Today, we had the best dinosaur adventure EVER!
We were fortunate to be invited to see Dinosaur World Live at the Troubadour Theatre in Wembley and frankly it was AMAZING!!
The show is so cleverly put together and is presented/narrated by Miranda, an explorer who has grown up with Dinosaurs.
“Miranda” was so lively and I loved that she spoke directly to the crowd. It’s a really interactive way to learn about dinosaurs.
I was so worried that Ita would be terrified of the dinosaurs as the sounds and aesthetics are quite scary! Within 2 minutes she was putting her hand up to go on stage with the biggest of dinos!
The show is aimed at 3 years + and I think this is simply dependent on whether you think your child would be afraid or not. I was hesitant but I’m so glad that we went as Ita really enjoyed it! (As did I!)
It runs for only 50 minutes which is perfect for smaller children but we enjoyed it so much that we really wished it was a bit longer! There is also a meet and greet with the dinosaurs after – perfect photo ops!
One issue we found was the parking! Wembley will forever be the most expensive place to park I think! We parked in the “yellow” car park which is very close to the theatre but as there was an event on at the Arena, it cost us a hefty £20! On non-event days parking should only be £1 an hour. Plan your visit on a day when nothing else is going on!
This show is part of the offer on London Kids Week (where a child goes free throughout August with a paying adult). If you are only going to see one show this summer, let this be it!
There is also an offer on Groupon if you’re simply an adult who wants to see it too!
