Travel back 65 million years to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Visitors will be immersed in over a century’s worth of scientific research as they venture through recreations of Cretaceous habitats, witnessing the sights and sounds of this vital period in Earth’s history.
Battle of the Titans is an interactive encounter featuring authentic fossils, striking graphics, dramatic videos, living dioramas, remarkable displays, realistic background audio and stunning, life-size animatronic dinosaurs; all making you, the visitor, a part of the action.
Around every corner of the exhibit lurks a new discovery. Stumble upon a classic battle between two behemoths of that time period, the mighty T-Rex and the powerful Triceratops. See how they lived, how they died and how they shaped the earth as we now know it.
