Perfect for the grandkids. Perhaps too much roaring and posturing, but I wasn't there at the time to judge. The science was good enough for the target audience. The models were great.

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 15 life-size dinosaurs, including that terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before your eyes. The biggest dinosaurs are enormous, with the adult Brachiosaurus standing over 40 feet tall. They represent state-of-the-art new 360-degree animatronic technology going beyond current techniques that have been developed for the film and TV industries. It’s a dazzling $20-million 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 them roar. Be there as they fight for survival and supremacy.
