Can you imagine the Huntsville Botanical Garden teeming with giant reptiles? A Stegosaurus in the Fern Glade, a Tyrannosaurus by the train, or a Triceratops stomping through the Children’s Garden? Your imagination will turn into reality when the latest outdoor exhibit, Dinosaurs UpROAR Alive begins on May 13th!
If you have a little dinosaur lover at your house, NOW is the time to go ahead and get that family membership to HBG and put it to good use this summer.
The Dinos Move!
The Garden is excited to exhibit museum-quality animatronic dinosaurs throughout the grounds. Long considered the most natural looking and life-like dinosaurs available, every detail was designed in collaboration with some of the nation’s most prominent paleontologists. And the engineering of the animatronics is unparalleled.
You’ll come face-to-face with animatronic dinosaurs on an adventure that also includes a fossil dig! You’ll experience what it’s like to discover clues about these long-gone giants, and even learn a thing or two along the way!
What Dinosaurs Will You See?
Hear the infamous roar of the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, and the deep vocal calls of a hollow-crested, duck-billed Parasaurolophus. Search for vegetation with the leisurely Stegosaurus, then walk with an Ankylosaurus family as they munch on plants close to the ground. Forage in the forests of North America with a Triceratops and two of its young. Stand beneath a coastal Pteranodon as it glides overhead.
