CapeCodOnline.com – Trenton Forth peers intently from the walkway at the greenish brown dinosaur pawing its limbs in the air.
The Ornithomimus — which looks like a mega-ostrich from ancient times — arches its neck as mist clings to the wooded terrain behind it.
“That’s a cool dinosaur,” Trenton, 3, tells his dad, Wayde, a few times as the Brockton pair look on.
Throughout the 20-acre Dinoland exhibit at the Carver family attraction, Edaville USA, the public can now harken back to prehistoric days and walk among the dinosaurs.
The permanent exhibit, which opened in late June, features 24 dinosaurs, some towering about 60 feet high. There is the famed Tyrannosaurus, a female and male Triceratops, a baby Deinonychus and a multitude of others.
The dinosaurs have a steel frame. and electro-hydraulics inside that help move the creatures when approached by visitors. A series of motors and hydraulic pulleys inside the dinosaurs move the limbs, neck, eyes, head, tails and jaws.
Yeah, yeah, I know this isn’t on Cape Cod but I don’t care. When someone builds 24 electro-hydraulic dinosaurs, some 60 feet tall, on 20 acres, within 20 miles of this peninsula, you can bet your ass I’m talking about it. I don’t care who you are, if you don’t get excited by being able to visit the Land of the Lost or Jurassic Park then you need to check your pulse.
My only problem is that I don’t have kids. How long do you think a full grown man can walk around by himself at Dino Land before people start getting freaked out nowadays? It’s not easy being an adult with the psyche of an 11 year old in this day and age, stupid priests ruined it for everyone.The Real Cape
