“Jurassic World: The Exhibition” is your chance to see life-size animatronic dinos from way back in the day—the same ones that have thrilled and chilled us in the Jurassic Park movie series. That’s right. They don’t just stand there. They move. And they’re really upset.
Experiencing the exhibit is like traveling to Isla Nublar as a VIP guest and exploring Jurassic World. According to the Franklin Institute website, you’ll have the chance to a massive Brachiosaurus, a Velociraptor and the dreaded T-rex. Paleontologist Jack Horner helped to create the exhibit, and it includes several interactive educational elements.
Philadelphia tickets are on sale now. The exhibit debuted earlier at the Melbourne Museum and runs down under until Oct. 2. Here’s a sneak peek from the Australian exhibit:
How do raptors travel from place to place? Any way they want to.
P.S. “Jurassic World 2” starts filming in Hawaii and London in February of 2017, and will be released June 22, 2018. POTENTIAL SPOILER.
P.P.S. I have a bit of experience with these guys. You just can’t take any lip from ’em. That’s me back at a “Lost World: Jurassic Park” promotion in Cincinnati, May 1997.
