Dinosaur Zoo, the popular interactive exhibition featuring realistic dinosaurs, is returning to Hong Kong for the first time since 2016 as part of KidsFest 2024. The event will take place at the Rita Tong Liu Drama Theatre of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts from January 25-February 25, 2024.
Families who buy tickets to each session of Dinosaur Zoo will get the chance to feed and touch a variety of realistic-looking dinosaurs — from hatchlings to adult herbivores and carnivores. They will be guided through the menagerie setting by a host, during which they will encounter replicas of prehistoric insects and extinct mammals.
KidsFest 2024 will also feature performances of popular children’s plays. We’re Going On A Bear Hunt will captivate audiences with catchy songs and interactive scenes as the cast embarks on a journey to find a bear. Audiences can also follow Tomas as he discovers the power of storytelling in I Believe In Unicorns. Then there’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, which will bring Eric Carle’s classic to life with over 75 magical puppets, including the eponymous caterpillar.
Tickets for all four shows are priced between HK$375 and HK$475, and are available on HK Ticketing. The shows are between 50 and 60 minutes long, will be performed in English, and have no intervals. They will be staged according to the following schedule:
- We’re Going On A Bear Hunt: January 25-28
- I Believe In Unicorns: February 2-4
- Dinosaur Zoo: February 5-18
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show: February 23-25
