Ultimate Dinosaurs

Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar—dinosaurs unfamiliar to popular imagination. Cutting-edge technology puts a new twist on bringing these prehistoric creatures to life in the 21st century! From the tiny Eoraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex's bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you have not met before.

This is not your ordinary dinosaurs exhibition. Feel the exciting and intimidating presence of these exotic creatures as you wander amongst the 15 life–size casts and a dozen prehistoric specimens. Use the augmented reality interactives to experience these dinosaurs in the flesh—animated and rendered according to the most recent scientific findings.
