Dinosaurs will once again roam Australian soil when the spectacular production, Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, returns in 2015.

Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular will commence it’s strictly limited tour in Sydney and then take over arenas in Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Adelaide & Perth.

Worldwide, more than 8 million people in 243 cities have seen the show and in 2010 it was named the Number One worldwide tour by POLLSTAR. Internationally renowned designers have worked with scientists to create 20 life-size dinosaurs, including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus-rex! It’s a dazzling $20 million arena spectacle of unprecedented size and quality set to captivate young and old alike.

This updated production will showcase spectacular and colourful changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species.

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. 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 period. The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus, is 36 feet tall and 56 feet from nose to tail. It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic. Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire — all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.

The show originated in Australia, where after years of planning, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS – THE ARENA SPECTACULAR came to life at Sydney’s Acer Arena in January 2007. Soon after this successful season, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR went on to conquer Europe and Asia garnering record-breaking statistics.
