At RentaDinosaur, our story began with the passion and dedication of our founders, Chris and Anna. Chris initially started the company with Dexter, the adorable T.rex. Anna, who would occasionally help out, soon realized the potential of creating unforgettable dinosaur experiences. When she decided to join the company full-time, she invested in acquiring our first BIG Dino, Tiny the Triceratops. This marked the beginning of a new era for RentaDinosaur.
With the addition of Tiny, RentaDinosaur began to attract significant bookings, including high-profile events at London Zoo and American Speed Hatch. These successful events not only helped to establish our company as a leading provider of dinosaur experiences but also fueled our growth, allowing us to expand our collection of dinosaurs and reach even more dinosaur enthusiasts.
Over the years, we have expanded our collection, now boasting 3 large dinosaurs, two T.rex’, a variety of riding dinosaurs, over-the-shoulder dinosaurs, and a charming assortment of baby dinos. Our evolution has not only been marked by an increased number of dinosaurs but also through new ventures and collaborations.
One of our recent achievements is our collaboration with Jurassica Theatre on the stunning musical production, “Jurassica Spectacular,” at the Churchill Theatre. This partnership showcases our commitment to innovation, creativity, and our continued pursuit of creating unforgettable dinosaur experiences for all. Our love for dinosaurs drives us to constantly push boundaries and create memorable experiences for everyone to enjoy.
