Are you looking for a fun adventure to take your kids too? Visit, “Discover the Dinosaurs Unleashed” for a fun family-friendly activity. My kids saw the event on a television commercial and expressed their desire to see it in person. Once we arrived I was pleasantly surprised that there were more activities there than I realized.
At the DC Amory where we went, the Discover the Dinosaurs Unleashed experience was separated. The first room was a blast back into time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The creators set up animatronic dinosaurs for our viewing pleasure. The room was dark and eerie at first, but it brightened up as you entered the activity portion.
FYI – “Animatronics refers to the use of robotic devices to emulate a human or an animal, or bring lifelike characteristics to an otherwise inanimate object” (Animatronics).
In my opinion, this event is best suited for children ages 2-8 years old, even though official ages are from 3-12. For instance, my daughters are 8 and average height, but they were almost too big for the Raceway cars and other attractions. Their knees hung over the top of the Jeep and the golf court was very miniature. Nonetheless they still enjoyed it.
After speaking to a few parents, some of their little ones were nervous about seeing the animatronic dinosaurs. It was a little scary for some kid, but organizers separated that section from the attractions. Thus, if you have younger children please take advantage and enjoy each attraction. They even had a play area for kids 3 and under.
