Walking with Dinosaurs coming to Key Arena


You guys. In less than a week, there will be dinosaurs in Key Arena. Dinosaurs.

Walking with Dinosaurs is an adaptation of the BBC series, although I’m not sure “adaptation” is a big enough word when we’re talking about turning a tv program into life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. In Key Arena. Putting on a show. “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. The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.” Each large dinosaur takes a team of three people to run.

The show is 96 minutes long, with intermission, and recommended for ages 3 to 93. It runs from April 29 – May 3 , with three performances on Saturday and two on Sunday. Reviews of the show’s narration are running to the lukewarm, but reviews of the dinosaurs themselves are rave. Tickets, through Ticketmaster, look to be running between $25 and $70.
