Last Days Of The Dinosaurs

(8.13) Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and then the asteroid (moving van) brings the Dinosaurs Among Us exhibit to an end. Travel back in time in this immersive, walk-through experience featuring nearly 60 life-size animatronic dinosaurs including the 18-foot-long Dreadnoughtus, an 8-foot tall Brachiosaurus, Triceratops (and baby), Stegasaurus, and of course, T. Rex. I checked it out in June and there were no bored children that I could see.

T. Rex always gets a lot of love, but don’t miss the off-in-the-distance tableaux like these carnivorous Dimetrodons circling the swamp. And these are not even dinosaurs. The sign informs visitors that they are “more of a mammal than bird or reptile.” In fact, they went extinct 60 million years before dinosaurs even evolved. To learn more: I strongly recommend “Prehistoric Planet” with David Attenborough.

A separate ticket is required for entry into this exhibit. To ensure a specific time slot, tickets should be ordered online. Tickets can be purchased at the gate, but they may be sold out.

Last entry into the dinosaur trail is 3pm.

Dinosaurs Among Us, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, August 11, 12, 13, RWP Zoo, 1000 Elmwood Avenue, (directions)
