While you've missed your chance to have a real-live dinosaur encounter by about 65 million years, you can still get up close and personal with all of your fave "terrible lizards" at a Walking With Dinosaurs showt near you. Check it out!

The TV Show

Walking With Dinosaurs began as an award-winning six-part BBC TV series that, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, was the most expensive documentary series - minute for minute - ever made. The show was filmed like a nature documentary with "living" dinosaurs rather than interviews with experts. The series won three Emmy Awards, including Best Animated Program.

The Live Experience

The TV show was so popular that a live theatrical adaptation of the documentary series was created in Australia and began touring in 2007. The live show features 15 life-size mechanical dinosaurs, with the largest of them - the brachiosaurus - reaching 45 feet tall! Now that show has hit the road to North America! The super-realistic show is part art, part science, but it's all entertainment!

Show Review

If you’re tired of the same old museum field-trips and textbook [KWLINK ]fossil[/KWLINK] sketches, Walking with Dinosaurs is for you. Not since Jurassic Park have these “terrible lizards” been so alive, beautiful, and terrifying. There are a few clunky bits of narration and view-blocking set décor, but that’s just nitpicking when compared to the sheer technical brilliance of the life-size dinosaurs themselves. The great beasts not only look astoundingly lifelike, their movements are faultless too. Round up the whole family; this is one show you can’t afford to miss.
