Moving, Roaring Dinosaurs are Coming to El Paso: Here’s What We Know
Attention fellow dino nerds, a stampede of giant lizards is heading to El Paso. Lizards from the Jurassic era, that is. The national touring exhibition Jurassic Empire is scheduled to make a stop at the El Paso County Coliseum in March.
Dino-loving fans will be taken back to a time when giant reptiles roamed arenas, um, I mean, the earth.
The company describes the moving, roaring animatronic creatures heading our way as life-size and realistic-looking, and the indoor walk-through will feature a number of them.
T-Rex, velociraptors, triceratops, and long-necks are among the dinosaurs that will be represented.
Per the event website, the walk-through takes "anywhere from 20 minutes to more than 1 hour depending on how much time you spend next to each dinosaur."
Dinosaur-themed rides, Virtual Reality rides, a fossil dig area, and a bouncy castle are also part of the activities available, but are optional and cost extra.
