I took my kids to see this show at the Alltell Center in Little Rock, Arkansas U.S.A. last month. It is absolutely THE coolest thing I have ever seen. I have been fascinated with dinosaurs since I was a very young, and this show brought back some of that magic from my early childhood.
It is a live show production based on the BBC series Walking With Dinosaurs. It was difficult to judge, but most of the animatronic (I think that’s the correct word) dinosaurs appeared to be close to scale size.
I had two very pleasing observations during and after the show. First, my son and daughter were absolutely amazed, and I love seeing them become interested in anything scientific. Second, I was expecting to hear someone in the audience telling their children that the host of the show was incorrect, and that dinosaurs really only lived 6000 years ago; surprisingly (and refreshingly), I didn’t hear that at all.
The audience seemed to be fairly educated about the dinosaurs. I think it’s a good sign when 6 and 7 year old children in the audience can tell the difference between a Torosaur and a Triceratops, or a Brachiosaur and a Diplodocus.
If you have the opportunity, do check out this show. The merchandise is pricey, but the show is worth every penny.
