If you are willing to walk just a few blocks, the parking gets more reasonable. Come early and enjoy the Grammy museum first.

Description

For 200 million years Dinosaurs ruled the earth. Now, they’re back roaming the arenas of America in the extraordinary theatrical production based on the award-winning BBC Television Series.  

Walking With DinosaursThe Arena Spectacular has sold out performances and broken records in arenas all over America – generating $136 million in ticket sales to date. It has been seen on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kelly, and has been written about in Newsweek, The New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor and the Wall Street Journal.  

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the awesome Cretaceous.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail. 

It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the original production.   The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution, complete with the climatic and tectonic changes that took place, which led to the demise of many species. 

With almost cinematic realism, Walking With Dinosaurs has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, and the audience sees how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.
