    Those are very cool, but it looks exhausting for the puppeteers. Also: no feathers! Where are the feathers?

    Hey! is this a creationist theme park?

    At first i was like OMFG NO WAI!!! but then i saw the legs and was like awww.... I was hoping that they were robotic, that would have been badass... Then again, that would probably cost millions and millions of dollars to make.

    Those are sweet as hell. Yes, they are costumes, but still, their movements are amazingly lifelike. There is a show they put on in arenas. Robots still couldn`t move as organically (nor as safely around children).

    I`m NOT disappointed because they are awesome. Its called suspension of disbelief, GET IT!

    Velociraptors were tiny, Evil Eye, it`s impossible to fit an average adult human into one. And not every dinosaur was a velociraptor. I like to think that at least one of these in the clip is an erectopus. Just because "erectopus" sounds funny.

    @Barbarossa69 Compsagnathus was the chicken/small dog one, though yeah, velociraptors were nowhere near the size of the Jurassic Park ones. They were more like a german shepherd or some other big dog, around 2.5 - 3 feet high.

    Unfortunately, do to physiological differences, it is impossible to have people in the costumes without showing the legs. The dinosaur`s so-called `knees` are actually its ankles. You can see the same skeletal structure in dogs and horses.

    Awesome display, in any event.

    In a darkened arena, where they put on these shows (from what I understand), they wear black tights and are barely visible.

    No, I`m sorry but the puppeters skill is to animate the character they are playing, these guys did that brilliantly. Yes you can see legs, but we all had a bit of wonder and amazement before we did. Before the sad, bitter, cynical conditioning kicked in. Just now`n`again it`s nice to drop that and enjoy theater for what it is like we used to when we were kids, or are you all to old for that?! Does no-one remember The Muppets? Anyone who says this isn`t awesome is dead inside.

    A-mazing. Forget the fact I can see the leg, that`s pretty damn cool and it looks pretty difficult to be able to control those things. Those actors can`t really see what their dino looks like on the outside and yet they do a very good job on moving the dinos in a way we would find realistic, despite no one ever seeing a dinosaur before.
    Coooool.

    My friends and I encountered that dinosaur on New Years Day.

    Most of us were tripping at the time, and it scared the hell out of us.
