The Arena Spectacular: Walking With Dinosaurs
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 nationwide.
A landmark in family entertainment, Walking with Dinosaurs has been seen by over 7m 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.
This event takes place at Manchester Arena, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The $20 million production Walking With Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular is back, featuring new, state of the art technology, underlining its position as the biggest and best dinosaur show in the world.
This updated production will showcase spectacular and colourful changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research, including the likely feathering of some species. The one-hour, 40-minute show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking With Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular 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.
Nine species 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 11 metres tall and 17 metres 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.
