Dinosaurs Alive! will have more than 30 life-sized animated dinosaurs inhabiting seven scenes along a 2, 837-foot long path over nearly five wooded acres. 

Highlights of Valleyfair’s prehistoric attraction will be a Ruyanogosaurus (39-feet tall, 72-feet long and 11.5-feet wide) as well as a Tyrannosaurs Rex, a Triceratops and a Stegosaurus.

Interactivity has been planned for the attraction with some dinosaurs having consoles which will allow guests to guide the movements of the animatronic beasts.  There will also be a dig site where budding palaeontologists can discover prehistoric fossils.  There will also be a dinosaur-themed gift shop.

Valleyfair Vice President and General Manager, Dave Frazier, said, “Dinosaurs Alive! Is a perfect addition to Valleyfair’s extensive list of rides and attractions that are suitable for all ages.  These life-like dinosaurs will bring science and technology together to not only entertain but educate our Guests.”
