The show chronicles the different historical periods of dinosaurs and the narrator was on stage walking among the dinosaurs as he told their story - and at times even interacting with them. From having a person on stage, we in the audience could see just how huge most of these creatures were and how much work must have went into the construction and animation.
The 90 minute show was amazing to see! My son was forever saying "Mom, Look at That", "Mom Wow!", "Mom, This is Cool!". We were sitting in the middle of the arena and had great seats, but I think the closer seats had the best experience overall. The dinosaurs would come the edge where people were sitting and roar at them. It was fabulous!
Photos and video really cannot capture even part of this visual experience. You really have to see it for yourself. It is a once in a lifetime experience for sure!
Isn't it Cool! "Walking with Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular" is at Cobo Arena through Sunday, January 3, 2010.
