Discover the Dinosaurs

The spinosaurus is at your beck and call. It stands amid the exotic foliage of its era, its sharp-toothed jaws set in an almost docile expression—but at the press of a button, it might gnash those teeth, swish its tail, or give a mighty roar.

Up to 40 giant dinosaurs lurk throughout each Discover the Dinosaurs exhibit. 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. Those that don’t move are still plenty convincing, thanks to museum-quality construction and sets filled with roiling fog and dynamic light and sound effects.

Some of the dinos are even arranged to let visitors tempt fate by sticking a hand into their mouths or patting their mighty flanks. And kids can actually climb atop a couple of the beasts, with triceratops and T. rex rides among a midway’s worth of supporting attractions.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I took our grandchildren, who are 9 and 3. We all had a great time. The people who painted the faces were exceptionally talented. All of the staff were very nice and helpful. The dinosaurs were displayed beautifully-many great photo opportunities.

We really enjoyed the venue. The staff was nice. Everything was spread out and neat. We went when it first opened and the kids got to enjoy the rides, games and bounce houses and take pictures, and dig up the bones before the crowd got there. I give it two thumbs up. 👍🏾👍🏾
