Following 2010’s critically-acclaimed Diamondback roller coaster, Cincinnati area theme park Kings Island recently announced their new Dinosaurs Alive! attraction. Touted as the “World’s largest animatronic dinosaur park”, it will feature 56 animatronic models in an outdoor setting.
While my forte is roller coasters and I wouldn’t consider myself a themed attractions expert, this is the first time in recent memory that I can remember seeing a regional park introduce an attraction like Dinosaurs Alive!. I’ve always been a big dinosaur fan and Dinosaurs Alive! looks pretty cool. Unfortunately, it will be a few years before I visit Kings Island and check it out as my young daughters would likely be terrified of these massive dinosaurs.
