Dinosaur walking forth from trees

Step back in time 66 million years and watch dinosaurs come to life.... all around you!

Walk with Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Troodon of the Late Cretaceous, through the use of augmented reality and motion tracking. Visitors see themselves on a large LED video wall allowing them to interact with a variety of dinosaurs including a Triceratops and T-rex. Since its opening weekend, over visitors have participated in the experience.

These dinosaurs were among the last dinosaurs that lived in North America just before the mass extinction 66 million years ago. But not all dinosaurs went extinct: birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs and are related to Tyrannosaurus.
