Kings Island and Canada's Wonderland have both announced new additions to their Dinosaurs Alive! walkthrough attractions for the 2013 season.
Both Cedar Fair parks charge an additional $5 on top of the standard entry ticket price for access to Dinosaurs Alive!, and are keen to maintain the attractions' appeal. Kings Island first opened its version of the animatronic exhibit in May 2011, with the Canada's Wonderland version opening a year later.
Kings Island will expand its existing line-up of 50 animatronic dinosaurs with the addition of a life-sized Sauroposeidon, which will become the largest model at the park. Standing at six-stories tall, and extending for the length of three school buses, it will be joined by a new display showing a pack of Albertosaurus hunting for prey.
Canada's Wonderland, meanwhile, will add a Maiasaura nesting scene to its Dinosaurs Alive! trail, showing off a group of baby Hadrosaurs in the early stages of development.
