Discover the Dinosaurs

Dozens of prehistoric lizards lurk throughout each Discover the Dinosaurs exhibit. Some eye you docilely—but others might gnash their teeth, swish their tails, or surprise you with a roar. Many of them have an animatronic skeleton and warm mechanical heart beneath their piercing talons, striped plates, and crepe-like swaths of realistically painted skin. Some of the dinos even let visitors tempt fate by sticking a hand into their mouths or patting their mighty flanks.

Along with access to the exhibit, admission includes access to a midway’s worth of family-friendly attractions:

  • Ride a Triceratops or T. Rex: these animatronic animals won’t bite, and you’re allowed unlimited rides
  • Play Inside a Dinosaur: jump, slide, and bounce your way through a herd of dino-themed inflatables [Socks required]
  • Dig for Dino Bones: practice your paleontology skills by brushing away sand until you uncover the skeleton of dinosaur
  • Pan for Gems and Fossils: for an additional fee, visitors can purchase a bag of mining rough and sluice it in running water to reveal the gems and fossils hidden within. They can also strap on a headlamp and hardhat and explore a mineshaft for even more treasures.
  • Other Attractions: Mini golf | face painting | scavenger hunt | coloring station | movie theater
