Dinosaurs to Touch, Ride on Display at Cashman Center

 

Kids will get a chance to get close up to some of the fierce creatures that once roamed the earth.

The Discover the Dinosaurs exhibit opens its doors this weekend at Cashman Center. The exhibit features 60 animatronic and museum-quality dinosaur replicas.

"It is a concept of an attraction plus a museum. We are priding ourselves on being educational and informative plus also having activities for kids to do," show manager Steven Rosholt said.

The display is not just to look at, kids will also get a chance to get up close and actually touch some of the replicas. Kids will even get a chance to ride the biggest, fiercest dinosaur in the Jurassic Period, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.  

"It is a lot of work that we have to put in to move them around, but once the show comes and you see the kids faces light up. It just makes all the work worth it," Rosholt said.

There is also a dino dig, dino den, dino coloring area and scavenger hunt, which are all part of the ticket price. With an exhibit plus admission ticket, kids can also play on inflatable dinosaurs, use the mini golf course and mine for gems and fossils.
