We’ve already mentioned Walking with Dinosaurs before, but having now seen the show, I just want to say… it is A-MAZING! Seriously, that’s probably even an understatement. Definitely a must see. If you don’ already have tickets, buy them today! (Tickets range from $22.50 -$79 & can be purchased at the Honda Center Box Office, online at Ticketmaster or any Ticketmaster outlet.)
I took my 3 kids & I have to admit that I was a bit nervous. They are 5, 3 & 1 – I was worried that it would be too scary or over their heads. I couldn’t have been more wrong. From the moments the lights dimmed in the arena, ALL of my kids (including the baby) were absolutely captivated (although a bag of popcorn, a pretzel & a churro helped things for sure.) The show tells the story of the dinosaurs’ evolution, including climatic & environmental changes that earth went through. Right before your very eyes you watch as the earth’s continents split, amazing gardens grow, oceans forming, volcanoes erupt, forests catch on fire & of course – the infamous comet. You get to experience all this, live & in-person. Not to mention the 17 roaring, snarling “live” dinosaurs that will mesmerize you & your kids.
My kids LOVED it, heck, I LOVED it. They weren’t scared at all. There was lots of loud noises (um, roaring dinosaurs, hello?!), & the lighting fluctuated. But my kids didn’t seem to mind one bit. In fact, they were sitting on the edge of their sits, in absolute awe & amazement. In fact, as we left the arena, my boys were asking when we could see it again. The show is just about 2 hours long, with a perfectly placed intermission. & If you are worried about bedtime for your little ones, there are several showtimes available, including 11am, 1pm, 3pm & 5pm.
This experience is one that your entire family will be talking about for a long time. It’s perfect for kids & adults of all ages. It’s a fabulous opportunity that is both educational & entertaining. By the end of the performance you will have literally travelled through time, learning about the dinosaurs first hand
