Dozens of animatronic dinosaurs will be on display at Hurricane Harbor in Arlington.
Arlington residents can take a prehistoric trip back to the age of dinosaurs at a new drive-through exhibit roaring its way into the city this month.
Dinosaur Drive-Thru is an exhibit where families can see more than 60 animatronic dinosaurs moving about. An audio tour will share facts about every dinosaur that visitors pass by.
The exhibit is full of educational opportunities — but is equally entertaining, said its marketing director, Jim Wojdyla. He said the exhibit is a great way for families to safely get out of the house and learn all kinds of dinosaur information.
Originally created for museums, the detailed dinosaurs have been fully adapted to withstand the weather, Wojdyla said. All the dinosaurs are fully animatronic, meaning they blink, breathe and move their extremities.
This will be the exhibit’s first showing in Texas. It debuted in Phoenix, and Arlington was chosen next to take advantage of the warmer temperatures before it heads north, Wojdyla said.
The exhibit is at Hurricane Harbor in Arlington, 1800 E. Lamar Blvd., through Jan. 10. Tickets start at $55 for a vehicle holding eight passengers or $85 for a vehicle holding up to 15 passengers.
