Walking With Dinosaurs, The Arena Spectacular opened in Southern California at The Honda Center in Anaheim on Wednesday night, and it’s coming to Staples Center this week! (I have passes to giveaway!)
Knowing what I did about this production, I let the kids watch YouTube videos from the show, so they knew what it was going to be like. I also wanted to feel out my 4 year old daughter, knowing also that she might be a little too scared to take to something so enormous in size…pun intended.
Ultimately, I left the 4 year old at a friends house Wednesday night as the older two and I were privileged enough to come check out the show before it crawls into Staples Center September 11-14th.
As the adult sitting next to the kids, I was absolutely blown away by things they surely weren’t paying attention to. The set design, the original score (which only makes it scarier), and the absolute breathtaking dinosaurs! They’re huge! Some are computer controlled, others, like the raptors and baby TRex are small enough for people to fit in, like puppets.
This show is amazing. Both for kids and adults alike. You or your kids might want to run screaming from the arena, but let me encourage you…stay! If you’re brave, I would recommend sitting on the main floor of this show! But event the nosebleeds give you such an amazing view. Another tip… try sitting facing the show from the front, there is a flying dinosaur act that is breathtaking with a moving screen show behind it. The best seats would be straight on. But we were not straight on and still had a fantastic experience. My kids have already asked to go back this week!
Walking With Dinosaurs opens this Thursday, September 11th at Staples Center for a run of 8 shows this weekend. Go see this show while it’s here!

Stegosaurus, you can’t go wrong with a dinosaur with a brain in his butt.
Becky Brandon says
I’m in love with the Brontosaurus, because, I’m pretty sure that’s the outdated version. I enjoy the story of getting the wrong head on the wrong body. Fantastic! I wonder what else we’ll find out in the next decade or century.

My son’s favorite dinosaur is the coveted THREE HORN!, aka, triceratops. He is 4 years old and is going to be a paleontologist!!!
Thanks for offering this contest.
Mandi Marcus says
T-Rex is their favorite!!
Thanks for the giveaway. I think my son Luke would love this so much. His current favorite is the t-rex because “it roars the loudest.” Haha. Little boys are awesome.
