    It takes about 3-4 people to work one of these dinos, but they sure are awesome and real looking. Now if ONLY haunts could get things like this in there shows. Too expensive, I know, but it would be schweeet.

    In the video you'll see something between his legs, thats where the actor goes to drive the dino. Then there are 2-3 people up in the balcony controlling the body movement and sound. Very realistic and cool.





    This video is 8 minutes, but shows many different dinos other than T-Rex

    Dude that is amazing. Do you know where these were shown or who built them? I guess all the audio and air equipment is onboard. Im sure it has to pull an electrical cord around though! Oh i wish someone would go ahead and invent wireless power!

    They were built for the Discovery Channel's "Walking With Dinosaurs" live show.

    Yes, it is Walk With Dinosaurs and they have a 20 million dollar budget.

    With 20 mil, that would be one hell of a haunted house.

    Sort of like seeing a really crappy movie, hearing it had a 20 million dollar budget ...then thinking that same thing, "I could have had a V-8- hell of a haunted house for half that money!"

    Wow, that's a lot of money to spend on something that looks cool but not really very convincing. The walk isn't right. I came across something on youtube a while back and was always impressed by it. I haven't been able to find a use for an elephant yet but can see other possibilities in their design. It's pretty convincing and looks like it didn't cost too much.

    I'm not sure how to post the youtube window on here so I'll just post the link:
