A different kind of animal has arrived at the Garden: dinosaurs. For a limited time, ferocious, magnificent creatures of the mighty Mesozoic era will be “unextinct”—brought “back to life” throughout the Garden.
Ever since the first dinosaur was discovered, these magnificent and mysterious creatures have captured our imagination! For generations we have marveled at skeletons and illustrations, only able to imagine how they might have moved, until they were brought to life through technology. The Garden is excited to exhibit museum-quality animatronic dinosaurs. Long considered the most natural looking and life-like dinosaurs available, every detail was designed in collaboration with some of the nation’s most prominent paleontologists. And the engineering of the animatronics is unparalleled.
Hear the infamous roar of the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, and the deep vocal calls of a hollow-crested, duck-billed Parasaurolophus. Search for vegetation with the leisurely Stegosaurus, then walk with an Ankylosaurus family as the low-browsers munch on plants close to the ground. Forage in the forests of North America with a Triceratops and two of its young. Stand beneath a coastal Pteranodon as it glides overhead.
Come face-to-face with animatronic dinosaurs on an adventure that also includes a fossil dig, where you’ll experience what it’s like to discover and interpret clues about these long-gone giants, and an educational and thrilling family experience.
