The Calgary Zoo is inviting people to come see a brand new dinosaur exhibit at the recently redesigned Prehistoric Park starting this weekend.

Based on the success of the past “Dinosaurs Alive” exhibit held at the zoo in 2010 and 2015, officials are introducing 26 new animatronic dinosaurs as part of an exhibit called “Dinosaurs: Awakened.”

“Visitors will marvel at the size of these magnificent life-like creatures that move, sound and exhibit behaviours of these giants of the past,” the zoo’s Alison Archambault said in a news release.

“This exhibit will inspire visitors to think and engage with dinosaurs in a new way, challenging old notions of what they may have looked like.”
