“Wow, Wow, Wow… informative and entertaining” The Times
Based on the award-winning BBC television series Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular sees Tyrannosaurus Rex and his awe-inspiring life-size pals return to stalk UK shores once more, as these pre-historic giants get set to astound, thrill and educate a brand new generation of budding palaeontologists.
Audiences will marvel at this production of unprecedented size and quality, as pre-historic beasts of unmatched realism roam the stage and capture the imaginations of young and old alike. Watch the story of their 200 million year domination unfold as you see them walk, hear them roar and come face to face as they fight for survival and supremacy. From the ripple of their skin to the glint in their eye, you will know the dinosaurs really have returned!
Walking with Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular is brought to the U.K. by Global Creatures, headed by CEO Carmen Pavlovic, in association with BBC Worldwide. Pavlovic said, “The BBC Series was a brilliant blend of special effects, escapism, excitement and information. In order to bring this TV event into the third dimension on stage with life-size dinosaurs, we created a £12.5 million spectacle so immense that it can only fit into arenas.”
A landmark in family entertainment, Walking with Dinosaurs has been seen by over 7million people in a staggering 206 cities across the world. Ranked No.4 in Pollstar’s Top 100 Worldwide Tours, their phenomenal global success is credited to the pioneering work of its long-serving and passionate production team. Bringing to life 20 to-scale dinosaurs night after night, this technological feat is of epic proportions.
