Performer in a Realistic Dinosaur Costume in New York City

Dinosaur or Bridezilla?

In preparation for the release of a new season of "Bridezillas" the TV show, one of our realistic dinosaur performers was invited to the launch party in Times Square in New York City! The event organizer dressed our poor dinosaur in a white veil and even had him hold a bouquet of flowers between his claws. Our dinosaur got to meet the Naked Cowboy and a few Bachelorettes from previous seasons of the hit reality TV shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

In addition to our realistic dinosaur performer, we had the opportunity to provide the Bridezilla Museum of Natural Hysteria in Times Square with an animatronic dinosaur statue that was also dressed up as a bride. The dinosaur could be seen at the temporary museum in Times Square, New York City from February 20, 2018 to March 4, 2018. See a photo below of our animatronic dinosaur with a few former Bachelorettes.

The event was reported on by various news sources including the Times Square Chronicles and The Daily Brief.

It is not often that one can see a performer in a realistic dinosaur costume in New York City. Our "Bridezilla" took a quick lap through Times Square on the way to the party and caught lots of looks and took lots of selfies. Our realistic dinosaur performers had an amazing time at the party and have been invited back for an appearance on Good Day New York this Friday March 2, 2018. Look for us on TV!

Hire a Realistic Dinosaur Performer in Oregon and Washington.

Phil the T-Rex is on the loose!

Dinosaur Events is pleased to announce that we are now offering the option to hire a realistic dinosaur performer in Oregon and Washington. Phil is a fun-loving T-Rex perfect for Jurassic World and Jurassic Park events, private parties, and comic cons. See a few photos of Phil and his trainer's Jurassic Park Jeep below:

As you can see, Captain America is no match for Phil. He nearly lost his head! Luckily, Phil the T-Rex is well trained and is well-behaved... as long as he is well-fed.

Until now, dinosaur fans in Portland, Seattle, and other cities in the Pacific Northwest have not had a chance to see a realistic dinosaur costume in action. Phil and his trainer will be criss-crossing Oregon and Washington in the coming months to allow Phil to meet Jurassic Park and Jurassic World fans! Phil's Jurassic Park Jeep is a 95 Jeep YJ that is identical to those from the original movies. Contact us at the button below to get more info (including pricing and availability) on hosting Phil and his trainer's Jurassic Park Jeep at your next event! 

Check out Phil's profile and the rest of our dinosaurs on the Meet our Dinosaurs page.

Jurassic Park Theme Corporate Event Ideas

Of the events our realistic dinosaur performers end up traveling to, most are corporate events with a Jurassic Park or Jurassic World theme. From Los Angeles to New York City, we have been able to participate in some pretty awesome prehistoric parties! We thought we would share some photos and ideas from events across the country as inspiration for corporate event planners looking to create an awesome Jurassic Park theme corporate event. 

First off, what would a Jurassic Park Party be without Jurassic Park gates! These gates we entered through in Scottsdale, Arizona were pretty amazing. 

At a Jurassic Park themed event in Chicago, we entered through another set of slightly smaller gates. We even had the special guest enter in on the dinosaur's back! The event planners did an amazing job setting the tables with Jurassic Park decorations and even provided the guests with safari hats to wear! See a few photos below:


Some corporate event planners have even chosen to provide a jungle background in order to allow guests to get the best Jurassic Park style photo opp possible! Check out this jungle background from one of our more recent Jurassic Park events in Los Angeles.

Beyond the gates, decorations, and backdrops, realistic dinosaur costumes and performers are a must. They always turn out to be the life of the party! We have also seen some planners add static dinosaur exhibits and Jurassic Park jeeps (contact us to see if there is a Jurassic Park jeep in your area.) Our favorite add-on is just a freestanding toilet. Planners provide it to allow guests to recreate that one crazy scene from Jurassic Park. It makes for pretty hilarious photo opportunity! See what we're talking about in the video below:

If you're thinking about going with a Jurassic Park theme, do it! They're always a blast and, with the right props and decorations, really send you back a few million years. Feel free to reach out to us via the "Get a Quote" page with any questions; we're happy to tell you more about the Jurassic Park corporate events we've seen in the past. 

New Bumblebee Transformer Performer in the U.S.

Although we specialize in realistic dinosaur performers, Dinosaur Events is proud to welcome our new resident robot, a transformer performer named Bumblebee. Luckily, he seems to have made great friends with the dinosaurs. We'll be taking some more action photos and creating a video soon, but see some staging photos of our Bumblebee costume below and feel free to contact us to hire a  bumblebee performer for your event! Pretty impressive Transformer, right?

