The Busiest Month of the Year for Jurassic Extreme!

Hello Dinosaur lovers!

It’s busy, busy, busy over here at Jurassic Extreme Headquarters. It’s official. October 29th will be our busiest day in the Jurassic Extreme history. All six of our dinosaurs are booked and ready to go.

Aside from our birthday appearances, we return to Southminster’s School Fall Festival for a second time. Discovery Green has asked us to be a part of their Toddler Tuesday on Tuesday, October 11, 2016. Excited about that! Also, drum roll please….we are coming back to Sugar Land Town Square for much smaller scaled event on Friday August 28 and Sunday October 30th for their 2016 Halloween Town event. On Halloween, we will be at the City of Pearland’s Halloween Trick or Treat event. Last but not least, Jurassic Extreme will be invading Greenspoint Mall for a fun Halloween event.

As always, we would like to thank our awesome city of Houston for the support and love for our dinosaurs! Expect for more new walking dinosaur costumes in 2017!

Walking Dinosaurs Have Landed In Houston

Texas Dinosaurs

Lots of things have happened since our last blog post. If you follow us on social media, you’ve been catching a glimpse of all the behind the scenes happenings. Which by the way, if you haven’t done so yet, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook page for all the action.

So, finally after almost 3 months of waiting, our first Walking Dinosaur landed in Houston. Our first arrival is our baby T-rex named Rocket. We have been spending a lot of time getting to know him. It’s amazing how big this dinosaur is in person, not to mention, how incredible the detailed craftsmanship invested in all his features. Truly amazing! That being said, we are excited to finally have Rocket in Houston.

And, here’s breaking news! Our second Dinosaur, Razor The Raptor has just landed. Pics have been posted which can be seen on facebook so go on and check them out.

We are also very excited to announce that Jurassic Extreme will be making a debut this Saturday in Angleton, Tx. It is for a Dinosaur themed birthday party for a happy five year old. And, next Friday we head to the George R. Brown  convention for the I-SWEEP, The International Sustainable World (Energy, Engineering, and Environment) Project , science fair organized by  Harmony Public Schools. We are super excited for both events and can’t wait to get these big boys out their cages.

Well folks, that is it for now. Please be sure to connect with us on social media and leave us any comment/question you may have. Stay tuned for more dinosaur news!

Jurassic Extreme Houston

Greetings from the Jurassic Extreme base. Hope you are having a fantastic week. With every new venture comes an equal part of excitement, anticipation and nervousness. To best describe this experience, it’s been a thrilling roller-coaster ride with many twists and turns. And, yes, a few subdued inner screams along the way. From international dealings with China (never dealt with them before) to shipping delays due to the current strikes in California; it’s been keeping us on edge but the unexpected is what makes any journey worthwhile. After all, if every new passionate idea was easy, everybody would be doing it, right?

So, let’s talk about the latest news, shall we?

Our T-Rex, Rocket is now scheduled to land in Houston on April 4th. Once he’s settled in and gets his well deserved home welcoming party, we will be sure to capture it all on video and share it with you. The whole Jurassic Extreme team can’t express how excited we are. We are just as excited as you are to see them in person and experience their awesomeness. My son Max Leon keeps reminding me of Rocket’s arrival. He is super excited and I can’t blame him. It’s been great sharing the same joy and excitement with him. Truly an amazing Father and Son experience.

We’re almost there folks!

On a different note, we would like to thank you all who have expressed interest, shared our page, liked our posts, contributed your skill-set to make this happen. Jurassic Extreme is fueled by family and friends that believe in this vision of ours. To bring a whole new dynamic to live entertainment with dinosaur-ism!

While we anxiously await their arrival, please be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Youtube and our Instagram page where we’ll keep you updated with the latest pictures, video footage, and news about the dinosaurs.

Thanks again for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon and share our Walking Dinosaurs in Houston. I leave you with some cool fun facts our very own Marketing/Branding Ranger, Ozeal put together. Get ready to get your dinosaur 101 education right here! Enjoy.
