We always wonder what type of things our kids will be into. For me, it was actually something very educational. Saying that Spencer is a dinosaur fanatic would be an understatement. The amount of books, DVD’s and toys we have is pretty extensive. It makes me a proud Mom to hear some of the things he has learned and also has taught me about them.
When Dinosaurs alive came to Toledo, I knew we had to see it. I really wish I could access my old laptop because that is where the pictures currently are. This show was much more than I expected. Our arena is somewhat n the small side and it was still very enjoyable. I am excited to head up to The Palace to see it in a bigger area!
Walking With Dinosaurs The Arena Spectacular depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. The show has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.
The show includes 10 species that 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 period. 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 production.
