Question! What do you get when Houston’s fantastic four (Remy, Rocket, Razor, and Rocco) show up together for a free public appearance?
Answer: Total Pandemonium!
On Saturday, September 3, 2016, Sugar Land Town Square invited us to deliver a Jurassic spectacle like they’ve never experienced before. And that is what we did! We came, we roared, we conquered.
It was a FREE event featuring Remy (Spinosaurus), Rocket (Trex), Razor (Velociraptor) and Rocco (Trex). Over 2,000 people showed up to witness life-like walking dinosaurs (not real dinosaurs! lol.. really?) to take over the Sugar Land Town Square.
After our dinosaur introduction, we invited two lucky birthday boys, Dawson and Chasten to take Rocket and Remy for a walk. Hey! It isn’t every day a kid can walk a dinosaur, right? This experience is a fun one to watch and it never gets old. It give kids the feeling like their walking their own pet dinosaur.
The event proceeded with lots of dancing, photos taken, and happy parents/kids everywhere. There were some kids that got to race all 4 dinosaurs! It was a true spectacle. We were enamored by all the dinosaur frenzy going on. It was pretty awesome to witness. As exciting as it was, it also became a bit overwhelming, to say the least.
First and foremost, we would like to state that we take safety as our top priority at every one of our free events. We were expecting a big crowd, but nothing could prepare us for the massive disorder we experienced on this evening. We’re always learning from every event, and we’re currently reworking our public program to ensure safety for all. The attendees and our staff/operators.
No kids were bitten by dinosaurs. Ha! No kids were lost. Everyone returned to their families safely. The event was a total success despite a few logistical hiccups. Hey! It happens folks. We’re not perfect. We’re simply here to give you and yours an awesome Jurassic experience.
Last but not least, we would like to thank Sugar Land Town Square, officers on duty, and everyone that attended the event. We hope you had a great time and enjoyed the Jurassic Extreme experience.
Stay tuned for more FREE events around Houston. We are already working on something different. Hint: robot handler!
