Walking with Dinosaurs Show Review: Massive & Fun for all Ages

Days back, we got the chance to see Walking with Dinosaurs at Honda Center and had a really good time. Our kids were so excited to see the show upon hearing about it. At first we were actually a little concerned that the show might be a little scary for the little ones, but it turned out to be just right for my 3 and 6 year olds.

The show was well scripted and it captured the kids’ attention the entire time. All the dinosaurs were well made and actually had distinctive display feathers, head crests and tail fans, reflecting recent discoveries about the physical nature of these dinosaurs. They also sounded very real, which brought the show to life. 

The show took us through different periods and showed how the earth and the dinosaurs adapted to earths' changes including an interesting scene where the Ornithocheirus was looking for land during the period when the earth was shifting and new land masses formed.

Ten species were represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. My daughters’ favorite part was when the T-rex baby was being attacked and called for its mother and the big mommy T-rex came to the rescue. While my son enjoyed more of the action scenes like when the Torosaurus were defending their territory and the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus were chasing each other.

I found out that it actually took a team of 50 - including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painteri, and animatronic experts - a year to build the production. They definitely delivered and so it is a show you wouldn't want to miss.

The whole family enjoyed the show very much. If you want to learn more about the dinosaurs before they were forced to extinction by a massive comet. See Walking with Dinosaurs with the family. They will still be playing at Staples Center from September 11-14.
