The monster-sized treat, which aims to astound, thrill and educate, is based on the award-winning BBC TV series, featuring real-size dinosaurs.

The star is the adult T-Rex, at 23ft tall and 42ft long, weighing the equivalent of a family car. A formidable sight, its muscles ripple as it walks and its amplified footsteps are terrifying.

Get too close and you can almost smell on its breath the raptors it ate for breakfast!

Due to overwhelming popular demand, Global Creatures in association with BBC Worldwide are bringing the spectacular back to life, featuring the prehistoric beasts of unmatched realism roaming the stage and capturing the imaginations of young and old.

Audiences watch as the story of their 200 million year domination unfolds.

They see them walk, hear them roar and come face to face as they fight for survival and supremacy.

From the ripple of their skin to the glint in their eye, you will know the dinosaurs really have returned.

Global Creatures CEO Carmen Pavlovic told The Star: “The BBC Series was a brilliant blend of special effects, escapism, excitement and information. To bring this TV event into the third dimension on stage with life-size dinosaurs, we created a £12.5 million spectacle so immense that it can only fit into arenas.”  

A landmark in family entertainment, Walking with Dinosaurs has already been seen by more than seven million people in 206 cities across the world.

Ranked number four  in Pollstar’s top 100 worldwide tours, their phenomenal global success is credited to the pioneering work of a long-serving and passionate production team.

Bringing to life 20 to-scale dinosaurs night after night, this is a technological feat of epic proportions.
