It was Benjamin Franklin, one of America's Founding Fathers, who once said that there are two certainties in life: Death and taxes. However, had he lived long enough to witness the first ever discovery of dinosaur remains in the mid-19th century, he may well have added a third to his list: Kids' love of dinosaurs.
It's their undying adoration of these supreme creatures that has assured the continued success of Walking With Dinosaurs, a show born out of the BBC TV series of the same name that first aired in 1999.
The highly acclaimed Walking With Dinosaurs show brings the dinosaurs back to life (not literally, you understand – that would be just weird, not to mention extremely scary).
Twenty life-size creatures, including the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex, will dazzle and delight as they stomp around Wembley Arena (each operated by a team of three humans). "Watch them walk. Hear them roar," it says on the show's website.
The Walking With Dinosaurs show, which cost a staggering £10 million to create, is massively popular wherever it goes, with more than seven million people around the world having so far gone along to enjoy the spectacle.
Costing between £29 and £49, tickets don't come cheap, but be sure to check out the family ticket options which offer some reasonable savings over individual tickets.
Walking With Dinosaurs takes place at Wembley Arena from 1st to 6th May, 2013. It's fair to say that it should make for one of the most memorable day trips of the year.
