VIDEO: ‘Walking with Dinosaurs – Arena Spectacular’ comes to NYC
After traveling 243 cities worldwide, “Walking with Dinosaurs – Arena Spectacular” is finally making its way to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (July 16-20).
Based on the award-winning BBC television series of the same name, this live show cost $20 million to create and features moving, roaring dinosaurs in their actual size. They’re so huge, in fact, that it takes three human operators per one dinosaur.
Science meets spectacle in a show that spans the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic periods. Children and adults alike can learn how they lived and, ultimately, went extinct in this sweeping saga that’s “65 million years in the making.”
For a sneak peek of the production, tune into “Good Morning America” from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday. The Baby Tyrannosaurus Rex — made with a combination of mechanics and puppetry — is taking over Central Park in coordination with the GMA Concert Series and special musical guest Keith Urban.
If you can’t make the Barclays Center schedule, the show will also play the Prudential Center in New Jersey (July 23-27). Learn more and buy tickets here.
