The State Fair is going prehistoric … sort of. Today, RBC Center officials held a press conference to announce the upcoming “Walking with Dinosaurs — The Live Experience,” which will take place Oct. 22-26. The State Fair and the folks at the RBC Center are partnering on a promotion, and it means a good deal for people interested in both dinosaurs and the fair. Anybody who buys a ticket to “WWD” will get free admission to the fair (for info on “WWD” tickets, go to http://www.rbccenter.com/).
Here’s a description of the show from the “WWD” press kit:
A team of master puppeteers operates each of the Dinosaurs via the use of new
and special technologies invented just to bring them to life. The sights, sounds
and subtleties of movement will make you feel that you are looking at real
I was at the media sneak-peek today, and though we didn’t get to see these life-size creations up close (we saw a video instead), I have to say the show looks pretty impressive. Using top-notch robotic mechanical devices and human puppetry, this show really brings these creatures to life. The wow factor will be huge, especially for kids.
