If I Could Walk With the Animals

Your ten-year-old self is about to get freaked right out: Walking With Dinosaurs is coming to town. Based on the BBC television series of the same name, the ninety-minute show features fifteen horrifyingly lifelike animatronic dinosaurs walking around, roaring, hanging out with other dinosaurs—you know, doing dinosaur stuff. It’s a little tough to describe without seeing yourself, so check this video out. (You may have also seen dinosaurs from the show on Jeopardy or Regis and Kelly.)
The show runs for eight performances from June 18–22, and since it’s at the Air Canada Centre, you won’t be doing the “walking” part of the title yourself. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be ecstatic the whole way through: as the show is primarily concerned with showing off the evolution of the animals, dinosaurs from each major period are represented, meaning the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, and Utahraptor—among many others—all make appearances. Tickets (once you use this snazzy $5 off ecard) go from $15–$80. You can buy ’em through Ticketmaster—one dinosaur we’d gladly see go extinct.
