Countdown to Opening Day for the 2021 Season: May 15th 11:00 AM!

Kings Island is now open for 2021.

As for the gift shop, what if they are trying to stay with a theme? Think about it this way: An actual building would not give the illusion of trying to track down dinosaurs, but a tent gives the illusion of a "base camp" of sorts: One that can pack up and be transported to the next spot as the animals naturally migrate.

Nah, temp attraction with a rental tent....

For more realistic it would be camoflauge and such.

How do you know? I must assume you are on the DA! team.

This whole DA thing is starting to remind of Jurassic Park at IOA ...on very smaller scale..It's gonna be pretty cool. I doubt I will do it..because it seems like everything is a ''pay-as-you-play attraction'' in KI anymore. I go for the coasters and sometimes I stay with kids and let them have their fun. Still good coverage here on KIC. :)

Not since the summer of 1996, when "Jurassic Park: The Ride" opened at Universal Studios, have amusement park fans looked forward to such an awe inspiring dinosaur themed attraction.\

Respectfully I disagree. Dinosaur (originally Countdown to Extinction) at Disney's Animal Kingdom has maintained a popularity much higher than that of the Jurassic Park River Adventure since it's opening in 1998.

Great pictures, guys! I gotta admit that, even though animatronic dinos really aren't my thing, this looks really well done. If only the trees around Diamondback could have been as sparingly removed!

Now, for the million dollar Haunt question: does the DA path intersect the ToT path at any point?

And Jurrasic Park The RIde didn`t open until Islands of Adventure opened, which occurred in 1999! So we are only talking a variance of a few years...

Here are some preliminary Dinosaurs Alive pictures from today: http://www.KICentral...s.php?album=339

He's referring to the one at Universal Studios Hollywood:

The IOA attraction (and the ones that followed) is merely a clone of the original.

A slightly more low-budget sibling, I'd say.. I wish it was a clone! I suppose Orlando more than made up for its shortcomings with their version of The Revenge of the Mummy...

This may seem like a stupid question but if Dinosaurs Alive is in fact here for more than this season does anyone want to venture a guess whether or not these things are winter safe? will they be removed or covered somehow? Or are they made to withstand the elements of an Ohio winter?

I kind of would like to see the Ruyang Yellow River dinosaur, that be neat to me :P sucks what happened though.

According to this article, http://www.journal-news.com/news/hamilton-news/fans-of-dinosaurs-enjoy-new-kings-island-attraction-1170172.html?cxtype=ynews_rss

It was infact the Ruyang Yellow River Dinosaur that caught on fire, and was destroyed :(

Here is the one that was displayed at Brookfield Zoo when they had Dinosaurs Alive there
