Walking with Dinosaurs coming to O2 Arena

A show based on the BBC series has been seen by 9 million people worldwide

Giant, life-sized prehistoric reptile replicas star in Walking with Dinosaurs, a stage spectacular that will be at Prague’s O2 Arena for three shows on Jan. 18 and 19, 2019. Tickets go on sale April 17 on the Ticketportal network.

Promoters are billing this s the last chance to see the show, and urge people to get tickets before they “become extinct.”

Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular made its debut in 2007 and made several tours since then, It is back for a limited run in the UK and Europe starting in this summer.

Over 9 million people in more than 250 cities around the world have seen the show, which runs one hour and 40 minutes.

“Be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before your eyes,” the shows description states.

The production cost $20 million to create and uses 18 fully animated dinosaur replicas that rely on puppetry and animatronics. The species include raptors, a stegosaurus, a juvenile and an adult Tyrannosaurus rex and many others.

“Marvel at the story of their 200-million-year reign on earth, as the continents split and the show transitions from the Triassic to Jurassic eras. Watch them walk, hear them roar, and see their fight for survival and supremacy depicted in almost cinematic realism in front of you,” the description states.

The large dinosaurs each weigh several tons and are operated by a three-person team with two above and one below. Inside the frame, there are pistons, cords and car batteries. There fold up like Transformer robots so they can be shipped from venue to venue.

Smaller dinosaurs are operated by one person inside a detailed suit.

Based on new research, some of the dinosaurs now have feathers but in the original shows, they did not.

The show is based on the BBC television series that ran for six episodes in 1999.
