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.


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. 


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. Those interested in booking school groups or corporate events can contact for more details.
