About the Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs Alive features over 40 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, which are scientifically accurate based on the latest paleontological knowledge. These fascinating specimens were created by the Canadian-based company, Dinosaurs Unearthed. Launched, in 2005, Dinosaurs Unearthed is an innovative traveling exhibition company that creates dynamic, multi-sensory experiences about the fascinating world of dinosaur discovery.

Combining finely detailed hand-crafted animatronics, interactive consoles, a lush setting and educational content that reflect the latest scientific theories, Dinosaurs Alive! offers not only the excitement of a tail thrashing, clawing and roaring exhibition, but the opportunity for guests of all ages to actively engage in a unique learning experience.
Scenes Based on Real Fossil Evidence
This dinosaur exhibit presents scenes and stories based on real fossil evidence, such as the predator trap at Cleveland-Lloyd in Utah and the Pachyrhinosaurus flash flood episode from Pipestone Creek in Alberta, Canada.
Appeals to Guests of All Ages
The opportunity to observe the size of these massive hadrosaurs and learn that they lived in herds numbering in the hundreds and thousands while sharing their ecological environment with even larger predators, becomes a moment of awe and understanding for guests of all ages of a world long since extinct.
