Georgia’s Stone Mountain Welcoming Dinosaurs

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Stone Mountain Park, just outside of Atlanta, will be adding a new attraction this March. Dinosaur Explore will open March 30, running throughout the 2017 season.

Dinosaur Explore will feature 20 dinosaurs representing 14 species, Tyrannosaurus rex meet and greets, baby dinosaur interactions and a dino dig play area. In addition, there will be an all-new indoor experience: Dinotorium, where guests can learn about dinosaur habitats, visit a Dino Nursery, feed baby dinosaurs and play games. The prehistoric creature collection will be located behind the Dinotorium on wooded trails where families will discover giant dinosaurs that move and roar just like their ancient ancestors, including a Brachiosaurus that towers overhead nearly two stories tall.

Also making its debut at the park March 30 is the loveable herd from Ice Age in the new “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs(TM) 4D Experience.” Sid, Manny, Diego and the rest of the crew embark on an action-packed adventure when they discover a lost world of dinosaurs.

Dinosaur Explore is free with any paid daily Adventure Pass or Mountain Membership.
