Chillin’ with Las Vegas Dinosaurs

Tomorrow, 200-million-year-old knock-off dinosaurs will be roaring and grazing in Las Vegas.    Amazingly, they won’t be looking for tasty prey by lounging in Las Vegas nightclubs.  

Internationally renowned designers have worked with scientists to create 15 life-size dinosaurs and present them in a live stadium show, Walking with Dinosaurs.  The show follows the dinosaurs’ domination of life on earth, including showcasing the supreme terror of the ancient terrain, Tyrannosaurus Rex, fighting for survival and supremacy.  

Viewers watch the curious beasts walk and hear their roars in the show comprised of two acts, 40 minutes each, blending technology, natural history, art, and music.

 And, parents, there is no gore or actual violence, so take your kids, especially appropriate if they’re 6-to-12-year-olds.  Home schoolers can use it as a science/natural history lesson. Though there is plenty of tension – heightened by appropriate music that is often quite lovely – the dinosaurs have apparently been sedated, or at least had their fill of humans because they don’t lunge at anyone. The nightmare factor is pretty low. 

The show is at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, March 24 – 28. Tickets range in price from $27 to $70 each. Tickets: 739-FANS (3267) or 1-866-388-FANS (3267).
