Walking With Dinosaurs at The O2

Those two over there are definitely real‘ said Alfie (6). I almost started to believe him. Last night at the O2, we traveled through time with dinosaurs and it was epic. As well as a visually stunning show the audience were treated to a fascinating history lesson on the moving continents and life in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

The kids were wowed by the stories and the changing vegetation but the real stars of the show were the dinosaurs. They really were truly awesome. Despite what you might expect there was very little screaming coming from the audience, the kids (and adults) were so gobsmacked by the giant Stegosaurus and the three mischievous Raptors that the atmosphere was eerily calm. It was indeed the calm before the storm.

When Tyrannosaurus Rex came out the whole audience gasped in unison, as though on queue. She was magnificent, it was fascinating to see her up close and to hear her almighty roar. It capped off a truly magical night that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