We have found that many of our clients have been interested in hiring a transformer, but the only costumes seem to be in the UK! Our new Bumblebee costume debuted at a December 4-5 event in Las Vegas, NV with more shows to come! It looks like Bumblebee will be appearing in Los Angeles, Nashville, and Chicago in early 2018. We will be sure to update our followers on our Facebook and Instagram pages when there are public appearances coming up.  Check out the video of Bumblebee in Las Vegas Below:

At 8.5 ft. tall, Bumblebee is a gentle giant. He loves putting on a show at corporate events, kids parties, and car shows alike. He speaks, he walks, he moves, and he dances. Of course, his only move is "the robot." 

Dinosaur Birthday Party in Utah

Blue the Dilophosaurus was no match for this little guy on his 1st birthday in Vineyard, Utah last weekend! His mom saw us at the Pioneer Days event in Provo, Utah this summer and said she knew that her little one would love having a dinosaur performer at his birthday party.

The dinosaur birthday party was held at a park, and we made a surprise entrance to the party with 30-40 kids! We had the birthday boy take Blue for a walk around the park and took pictures with guests for quite a while. Some of the kids even tried to feed pizza to the dinosaur! 

Dinosaur Birthday Party Utah

We usually like to play tag, soccer, and other games, but there were so many guests we didn't even have time!

Squirt the baby raptor also made a brief appearance and was able to take pictures and scare a few family members of the birthday boy before Blue had to get back home. 

We have sent performers to quite a few dinosaur themed birthday parties around Utah Valley in the last few months, and this was definitely one of our favorites! It is always fun to have lots of guests, a fun, open park for a venue and plenty of happy kids. 

Check out the "Meet our Dinosaurs" page on our site to see all of the realistic dinosaur costumes we have available in Utah for birthday parties, community events, and corporate parties.

Dinosaur Performers at the Los Angeles Convention Center

This was a fun one. An Allosaurus, a T-Rex, and a baby raptor let loose on Los Angeles. What could go wrong?


We were lucky enough to be invited to the AHIMA '17 convention at the Los Angeles Convention center and it was one of the best events we've ever had the privilege of participating in. The decorations were awesome! There was a Jurassic Park movie set for our dinosaur performers to run around in while guests showed up to take pictures. There were also a few other movie sets including Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Grease, and the Wizard of Oz. 

The event attendees were all adults, but we are always surprised by the amount of attention the dinosaurs get.  The adults might get a bigger kick out of the dinosaurs than the kids do! We had a good time dancing, posing for pictures, and scaring the occasional party-goer. 

Thanks to the Russel Harris Event Group for having us out. They're always great to work with. 

Until next time!


Dinosaur Performer for Birthday Parties in Chicago, IL

This past weekend, one of our T-Rex performers had the opportunity to perform at a Jurassic World themed birthday party in Chicago, Illinois. We had a blast!

Our dinosaur made a grand entrance through Jurassic Park gates with the birthday boy on the dinosaur's back. It was crazy! We spent the next few hours taking pictures, getting to know the guests, and chasing some of the kids around the venue. Considering our dinosaurs are all about 12-13 feet long, we are always sure to send a dinosaur handler along to make sure the tail doesn't knock anything over. This dinosaur birthday party was decorated beautifully and we didn't want our T-Rex performer to break anything! 

Downtown Chicago is a beautiful place, so we are grateful to Nicole Marie Events for organizing the Jurassic World party and the family for inviting us to their intimate, dinosaur themed party. 

Good times! Here are couple of pictures from the event.

The grand entrance!

Dinosaur for Commercials


Recently, a couple of our realistic dinosaurs took a trip to Los Angeles to shoot a commercial for LootCrate.  We had a blast and the end product was awesome. Check it out: [embed][/embed]

Got to hang out with Lisa Loeb and that kid from Jurassic World. How cool is that? Save a dinosaur, people! We've been hired to do several commercial shoots and TV shows. It is always fun to see behind-the-scenes at large productions. In this one, we brought along Blu and Arnie.  Blue is a more vibrant color and Arnie looks a little more natural. Together, they create a cool color-contrast. You might also have recognized squirt, our baby dinosaur. He didn't appreciate being cattle-prodded, but he's alright.

If you would like to hire a dinosaur for commercials or a video shoot, Contact Us . We'll get you a quick quote over the phone. If it's too far to travel, we have partners all over the globe. Chances are, we can get a dinosaur performer close to you.

Dinosaur Prank Video for Disney XD


Dinosaur Events had the privileged of working with Disney on their show: "Walk the Prank" over in Los Angeles, California. We took Arnie, the Allosaurus down to their studio to set up a fun dinosaur prank video. Check out this fun clip from the episode: [embed][/embed]

The hosts of the show hired a babysitter to come and watch a couple of kids who were excited to show off their new 3D movie projector. As they start showing the dinosaur movie, Arnie (our dinosaur performer) literally leaps out of the screen to scare the pants off our unsuspecting babysitter  Some have commented that this babysitter may have been staged, but we can attest that it was definitely not the case :)

We perform for a lot of corporate events and parties, but we absolutely love when we get approached by television shows, commericals, and movies to feature our life-like dinosaurs & costumes.

