The ultra-realistic Walking with Dinosaurs show will have Kids either cowering or shrieking in excitement + GIVEAWAY!

Media Invite

If you have been keeping up with the news the past weekend, you will know that the dinosaurs are in town. Walking with Dinosaurs - The Live Experience was last staged in Singapore in 2010 and back then, I brought Ash and Ayd to the show - Ale was still an infant - and they absolutely loved it.


Fast forward nine years later, did they still enjoy it? Well in all honesty, they did find some parts a little draggy but I did notice a difference... when they first caught the show in 2010, they were young kids and were very much in awe of the giant dinosaurs stomping around in the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Now, they were keeping an eye out for the animatronics used in the movement of the dinosaurs!


Yes, [SPOILER ALERT] the dinosaurs are NOT real. πŸ˜‚ The larger dinos such as Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus are animatronic, while the smaller creatures such as the fierce Utahraptor and baby T-rex are crew members in dino suits.


But try telling that to the young kids in the audience.


The movement of the life-sized dinosaurs are so realistic that they will be able to suspend belief just for that 1.5 hours, seeing them running, roaring, fighting and of course, walking as if dinosaurs were never extinct in the first place.




The show focuses on the three periods of the dinosaurs' reign; the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. A palaeontologist named Huxley adds context to the action by imparting various facts and nuggets of information, adding educational value to the spectacle.




And here's a tip: I would totally recommend getting the front row seats in the middle section if your kids are huge fans of dinosaurs. That's because a real highlight of the show were two life-size Brachiosaurus' leaning over the crowd, delighting the audience.



Despite knowing they were only animatronic dinosaurs, this scene gave me goosbumps.

Oh, and of course, what's a dino show without the Tyrannosaurus rex, which is saved for last. It too makes a stop right in front of the audience, letting out a mighty roar.


And let me just say it was so super realistic that a little girl in the audience broke into tears. Oops. But then, we also see the other type of kids - kids who raise their hands up and roar right back!


So while kids will certainly have an absolute blast at Walking With Dinosaurs – The Live Experience, it is not just for the little ones. The craftsmanship, puppetry and sound effects are excellent.



And with a perfect blend of awesome special effects and interesting scientific details, Walking With Dinosaurs - The Live Experience is a sheer spectacle that will have the kids shrieking in excitement.

It’s a good exposure and experience for both adults and children to get close to the dinosaurs. We will get to observe the behaviours and its living in the pre-historic times. Hope to win this!

Hi, hope to win the tickets so that I can show my kids life sized dinosaurs as they have only seen the dinosaurs on tv. They can also hear the dinosaurs roar in front of them.It will be a great experience for them as my husband and I keep telling them that dinosaurs do not exist now. And can't wait to see my kids' reaction if they are able to see these dinosaurs. :)

I would like to win the tickets for my boy. He is so craze for dino! Be it movie,toys,story books etc as long he saw dino, he will says ‘can I buy?’ But due to hubby is only sole breadwinner, our budget is rather tight to get the best tickets for him. Hence trying my lady luck here to win for him. :) He would be thrilled if he really gets to see the walking dino in front of him! a great birthday present for him too! Thank Cheekiemonkies & Sliding Doors Entertainment for the awesome giveaway!

Hi. I was so excited to see this post although i know many will comment on this too. I have never won anything from your post but i will try my luck. My twin boys love dinasours a lot and they're a Jurassic Park fan too. They have been wanting to go for this and have been bugging us everytime they saw the advertisement on tv. But we ignore and kept quiet about it as we couldn't afford to buy the tickets. I kept looking at Carousell but tickets are pricey too. I hope i could grant their wish and make them happy. This will be a memorable moment for them.

Being a mum of 2 boys aged 8 and 6, i terribly need to be educated and hold "intelligent dino conversations" with my young charges. They amaze me with their keen observations about things dino. Help me spring this surprise on them!

Vo said...

This giveaway got me excited! My boys will be thrilled to see live sized dinosaurs in action. It will be a good chance to unwind after the CAs... thank you kelvin

The Mommy said...

Hope to win this for my boy as a surprise birthday present for him . At the same time would also like to bring my nephews who adore dinosaurs.

@mama_lynnong said...

Hope to win this giveaway cos my 5yo loves dinosaurs so much that he can name all the characteristics of the dinosaurs.
πŸ™‹πŸ™‹Pls let me win. Tnx so much for the giveaway.

Rissie said...

Hope to win this so my husband and the 2 boys can get a chance to go for the show and experience a walk with the dinosaurs. Thank you.

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Would love to have the chance to surprise my 2 little ones who had been bugging us to bring them for the show since the first time seeing its advertisement. It is a surprise coming from my timid girl and high chance that she might be one of those whom you encountered, who will cry, when the dinosaurs come near.

However the tickets will take a toll on our pockets and being sensible, they actually asked if they can do for the cheaper alternative instead, which is DinoQuest but still, there is no budget for these as we had been travelling very often to visit my aging father / their grandpa who is alone overseas and is too stubborn to come back to live with us after my mum passed away there.

Ultimately it is still more meaningful to be spending money and time with our love ones, isn’t it? But the ironic part is, it is always a joy to bring double smiles to the kiddos, hence here we are trying for a chance to win the tickets to make their wishes come true~
Thanks for this once again!

The dinosaur look so real. It's so educational and interesting. Not only suitable for children but also adults

Hi Kelvin,

Thank you for your awesome write-up on the show. My boys, 6yo and 2yo are dying to watch the show. Both boys are Dino-fanatics who reads up all about Dino, plays only with Dino toys, wear only clothes with Dino prints, listen to only Dino music, watch only Dino TV shows, talks about Dino all the time.. It has reached a point that they start educating us about the differences between the dino, which is the biggest dino, which is the fastest, which cares for their eggs, which likes to eat the eggs, which are herbivores/carnivores, which is the heaviest etc etc. Each time their eyes will be beaming with excitement. Would really love to bring them for the show, if not for my budget constraints. Really hope to win this for them, which is just nice for our family of 4. It will also be a great birthday present for my little one who is turning 3 this month.

Thank you!! πŸ™πŸ»

Cheers,
Jiahui

I hope to win this because my boys love dinosaurs and i hope that they can have a special school holiday.

Ludy Hoza said...

Hope to win this and bring my birthday girl to the show. It will be a great show to educate the kids and to teach them about dinosaurs and there are many types of them. We have dinosaurs book that my eldest girl love to read. But to watch them LIVE is a wonderful and magnificent experience for the kids. We are thrilled.

Goh Sze Wei said...

6 Sep? It's my son's 7th birthday! He's been pestering me to bring him for the show ever since he saw the ad on TV months ago... He's a mega dino fan (and his elder bro too!), and know the names of all the dinosaurs. Really hope to win this and give him a huge surprise for his birthday!

Xiuwen said...

This is the chance for my 4 years old son to witness the spectacular live sized dinosaurs that he always watch on TV ! His favourite dinosaurs are Raptor, Tyrannosaurus Rex and triceratops. He could watch the documentary on dinosaurs for hours! He loves to imitate as a dinosaur. Hence I really hope that I have the opportunity to introduce "Dinosaurs roaming on Earth" to him, so he can meet his other "half"

The visuals are amazing! My two kids have been obsessed with dinosaurs since they were as young as 3. They will be SO happy if they get to attend the show. Purchasing tickets for the whole family is difficult for us. So thank you for this giveaway opportunity! :) Liked and shared on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nurainiosman)
