Walks with dinosaurs
@rich You are partially correct. There is a person driving them, but they don't control the movements, just the placement on stage. There are two other people (voodoo puppeteers) who perform each of the large dinos. One controls all of the large movements - head, neck, body, tail - and the other controls the smaller movements and sounds - eyes and mouth. A team of three altogether performing one dino. :)
There are smaller dinos in the show - raptors for example - that are performed by a person inside them. The suits weigh about 100 lbs. The performer also controls each of the sounds as well as the head, mouth and eye movements from inside the suit.
@Graham The dinos aren't programed. They're basically giant robotic puppets performed live. :)
