Walking with Dinosaurs

Yesterday we attended the Walking with Dinosaurs show at Copps Colliseum. The show was fantastic and the dinosaurs so realistic! These gigantic creatures were made to life size and moved around the arena as if they were alive. To experience this amazing show was one that I am glad I didn't miss.

What can I say about the show? To begin with I must admit that I wasn't entirely sure what it was going to be all about. There was one man on the arena floor who was the narrator, telling us the story of the dinosaurs through the eyes of a Paleontologist. He walks around the arena, amongst the dinosaurs as he tells their story.

The narrative is very educational and yet not boring at all. There are lots of great pieces of information that take you through all 3 ages of dinosaurs, being that of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. As the story is told, you learn more about different species of dinosaur and what it would have been like for it to walk the earth. You learn about their size, what they ate and who their enemies were.Although I studied dinosaurs as a child, I was still very fascinated with the show. It really brought to light what life on earth before man would have been like. To see these creatures roaming the floor, brought a realization that we are lucky they do not still exist. They certainly are a fascinating creature, and to have managed to survive through the different changes the earth had taken, simply is amazing.

If you ever get the chance to see this show, I would recommend it. Children of all ages will love it!
