Discover the Dinosaurs   Feb. 1-3, 2013   York, York County


 

This looks AWESOME. The goal of Discover the Dinosaurs is to create a fun environment of learning and activity that explores the wonderment and mystery of our pre-historic past. Once you enter through the stone arch, the adventure begins that is full of smiles, amazement and fun. Hearing a 5 year old describe features of a Pachycephalosaurus will bring a smile to any adult's face!


The exhibit consists of 8-10 scenes. Each scene represents dinosaurs from a period of time that best reflects when the dinosaurs lived. The scenes engage you with sight, sound, and motion by using special lighting, sound effects, animatronics, and fog. The backdrops, rocks, flooring, and plant materials are designed to bring you back in time to a landscape where dinosaurs may have lived. Many of our non-moving  Dinosaurs are positioned safely throughout the exhibit, so you can touch and feel them. This is encouraged and a cornerstone of the Discover the Dinosaurs experience. Be sure to pickup a map/scavenger hunt sheet at the entrance to the exhibit. The map will guide you through the exhibit and the scavenger hunt will ask you to answer questions about each scene. Kids, once you complete the scavenger hunt, spin the wheel. You have earned a prize!
