Beginning next spring, guests will now have an opportunity to step back in time with the addition of Dinosaurs Alive, the largest animatronic dinosaur park in the Southeast! This multi-sensory and interactive dinosaur park that will allow guests to experience the sights and sounds of 32 roaring life-sized animated dinosaurs along a trail stretching across 5 wooded acres . Each dinosaur is made to replicate nearly every feature of the mammoth creatures that once roamed the Earth 120-million years ago. Some dinosaurs will move and roar on command, and kids will be able to explore their own dinosaur dig site giving visitors a prehistoric experience like none other!
Representation from 25 diverse species originally unearthed in 5 different continents.
Entertaining and educational, several dinosaurs come with a console so kids can move them themselves and each dinosaur is paired with information sharing how it lived millions of years ago.
Thirteen scenes spread across 1000+ yards of trails including the ferocious and ever popular Tyrannosaurus Rex as he battles it out with Triceratops.
The largest dinosaur will reach 40 feet high and over 60 feet long, the Ruyangosaurus from the early Cretaceous period
Now my biggest decision is do I see it at Carowinds, Cedar Point or King's Island when I take my road trip in June....what a dilemma. Oh that and which park I should want to get stuck on Windseeker the most....lol
CURRENT COASTER CREDIT COUNT: 80 A little behind...planning to catch-up soon...
I really thought they'd do a kind of "traveling" version of DA, where they'd move it to a different park every couple of years or so. Guess they're making enough money that it makes more sense for them to put it into pretty much all of their properties.
Always trying to keep YOU entertained! Now with more Ice Bat!

Well, if they make enough money off of them to pay it off in the first year and then some, I'm sure the maintenance costs can't be terribly high. I wouldn't be surprised to see these stick around until they're falling apart.
Is it me or does anyone else think that DA will be included in the admission price for Carowinds? I don't see anywhere in the press releases that this will be an upcharge attraction. Carowinds is a strong season pass park and that would make sense. Thoughts?
^ I'd definitely put money on them charging the $5 fee like every other park. Being the only attraction Carowinds is getting in 2013, the GP would have exploded with complaints if they stated it was an up charge in the press release.
Great more mechanical lizards!!! I won't pay for something like this... I'm a shareholder in Cedar Fair, so I'm sure this is making money at their other parks. I should be happy since it's making me money.
