VAL the velociraptor at AK

Has anyone seen this test run at AK, of Professor Woodson and her "pet" velociraptor Val? It is testing through May 3. DH and I will be at AK 4/26, so we may get to see "Val" in person.
I have to say that seeing almost the entire body of the man inside of the velociraptor bothers me. Seeing everything but his head is a little weird, especially since they are walking around doing a skit, but that's just my opinion. I'm sure small children won't mind, in fact, Val might actually scare some of them.
I am all about Disney magic but I love that the actors inside the Mickey, Minnie, Donald, etc... costumes are completely covered. It helps me believe the magic a little more.

Here is the link, but I am not good at doing most things on the computer, so I can't guarantee it will work.

I think the look is really cool, though I agree it might be frightening for some kids.
