Dinosaurs once again roam the earth when the spectacular production, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR, based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, returns to North America this summer.

WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR will be performed at Quicken Loans Arena from a limited 8-performance engagement from Wednesday, July 9th through Sunday, July 13th. Tickets are on sale now at theqarena.com, by calling 888-894-9424, at the Quicken Loans Arena box office and at all northern Ohio Discount Drug Marts.

The show that critics have called ‘awesome,’ ‘spectacular’ and ‘breathtaking’ will commence a new tour in Cleveland from July 9-13, 2014. This updated production will showcase changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species. Worldwide, more than eight million people have seen this show in 243 cities and over 2,000 performances.

WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR is produced by Global Creatures headed by CEO Carmen Pavlovic. Pavlovic said, “I am thrilled that WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR is coming back to the US in July - its first visit to North America since its inaugural 2007 sell-out tour. A new generation is ready to experience these life–size beasts in this awe-inspiring spectacle, which has still not been matched in terms of scale and quality. Many of our creatures have “evolved” since the last tour, now featuring distinctive display feathers, head crests and tail fans, reflecting recent discoveries about the physical nature of these massive creatures. This show remains a must-see for audiences of all ages.”

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the awesome Cretaceous period. The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail. It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

One species covered in the Arena Spectacular is the Allosaurus!

Allosaurus (meaning “Other reptile”) was one of the largest carnivores of the Jurassic period. Running on two muscular, bird-like legs, Allosaurus preyed upon the large herbivores of the period, including large sauropods and smaller plant eaters. It may have been a pack hunter, possibly lying in wait to ambush prey.

The forelimbs were short but muscular, each of the three fingers tipped with a sharp curved claw up to 25cm (10 inches) long for holding prey.

The powerful jaws were lined with over seventy sharp 8cm (3 inch) long teeth. Movable joints and elastic ligaments in Allosaurus’s jaw and skull flexed to help the teeth tear and slice through the prey. The flexible jaws stretched widely to allow the creature to swallow large mouthfuls of flesh
