During this exhibit, you can travel back in time 65 million years. This groundbreaking exhibit combines video game technology and traditional components for an oversized adventure. Visitors take control of their own dinosaur and explore a fully interactive reconstruction of the most complex ancient ecosystem ever created. The exhibit also features full-size dinosaur bones and a paleontology field station. The simulation at the core of this exhibit is, the most complex simulation of dinosaurs and their world ever created. For the first time, artificially intelligent dinosaurs roam across realistic terrain. The dinosaurs have simulated muscle and digestive systems. Virtual winds circulate digital odors, and plants grow and have accurate nutritional values. In order to prepare for a trip into this exciting virtual world, visitors will need to “dig” through other exhibit components to unlock the secrets of how dinosaurs survived and thrived.
