Immersive dinosaur experience entertains and transports families back to prehistoric ages Announcing Extended Summer Hours Starting May 29

 Dino Safari: A Walk-Thru Adventure has delighted families in the Metro Atlanta area since 2021 and is the perfect experiential family walk-through attraction for an engaging and educational escape. The exhibit is welcoming even more family fun, with extended hours for the summertime, starting May 29 and continuing through Sept. 4.

Imagine Exhibitions launched this dinosaur-filled indoor experience for local families and visitors to get up-close-and-personal with larger-than-life animatronic dinosaurs and the most fascinating, fan-favorite prehistoric inhabitants! Dino Safari: A Walk-Thru Adventure is open at North Point Mall in Alpharetta and tickets are on sale now at DinoSafari.com

“If you have a dinosaur fan at home this is a must see for locals and tourists,” said Tom Zaller, CEO of Imagine Exhibitions. “See enormous animatronic dinosaurs, real fossils, interactive games, virtual reality, and incredible science, all in one place! Dino Safari is the perfect activity for dinosaur fans of all ages to become immersed in an entertaining and educational globetrotting dinosaur adventure.” 

In this walk-through adventure, visitors meet and interact with more than 30 dinosaurs including the T. rex of North America and the Spinosaurus from Africa. Built with fun in mind but backed by world class paleontologists, this exhibition has it all. With real science, incredible installations, and realistic moving animatronics, Dino Safari will transport visitors back millions of years to meet these prehistoric creatures in replicas of their natural habitats.

Located in North Point Mall on the upper level, the experience showcases how dinosaurs evolved over time and offers hands-on challenges for visitors to solve, along with depictions of natural elements that often occurred during this time, such as earthquakes. The thrilling adventure features captivating virtual reality technology, spectacular installations, and interactive activities for children. 

The exhibition was created by Atlanta-based Imagine Exhibitions in collaboration with world-renowned Ph.D. Dinosaur Paleontologist Gregory M. Erickson, who is one of only 150 full-time professional dinosaur paleontologists in the world. It’s currently exciting audiences in Boston, San Antonio and Las Vegas as well as Atlanta.