Dino Prank video snippet

If you need us for a dinosaur prank video, office prank, commercial, or television show, Arnie is always glad to lend a hand (or any of our dinosaur fleet). Contact Us at Dinosaur Events and let us help you out.

In addition to Arnie the Allosaurus, our fleet consists of the following main dinosaurs:

T-Rex and Raptor dinosaur for Hire

We also have 2 baby dinos (hand-help puppets), an inflatable comedic costume. Depending on the time of year, Dinosaur Events also may have 2 or 3 extra dinosaurs in our fleet so if you need a 6 or 7 dinos for a jurassic park event, we've got you covered!

Thanks to Central Church in Henderson, Nevada for having Arnie & Fawkes out to celebrate Easter weekend with you! Our dinos got to roam around the festival dancing and scaring the kids . Because what says Easter better than a bunch of prehistoric monsters chasing you around :) Here are a few pictures of our dinosaur at this Las Vegas event:

New Dinosaur Costumes - Meet Fawkes & Squirt


We'd like to introduce the newest members of our dinosaur Fleet: Meet Fawkes.  Fawkes has a fire-y personality and is probably our most terrifying dinosaur yet. He is a velociraptor and comes all the way from China! For those interested in purchasing a dinosaur costume, Fawkes is our newest generation model. Our manufacturers have improved many of the functions of the dinosaur including more dramatic and realistic movements.

Fawkes may look scary, but he is actually quite shy and enjoys playing with his brothers & sister as well as long walks on the beach.

In addition to our full-grown raptor, we also welcome his younger brother, squirt. He is a much smaller and younger raptor. In fact, he prefers to be carried around by our professional dinosaur trainers rather than walking around... what a baby :)

Sometimes squirt can get a little bite-y. He's just getting used to his baby teeth. We love bringing squirt along to our dinosaur events. Hire a dinosaur performer and we can add-on squirt really easily.

Dinosaurs for Atlanta Corporate Event


This last week, Blu & Rex were excited to entertain for the Genie and Terex corporations. The setting was awesome; their party took place at the Fernbank natural history museum in Atlanta, Georgia and our dinosaurs felt right at home. Take a look at this awesome venue: Hire a Dinosaur in Atlanta

Our dinosaurs perform all over North America and are used to corporate parties like this one; but this one was especially fun because we also got to rock out to a live band. As we listened to Atlanta's own "The Rupert Orchestra," our dinosaurs got to dance and sing along :)

Corporate Entertainment Dinosaurs Dinosaur Performers Atlanta

We always love performing for corporate events and if you hire our dinosaur performers, you might just make your party the most memorable party ever! Here are a couple more pictures of our realistic costumes entertaining the crowd:

Dinosaurs - As Seen on Comedy Central!


Arnie & Blu both had their cable network debut last night as they were featured as characters on Comedy Central's "Workaholics." The episode entitled Night at the Dudeseum features the guys trying to steal from a natural history museum, but end up being chased around and cornered by our very own Arnie & Blu. Check out the episode on Comedy Central's website: . **Warning** some language & adult content. Here are some screen shots from the episode:

Dinosaur Comedy Central - Being hit by a sword Workaholics Dinosaur - Night at the Dudeseum Workaholics Dinosaurs - Jurassic Park Workaholics Dinosaurs 3 Brian Henson Dinosaurs Dinosaurs in Televison Workaholics Dinosaur

We had a blast being apart of the episode and it was really interesting to see how much work goes into filming a single episode. Because we had to shoot while the museum was closed, we had to shoot until the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, we were pretty exhausted by the end, but it was still a blast.  Now I'm sure everyone will be lining up to get the autographs of the Workaholics dinosaurs... after all, we're celebrities now :P . If you watch the episode, you'll see that we did not, in fact, get to play ourselves when outside of the dinosaurs. Mike was played a woman much shorter than him.

Contact Us & inquire about Hiring a Dinosaur performer for your own event, TV show, or office prank.

P.S. we were recently contracted to do another TV show so stay tuned for more information on that.

Walking Dinosaur Costumes - Utah Central Clinic

2 of our walking dinosaur costumes made an appearance at the Utah Central Clinic party this week. The party was a "Comic-Con" themed event and our dinosaurs got to mingle with all sorts of colorful cosplayers :) . As our T-Rex was being shipped from San Jose to Washinton D.C. for back-to-back corporate events, our allosaurus named Arnold (or "Arnie") and our dilophosaurus named "Blu" got to stretch their walking dinosaur legs. Thanks again for having us Utah Central Clinic; we love bring our realistic dinosaur experiences to non-profits and other corporate events. Here are a few images from the event:

Jurassic World Premiere Party - Realistic Dinosaur Costumes


Our two Dino - studs got to strut their stuff and show off for a few days at the MegaPlex Jurassic World Premiere.

(and terror) of little kids as they interact with our adolescent T-Rex's . These realistic dinosaur performers are a blast! Jurassic World Realistic Dinosaurs
