The stunning theatrical event Walking with Dinosaurs that has charmed over 8 million people in 217 cities returned to The Wembley Arena Spectacular and it seemed that the dinosaurs were roaming London once again from 1 May 2013 to 6 May 2013. This show, which is based on the award-winning BBC television series Walking with Dinosaurs, showcases Tyrannosaurus Rex and his awe-inspiring life-size friends return to terrorise UK shores once again. In doing so, these pre-historic mammoth giants astounded, thrilled and educated a new generation of budding paleontologists.
This dazzling £10,000,000 arena spectacle has been designed by internationally famous designers who have created 20 life-size dinosaurs including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus-rex, in close cooperation with scientists. The greatest creatures ever created and ever to have walked the earth returned to amaze and thrill the audiences. Both young and old spectators were completely mesmerised by this fantastic show of unprecedented size and quality. They felt amazed at the story of their 200 million year domination of life on earth and they could watch them walk and hear their roar. They could see them fight for survival and supremacy. They could see what the dinosaurs were actually like by seeing the ripple of their skin and the glint in their eyes.
The hugely popular BBC series was first broadcast in 1999 and their worldwide tour enabled more than 7 million people to attend the same. The show at the Wembley Arena Spectacular presented a fresh opportunity for people to Walk with the Dinosaurs again. They could get up close to the terrifying Tyrannosaurus-Rex, who was hovering over them at a height of 39 ft, and they could also walk alongside Allosaurus, one of the largest carnivores of the Jurassic period. The theatrical display also features 20 life-size and frightening life-like models of the long-extinct creatures and during their nationwide tour the dinosaurs took a stroll at the O2 Arena, London from 26 December 2012 to 6 January 2013 and at the Wembley Arena, the dinosaurs walked from 1 May to 6 May 2013. The Wembley Arena is London’s second largest indoor arena after The O2 and its sheer size makes it an exciting place to watch the monstrous creatures.
