DINOSAURS will come to life at Chester Zoo this summer in what promises to be one of the most exciting and groundbreaking exhibits ever seen in a UK zoo.
The new exhibition, featuring 13 life-sized mechanical replicas of the creatures that roamed the earth 200 million years ago, will open in July.
Featuring realistic movements and sounds, the dinosaurs will include the giant apatosaurus, with its distinctive long neck and whip-like tail, the evil-looking dilophosaurus, with its long, sharp claws and the infamous tyrannosaurus rex, the most feared land predator of all time.
The animated robots will be part of an outdoor trail called Dinosaurs at Large! and will show visitors exactly what it would have been like to get close to such huge beasts.
The event, which also aims to spread the message that once a creature is gone, it is gone forever, will run from 1st July 1-October 8 and will be open every day from 10am-6pm.
Dinosaurs at Large! is open to all visitors to Chester Zoo, free of charge.
