SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Following highly successful runs of Van Gogh and Claude Monet immersive experiences at Schenectady’s Armory Studios NY, Exhibition Hub in partnership with Fever, today announced that Dinos Alive: An Immersive Experience will be coming to downtown Schenectady in March. Following its success in major cities throughout the world including Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington DC, Seoul, Melbourne, and Brussels, this global phenomenon will now bring all the excitement of the Mesozoic Era to the Capital Region.
Dinos Alive: An Immersive Experience uses more than 80 highly accurate animatronic dinosaur models, immersive projection technology, virtual reality, theatrical lighting, elaborate scenery, and hands-on activities to create an unforgettable journey back to the days of the dinosaurs that will thrill all ages.
“Get ready to embark on a prehistoric adventure as Dinos Alive roars into Schenectady next month, offering an immersive experience that brings dinosaurs to life like never before,” said Cathy Gatta, Schenectady County Legislator and President of the Discover Schenectady Board of Directors. “This captivating exhibit is just one example of how Schenectady County remains a dynamic hub for arts and entertainment, continually attracting national exhibits and solidifying its status as a must-visit destination in the Capital Region and beyond.”
Tickets to Dinos Alive are available for advance purchase at this link. Dinos Alive is scheduled to open on Thursday, March 7, 2024.
“Armory Studios NY is very excited to host the many thousands of visitors that will attend Dinos Alive and to welcome them to sip, savor and snack with friends and family at our Armory Lounge NY, just steps from the Expo entrance,” said Ray Legere, Co-Owner of Armory Studios NY. “What better place to host this massive undertaking of a show, featuring many of the largest animals ever to walk the earth, than our equally massive Studio A, fresh from the very successful runs of the Van Gogh and Monet immersive experiences.”
Highly educational, immersive, and interactive, Dinos Alive showcases some of the largest dinosaurs to ever walk the planet, including the iconic Tyrannosaurus rex, Apatosaurus, and the fierce Spinosaurus. These are only a few of the scores of dinosaurs that visitors will see in this unparalleled dinosaur experience, which was named a CNN Must See Attraction. Visitors can mix it up with the dinosaurs as well, coloring them every shade of the rainbow, racing a Velociraptor to see who’s fastest, engaging in multiple selfie opportunities, and even riding a dinosaur.
“Everyone loves dinosaurs,” said John Zaller, Executive Producer for Exhibition Hub. “This is a great show for kids that includes significant educational and hands-on activities along with sensational face to face dino encounters. Dinos Alive is also great for families, a fun gathering place for friends, and it makes for a unique date night.”
Along with its vast installation of animatronic dinosaurs that chronicle all three periods in the Mesozoic era, Dinos Alive also boasts a 2,500-square-foot virtual aquarium where guests can dive into the deep sea and interact with Jurassic sea giants in their natural habitat. The 60-75-minute experience also offers educators an opportunity to enrich their classes through K-12 educational materials aligned to state standards.
Dinos Alive is designed to cater to visitors of all ages. Children can enjoy an interactive space where they play the role of a paleontologist and engage with iconic dinosaurs. Group discounts make it an ideal family activity, providing an immersive and educational experience for everyone.
