A life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex, a kids paleontological dig site and at least two remote control dinosaurs are just a few highlights of Dinosaurs Alive! , a walk-through prehistoric-themed attraction debuting this summer, said Charles Hutchison, the park's spokesman.

If nothing else, Cedar Fair is committed to the idea.

When I saw the headline I started to think, "Where are they going to put this?". I mean, I can't think of an area at the park that has a large space with a lot of trees. I read the article - "thematic exhibits spread across four acres beside Steel Force". So now my questions is... Isn't that area just a large parking lot?

I think this is the area it'll go into.

Dinosaurs Alive! seems to have given Cedar Fair a new-found appreciation for trees. Wooded areas can now be seen as potential revenue-generating dinosaur park locations.

Ok, somebody do some research and tell me if there is a Kinzel on the payroll at this Dinosaur company.

What's next? Cabbage Patch lands? I mean...THAT is only about a 30 year old fad.

Well he's correct, the trees could indeed be used to dam it. You just need some beavers.

Cedar Fair must have gotten a volume discount.

Which reminds me: Carowinds just bought an extra plot of land to. Are they up next?

KI didn't announce their DA until just before the start of the season. So it is possible that Carowinds could still be getting DA for 2012.

How long will it be until someone complains that MI Adv. isn't getting dinosaurs?

These satellite parks are where they breed the dinosaurs before shipping them to the main park at Cedar Point. It's a safety precaution.

Does this have something to do with the passy lifestyle?
