Dinosaur Explore Coming To Stone Mountain Park – Spring 2017

Extinct from Earth for millions of years, 15 species of prehistoric dinosaurs are making their way to Stone Mountain Park. “Dinosaur Explore” will open March 30 and run throughout the 2017 season. The prehistoric creature collection features more than 20 life-size dinosaurs with special effects allowing them to move and roar just like their ancient ancestors. Families will find their favorites among them including the giant Tyrannosaurus Rex, often referred to as the king of the dinosaurs. Two gentle, plant-eating brachiosaurus will tower above guests over 20 feet tall and 33 feet long. The collection also includes the three-horned triceratops, a ferocious allosaurus, a winged pteranodon and many more scientifically accurate species.
