Dinosaurs Unearthed

Valleyfair has confirmed that it will become the latest Cedar Fair theme park to open a Dinosaurs Alive! attraction, with the the new addition set to open in summer 2013. Like other versions of the attraction, it is expected to carry an extra charge on top of the standard price of admission to the park.

Dinosaurs Alive! will be very similar to the version at Kings Island, which Theme Park Tourist reviewed last year. However, it will be on a smaller scale, spanning 5 acres and featuring over 30 life-size animatronic dinosaurs produced by Canadian firm Dinosaurs Unearthed.

Several of the models will be controllable by guests via interactive consoles, which will show how scientists believe they moved their arms, tail, mouth and eyes. The largest model on show will be the Ruyangosaurus, which will reach a height of almost 40 feet and a length of 72 feet.

Each of the dinosaurs in the exhibit will be covered in skin-like materials and will feature realistic movements. They will be split across 7 themed areas, each depicting a specific scene.
