They're big. They're bad. They're HERE. Picture a place where the dinosaurs stand taller than you ever expected and their voices thunder through your bones. Look up—way up!—Dinosaurs Unearthed features life-size, life-like animatronic dinosaurs, full-scale skeletons and fossils from around the world.

  • Experience two stirring tales of large-scale excavation sites on opposite sides of the globe—from the deserts of Mongolia to a quarry in Utah—and uncover secrets about life on Earth, millions of years ago.
  • Activate animatronic dinosaurs like Triceratops and Stegosaurus and see them come alive at the Make Me Move stations.
  • Play like a paleontologist for the day: Unearth and identify fossil replicas at the Dig Table.
  • Hear what scientists believe was the voice of a Parasaurolophus.
  • Check out nearly two dozen fossils from the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods, including an Oviraptor egg and coprolite—a.k.a. dinosaur dung!
  • See the Omeisaurus skeleton. Oh me, oh my! It's 68 feet long!

PLUS—get up close and VERY personal with velociraptors, T-rexes and more at Jurassic World: Blue, the virtual reality experience, running weekends only concurrently with Dinosaurs Unearthed. In this 6-minute adventure, you'll track alongside Blue—the intelligent, loyal velociraptor from the megamovie series—as she battles the jungle's most threatening predators—while a volcano erupts in the background! The VR experience is recommended for ages 13 and up, and is included with paid Springs Preserve general admission or membership.

Jurassic World: Blue is a production by Felix & Paul Studios, Oculus Studios and Universal Pictures.
