event at the Impact Arena in Bangkok from November 17-21.
Internationally renowned designers have worked with
scientists to create 15 life-size dinosaurs, the largest being a long-necked
Brachiosaurus that measures the length of two city buses and stands more
than 11 meters tall. And no dinosaur show would be complete without the king
of predators - the terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex!
The promotional flyer promises that the “Walking with
Dinosaurs, the Live Experience” is “the closest you’ll ever get to
experiencing what it was like when dinosaurs walked the earth. Audiences can
expect to be amazed and thrilled as the largest creatures ever to walk the
earth return before their eyes.”
The show is a dazzling multi-million dollar arena
spectacle of unprecedented size and quality set to captivate both young and
old alike. Spectators will marvel at the story of the dinosaurs’ 200 million
year domination of life on earth. Watch them walk. Hear the roar. Be there
as they fight for survival and supremacy. From the ripple of their skin to
the glint in their eye, you will know the dinosaurs really have returned!
Tickets for this award winning show are priced from 500
baht to 2,000 baht and can be purchased in advance from website www.

subtitles and vice versa.
