Run by the slightly eccentric Professor McCoy and teenage daughter Alex, VIPS have been invited to visit their special theme park.

When the professor is caught up in a cyclone in the middle of the Peruvian jungle, she and the rest of the Jurassic Adventures team - glamorous but tactless paleo-botanist Paris Milton and the hapless young paleontology student Diego Carter - set off to rescue him.

There’s adventure, romance, comedy and plenty of chances to have some hands-on fun with pre-historic creatures and the arrival of the first paleolithic man, created from fossilized DNA.

Meanwhile, back at Jurassic Adventures, the two resident T-Rex’s aren’t getting along with the matriarch of the pair missing her newly-born baby Chub who is hatched and born live on stage. There’s even a chance to meet her afterwards.

The fully scripted show mixes culture, fun and education into a fun and complete theatrical experience for the whole family using a high-tech climate system that simulates artificial environments and state-of-the-art lighting.

The show is being brought to the UK for the first time by World on Stage and the team behind Disney on Ice.
