Dinosaurs! will be located in the Butterfly Exhibit and the field adjacent.
Animatronic Dinosaurs—The exhibit features 17 lifelike dinosaur animatronics along an outdoor landscaped pathway. As guests pass by each animatronic, a sensor signals various parts—eyes, head, arms, tail—to move.
Paleontologist Excavation Site—Along the trail, there will be a replica of a paleontologist campsite site that showcases how paleontologists uncover dinosaur specimens, and gives children the chance to uncover “fossils” on their own.
Colorful Graphics—Signage introduces guests to each of the animatronics that represent the inhabitants from a time gone by, from the Late Jurassic Period when the Stegosaurus roamed North America 150 million years ago to the Late Cretaceous Period of 85-75 million years ago when the Pteranodon wandered the earth.
