Walking with Dinosaurs

January 31, 2009

Sue, Kelli, Kaldun and I went downtown last night for some food and to see a show at the BOK Center.  Turns out we couldn’t get any food because everywhere was a 45 minute wait, but the show was awesome.  Walking With Dinosaurs is a live action show with costumes for smaller animals and animatronics for the giants.  Not lame costumes or cornball robots – it was VERY well done. The biggest creature was either the brontosaurs at 40 feet tall or the T-Rex.

Each animal was fully articulate. The muscles moved when it walked. The tail counter balanced. The head, eyes, mouth, nostrils and skin moved and jiggled. Dang cool.   The plants would grow and wilt, flowers came into being at a certain point.  All around interesting stuff IMHO.  We sat in the lower section (hot linked photo, we didn’t take any) so the big ones towered above us.

The basic story line was a paleontologist going through the history of dinosaurs from the first species to when they went extent.About 150,000,000 years of history.Various light shows, projected scenes, and live action animals interacted on about 2/3rd of a hockey rink. It was very cool and educational to a large degree. We all loved it and I would recommend it for kids Kalduns age.
