ignored. I understand that not all children get chosen, but what exactly was the point of paying for VIP tickets? And then after the show we could pay $15.00 extra to get a picture of her holding a baby triceratops. The icing on the cake was that the boy chosen to go up on the stage with the T-rex also got a golden dinosaur so that he could get a free picture with the baby dinosaur. There really wasn't much of a show as it mostly revolved around interactions with the chosen children-which left out all of the others. I'm pretty easy-going and forgiving, but they should either put on a show for everyone to enjoy or don't bother. The money can be easily forgotten, but now I know my daughter will never raise her hand again for anything...ever. Purchase the cheaper tickets if you decide to attend.
