Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular 
Wembley Arena

Review by Unsa Chaudri

Be prepared to be amazed!

Creatures of a mystical nature, dinosaurs are animals that have long fascinated the young and adults alike and Global Creatures, in association with the BBC worldwide, invites us to experience what life was like for those who walked the earth millions of years ago.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was drawn to the posters dotted around London and I was not disappointed.

The show starts with the birth of small ‘vegetarian’ dinosaurs, as one by one they begin to hatch. Huxley, the palaeontologist then introduces us to a predator, one who is very hungry and so the journey of the dinosaurs begins.

The thing that most struck me was the attention to detail. Each and every dinosaur, plant, rock and every part of the set was intricately designed.
The dinosaurs moved with agility and such precision that you could almost believe you were seeing the real deal. To anyone with a bit of imagination, it seems as if you have been catapulted back to when the dinosaurs walked the earth and you are a spectator watching them in their habitat.

As each dinosaur brings the arena alive, Huxley commentates, educating the audience, reminding us or explaining for the first time what the dinosaurs are called, what their characteristics are, amongst many other interesting facts.

The music and lighting only help add to the atmosphere, the arena spectacular lives up to the name – it truly is spectacular.

I would recommend Walking with Dinosaurs to anyone who wants to find out more about dinosaurs or anyone who wants to be amazed by technology.
