Dinosaurs Alive!

Dinosaurs Alive!

Program Information

Students can step back in time to the beginning of the "Age of the Dinosaurs" and encounter the beasts that dominated the planet for over 180 million years in the world's largest animatronic dinosaur park!

Art and technology, two disparate disciplines, are explored in order for students to hear the sounds, see the movements and observe the beauty of more than 65 full-sized animatronic creations that replicate nearly every feature of the dinosaurs in a spectacular 12.5-acre Jurassic forest outdoor setting.

Our free Educator Guide to Dinosaurs Alive! was created to help teachers and students make the most of their field trip. The guide begins with an onsite field trip activity as well as a number of classroom lesson plans designed to correlate closely with national curriculum standards.
