Will You Be 'Walking With Dinosaurs'?

Dinosaurs once again roam the earth in a spectacular theatrical arena show, Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, and coming to the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence on Wednesday, June 23.

Internationally renowned designers have worked with scientists to create 15 life-size dinosaurs - including the terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus Rex. Audiences are amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before their eyes. The largest creature is 72 feet from nose to tail; the T-Rex is 18 feet tall at the shoulder!

It’s a dazzling 10 million pound arena spectacle of unprecedented size and quality, set to captivate young and old alike. The show combines of a rich sensory experience woven into a story of dinosaurs' 200 million year domination of life on earth. Watch them walk. Hear the roar.
