Well that’s something you don’t see every day.
From May 7 through May23rd, an unusual sight will be seen in the Fox Valley. Hint: they are very large, very fierce, and haven’t been seen in a while.
Nope, it’s not the ’85 Bears (but good guess).
Dino Safari, a unique travelling exhibit created by Atlanta-based Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., will come storming into the Fox Valley from May 7 through May 23rd, taking up residence at the Fox Valley Mall in Aurora.
During the exciting drive-through exhibit, families will join 35 full-scale, moving, scientifically accurate dinosaurs on a prehistoric globetrotting expedition. Throughout the journey, which features an easy-access in-car audio guide, guests will experience simulated earthquakes, be eye-witnesses to fierce dinosaur battles, and they may even need to save a baby dinosaur’s life.
Visitors will learn how dinosaurs evolved over time, where they lived on Earth, and what paleontologists have discovered about how they ate, moved and behaved.
Each car will receive one “Survival Pack” that includes take-home activities related to the experience.
Tickets are sold on a per-vehicle basis and prices start at $49.95 (for a seven-passenger vehicle). Sellouts are expected and advance ticket purchases are highly recommended; tickets can be purchased at https://dinosafari.com/.
Here’s a brief pre-exhibit introduction.
