Walking with Dinosaurs

Events Families - June 20th, 2013

The cretaceous, jurassic and triassic period arena spectacular based on the TV show is back in Kanto this summer, with stints at both the Saitama Super Arena and Yokohama Arena coming soon.

The creatures have performed to around 7 million people around the world to date, with almost 2,000 shows in over 200 countries, and while paleontologists’ knowledge has moved on since the post-Jurassic Park mainstream dino boom of the 90s, there’s still plenty of action here that can teach you a thing or two.

The six-arena tour will head off around Japan throughout the summer, taking us through the ages and bringing the family-heavy crowds as close to the action as they might have imagined after watching the DVDs (not too close to bedtime, we hope) with educational tidbits and a sack full of merch thrown in for good measure.

Yokohama Arena: July 12-15

Saitama Super Arena: August 1-7
