Animatronic Dinosaurs are Back!
Watch for triceratops grazing among the bushes, then look up to see fearsome T-Rex’s banana-sized teeth ready to tear into his next meal. Don’t run! You haven’t actually travelled back in time – it just feels like it.
This March, The Calgary Zoo is bringing back Dinosaurs Alive, the animatronic dinosaur exhibit previously seen in 2010. Following the refurbishment of the Prehistoric Park, the zoo will introduce 17 dinosaur models into the park to add to the current collection.
These realistic, fleshy models have special engineering to help them move in a true fashion. All of the creatures vocalize and some can even be controlled through the touch of a button by a curious visitor.
Come and see for yourself what Alberta might have looked like when dinosaurs reigned supreme.
Check out some of Calgary’s favourite family events including Easter Eggstravaganza (April), the brand new Chinese garden and lantern festival ILLUMINASIA (Sept-Oct), and ZOOLIGHTS (Nov-Jan)
