"Walking With Dinosaurs" Exhibit

Another interesting travelling science exhibit...
'Walking With Dinosaurs' opens in Wash.

Are you brave enough to share an evening in the forest with a bunch of life-size dinosaurs with 6-inch teeth? How about spending time with a walking, growling 45-foot tall, 75-foot long Brachiosaurus that seems to be looking around for its next meal — perhaps among the spectators at "Walking With Dinosaurs," which opens its North American tour on July 11 in Tacoma...

The show, based on the award-winning BBC Television series, is supposed to be educational and fun. The story, which travels 200 million years from Triassic to the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, features 15 life-size dinosaurs from 10 species, including a mother Tyrannosaurus Rex and her baby... the 90-minute show was developed with $20 million over six years in Australia and had never played outside that continent...

Read the news story in its entirety: Walking With Dinosaurs' opens in Wash.

After Tacoma, the show moves to Spokane, and then to Edmonton, St. Louis, Toronto, Philadelphia and Columbus. Wish it was going to more cities. It's being billed as a family show, but the ticket prices aren't exactly "family friendly": $34.50 to $79.50 for adults, and $24.50 to $79.50 for kids 12 and under and seniors. But it still sounds fun.
