Based on the award-winning BBC Television series, the show is a USD 20 million production featuring updated, state-of-the-art technology since it opened its latest world tour in the UK last July, underlining its position as the biggest and best dinosaur show in the world. It showcases spectacular and colourful changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species.

The show is produced by Global Creatures headed by CEO Carmen Pavlovic. He says: "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, and these are based on recent discoveries about the physical nature of these massive creatures. This show remains a must-see for audiences of all ages."

The one hour and 40 minutes production is said to depict the dinosaurs' evolution with almost cinematic realism, including scenes of the interactions between them, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Nine species are represented from their entire 200-million-year reign. 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 Cretaceous period. The largest on display, the Brachiosaurus, is 11 metres tall and 17 metres from nose to tail. It took a team of 50 people – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists, painters and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of Earth's continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic. Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire – all leading to the impact of the massive comet that apparently struck the Earth and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.

The show originated from Australia, where after years of planning and work it came to life in January 2007, going on to fascinate the world with large audiences. The Budapest Arena shows in 2010 were sold out.
