If you get tickets for up near the stage there's a chance the dinosaurs will come up and interact with you at some point, including a 16-feet high T-Rex that's currently in development (not pictured).

The T-Rex in development will also be fast, moving from the back of the stage to the front of the performance floor in about 16 seconds... and keep in mind this is in an arena.

The movements of the dinosaurs were based on the CGI movements in the movies, and what we saw in the demo was pretty impressive.

The stage is 140 feet long by 80 feet wide, and features a projection screen in back. The storyline is a standalone script that doesn't require familiarity with the films to be enjoyed.

"Dinoteers" must prove their athleticism, improv skills, and of course, puppeteering ability. Jessica Ferris and Ryan Coules of the casting team demonstrate one of the trials they put actors through.
