What is Dino Safari: A Walk-Thru Adventure?

This walk-through attraction was created by Atlanta-based Imagine Exhibitions (the same people who produced Harry Potter: The Exhibition) in collaboration with Ph.D. Dinosaur Paleontologist Gregory M. Erickson.

The exhibit features realistic animatronic dinosaurs, scientific exploration, and fun interactive elements to immerse you in the prehistoric world of the dinosaur.

My Dino Safari: A Walk-Thru Adventure Review

Dino Safari: A Walk-Thru Experience, Alpharetta, Atlanta, Georgia

The Dino Safari walk-thru experience begins with a passport to Pangea. We received this small passport booklet and a crayon. Inside the passport is a scavenger hunt of different dinosaurs, unique features, and plant life for us to find and check off as we walked through the exhibit.

You can also scan a QR code at the beginning of the experience to get access to an audio guide and music that will add to your safari experience. It’s not necessary to use the audio guide, but it’s great if you’ve got someone who wants to learn all the things about dinosaurs.

The journey through Pangea (the giant contiguous landmass that all the continents used to be a part of) is broken out into the continents we’re familiar with today. We learned about what each continent would have been like as part of Pangea and saw the dinosaurs that were native to that area.

We got to meet some of our favorite dinosaurs and even discovered a few we hadn’t even heard of.

And one of the best parts was that we got to take a picture with the T. Rex!

At the end of the experience was a “fun zone” where we got to do an interactive digital coloring game that brought our drawing to life, “feed” dinosaurs in a corn-hole-type game, play on an balancing course, race against a dinosaur, and put together a dinosaur puzzle.

The experience exits into the gift shop, naturally, where you can buy dinosaur toys, candy, clothes, and stuffed animals.

This is also where the Virtual Reality simulators were located, where you can go on additional adventures like flying through the mountains, a thrill ride in the city, and bungee jumping over a canyon. We did the bungee, roller coaster, and flying simulators, and they were okay. I’m not a huge fan of VR simulators because I get motion sick.

What Was Great About the Experience

The displays were great. I loved the animatronic dinosaurs and the traveling theme with the passport, vintage postcard displays, and grouping the dinosaurs by region.

The interactive elements were a nice touch. There was a dinosaur slide, a small tunnel to crawl through between two exhibits, a sandbox archaeological dig, and some small jungle balancing courses. Just a lot of little fun things for the kids.

The workers were all very nice and helped add to the safari experience. One even took a bunch of amazing pictures for us with the T. Rex!

What Was Not So Great

We were confused about the scale of the dinosaurs. I came into this thinking they were all mostly life-sized, then we started noticing that some of the small dinosaurs were displayed really big, including the smallest dinosaur that was scaled up to like 8 feet tall. And of course some of the large dinosaurs had to be scaled down.

Mostly I didn’t like that the small ones were suddenly larger-than-life; I’m used to dinosaurs being big, so I would have loved the comparison against the life-sized small dinosaurs.

Not a huge thing, but the Virtual Reality simulator wasn’t dinosaur-themed, just thrill- and adrenaline-themed. Maybe there was a dino-themed option, but we got put on bungee, trill ride, and flying simulators. So I just didn’t really see the point of a non-dinosaur VR add-on.
