Visitors can travel back in time along a half-mile nature trail with ten life-size animatronic dinosaurs at the 15th Annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit. The exhibit features the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, a spitting Dilophosaurus, an Acrocanthosaurus, an Allosaurus, a Brachiosaurus, a Diabloceratops, a Megalosaurus, two Stegocerases, a Therizinosaurus, and a Utahraptor. Guests can also learn interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs.

Children and the young at heart will also have the opportunity to play on stationary baby dinosaurs, a photo-op Tyrannosaurus rex, and a photo op Pachyrhinosaurus. This year’s exhibit will also include an outdoor Hadrosaur fossil dig to inspire future paleontologists. The Dinosaurs Live! exhibit trail is jogging-stroller friendly (umbrella strollers are not recommended), giving families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together.

The exhibit will remain on display through February 25.
