An imaginative world full of adventure, fun, and problem-solving, Dino Ranch celebrates teamwork and friendship as the Cassidy family rounds up, rides, and cares for a lively herd of racing, roaring dinosaurs!
“Dino Ranch has received an incredible response from kids and parents around the world and we couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to produce a second season,” commented Boat Rocker Media president and general manager Michel Pratte. “The show is a shining example of franchise IP for Boat Rocker, and we are looking forward to continuing to build brand affinity and engagement love for ‘Dino Ranch’ with our partners.”
