Prepare yourself for the return of the dinosaurs, the most awesome creatures ever to have walked the Earth. Thanks to the tireless efforts of some of the world's best engineers, designers and scientists, these prehistoric beasts have returned to life. Okay, it's only animatronic "life," but it's still impressive not to mention far less likely to eat the unwary.
Starting today and continuing through January 27, Walking With Dinosaurs: The Live Experience will amaze and delight dino fans of all ages. Based on the award-winning BBC television series, this show puts $20 million worth of the most advanced hardware and software available to the task of resurrecting a greatest-hits parade of ten of the most awe-inspiring dinosaur species known to humankind. From the classic T. rex to the fifty-plus-foot-long Brachiosaur, from the Jurassic to the Cretaceous period, the best the prehistoric world has to offer will be on display in all its life-sized glory as the program follows their evolution and existence right up to the comet impact that might have ended their reign.
