Walk with Dinosaurs plans London return


The popular Walking with Dinosaurs is returning to London’s O2 Arena next month.

Families booking central London hotels over New Year could be tempted to buy tickets to the amazing event, which will take place from December 26th until January 6th.

Created as a result of the successful BBC series in 1999, Walking with Dinosaurs uses high-tech puppetry to create life size dinosaurs, which people can walk amongst. In total, 20 creatures are used in the event and it is the perfect after-Christmas treat.

The dinosaurs roaming around include a giant brachiosaurus, which measures 36 feet tall and 56 feet long from nose to tail, as well as an allosaurus and an utahraptor, plus a 20 foot tyrannosaurus rex.

Walking with Dinosaurs has impressed audiences from around the world and has enjoyed successful tours of Australia and the US since it was first launched in 2009.

The latest tour took place in Belfast in September and CultureNorthernIreland.org said: “It’s a masterfully put-together production. The lighting, the sound effects, the John Williams-esque score and an involving stage set make for eye-candy on a grand scale.”

“With their rippling skin, snorting nostrils and blinking eyes, the dinosaurs are extremely realistic,” the website added.

Tickets for the event are on sale now and cost from £29 to £49, with family tickets and group rates available. It is expected that Walking with Dinosaurs will be very popular so people are being advised to book now to avoid disappointment.

It has also been confirmed that the Walking with Dinosaurs experience will also return to London in May 2013 for a repeat performance at Wembley.
