Perhaps I'm just a sucker for this kind of thing, but I was VERY impressed by this whole show. It was kind of short (about two 1/2-hour segments), but just right for kids. I took my 4-year-old daughter, who loves dinosaurs, but I knew I was taking a chance that we'd leave after 10 minutes. To my delight, she wanted to stay for the whole thing, and came home with a stuffed T Rex that is currently eating all her other animals. She said she liked the show, though it was a little scary, and pretty loud (she had her hands over her ears for most of it, but she does that a lot). The paleontologist's patter was way over her head for the most part, but I interpreted the important parts and she seemed to really enjoy the spectacle of it all. I'm sure we'll be processing it for a long time, but all in all it was a success.
Either way, her new T Rex is her favorite companion now, and I find her regularly flipping through the program we bought and saying the names of the other dinosaurs - Torosaurus is a favorite. And I had a blast - no matter how much my rational mind told me "these are just big animatronic robots", the illusion was very convincing. And when a life-size T Rex roars in your face, there's a pre-rational part of your brain that responds and reminds you that you are still just a mammal at heart.
After years of planning, the award-winning BBC TV series, _Walking With Dinosaurs _comes to life in a stunning theatrical event.
Internationally renowned designers have worked with scientists to create 17 life-size dinosaurs, including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus-rex!
Be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before your eyes. It’s a dazzling 20 million dollar arena spectacle of unprecedented size and quality set to captivate young and old alike. Marvel at the story of their 200-million-year domination of life on Earth. Watch them walk. Hear the roar. Be there as they fight for survival and supremacy. From the ripple of their skin to the glint in their eye, you will know the dinosaurs really have returned! So make sure you have your seat to see the return of the dinosaurs!
