When Walking with Dinosaurs first came to Montreal five years ago I went to see a performance at the BellCentre. I must say I have always been fascinated with the fact that these creatures once roamed the earth and for that reason I loved the show Land of The Lost as a kid and saw all of the Jurassic Park movies.
Well the show was quite spectacular. In fact it does not take long to believe that you are seeing real dinosaurs.
Following a strong first world tour in 2009, eight million people have seen one of 2,000 performances in 243 cities.Walking With Dinosaurs the Arena Spectacular will be back for a limited time, from August 13 to 17(English shows on the 14th at 7 p.m. and the 17th at 11 a.m.) at the Bell Centre.
The show is factual, exploring the evolution of dinosaurs while discussing the impacts of climate and geographical shifts which led to their extinction, which are presented via a narrator. Since the show’s initial run, a new mainstream discovery has changed the way we think of dinosaurs: they had feathers!
There are 20 life-size dinosaurs, including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus rex! Be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before your eyes.
The show also includes 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 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.
