Performance Puppetronics of 'W W Dinosaurs Arena'

How would you react to a dinosaur puppet so convincing it looks and behaves like the real deal?

Watch this video and see how a shopping mall crowd handles something from 'Walking With Dinosaurs the Arena Spectacular'...

I guess with a live show like this, unlike a movie, video game or T.V. production, you can't fall back on CGI. You have to solve the problem of doing in live. The company that built the dinos appears to be "Creature Technology" from Down Under.

They also are doing a live "King Kong" show and a live show based on "How To Train Your Dragon".

The video on the home page says that the show has been in development for 4 years, which would date back to before the release of the movie.
