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!

Dinosaur Performers for Lousiana Peach Festival

Dinosaurs in Lousiana

Our performers were recently hired for their longest (and hottest) event to date. The Lousiana Peach Festival in Ruston, Lousiana had Fawkes & Arnie out to interact with the festival-goers for 10 hours in the Louisiana sun!  We'll do just about anything for our clients :) Here are some pictures from the event:

Our dinosaur performers make the interactions fun and exciting; the next best thing to having a real raptor or TRex at your event.

Although we specialize in corporate events, we are happy to perform at private functions and birthday parties as well. Our dinos have been hired for everything from festivals to weddings, from TV shows to viral videos, from birthday parties to arena-sized corporate conventions.

Dinosaurs in Las Vegas - Easter Celebration

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:

Fawkes & Arnie are a velociraptor & allosaurus respectively; both of which were discovered in the Utah/Nevada area so they felt right at home. If you need a dinosaur performer in Las Vegas or anywhere on the east coast, contact us or call us at (480) 258-3740. We'd love to bring some prehistoric fun to your event.

We can also provide other dinosaur goodies like you see in these pictures including: inflatable dinosaurs, Jurassic Park jeeps, creature encounters, DJ's, Sound systems, face painters, balloon artists, etc. Not only do we do Dinosaur Events, but we are partners with one of the country's most experienced entertainment agencies. We can provide everything from A/V, bands, Dinosaurs (of course), lighting, decor, you name it.

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 :)

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:

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:

Arnie the allosaurus made some new friends. It's a good thing he wasn't any closer or he may have actually gotten shot. **ba-dum ching!**

Dinosaur Fleet for Adobe


This last weekend we had a blast and provided our entire fleet of 5, realistic dinosaur performers for Adobe's corporate 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. Scaring people as they came out of the theater was particularly fun for our dynamic duo. There is nothing quite like seeing the Aw ... (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
