Dinosaurs Are Coming To Stone Mountain Park
Georgia’s Most Visited Attraction Adds Dinosaur Explore Experience for 2017

Stone Mountain, Ga. – After a 65 to 230 million year hiatus, Stone Mountain Park, Georgia’s most visited attraction, today announced plans to debut its latest addition, Dinosaur Explore, set to open March 30 and run throughout the 2017 season.

“Most of our guests are probably too young to remember the last time dinosaurs inhabited Stone Mountain Park,” said Michael Dombrowski, general manager of Stone Mountain Park. “Our newest attraction brings the wonder and excitement of these prehistoric animals back to the park in a way that offers families a fun new way to explore and learn.”

Dinosaur Explore will feature 20 dinosaurs representing 14 species, T. rex meet and greets, baby dinosaur interactions and a dino dig play area. In addition, there will be an all-new indoor experience: Dinotorium.

Inside the Dinotorium, guests can interact with dino rangers, learn about different dinosaur habitats, visit the Dino Nursery, feed baby dinosaurs and play games. Kids are invited to join in the learning fun by becoming junior dino rangers.

The prehistoric creature collection will be located behind the Dinotorium on wooded trails where families will discover giant dinosaurs that move and roar just like their ancient ancestors. The exhibition includes favorites like the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex and a gentle, plant-eating Brachiosaurus that towers overhead nearly two stories tall. The collection also includes a three-horned Triceratops, a ferocious Allosaurus, a winged Pteranodon and many more.

Dinosaur Explore opens March 30 for a limited time during 2017, and admission is FREE with any paid daily Adventure Pass or Mountain Membership.

Also making its debut at the park March 30 is the loveable herd from Ice Age in the new “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs™ 4D Experience.” Sid, Manny, Diego and the rest of the crew embark on an action-packed adventure when they discover a lost world of dinosaurs.

Paleolithic Stone Mountain Park

Stone Mountain was created by an upwelling of magma from the Earth’s crust roughly 300 to 250 million years ago. Dinosaurs arrived a little later, between 230 and 65 million years ago. While much of the surrounding region was water, Georgia is known to have been the home of several coastal species of dinosaurs.
