DINOSAURS AROUND THE WORLD represents the next generation of traveling dinosaur exhibitions. In this dinosaur adventure, guests travel the globe to discover the huge assortment of dinosaurs living on each of the seven continents during the Age of Reptiles. Accented by a multi-layered narrative, DINOSAURS AROUND THE WORLD brings the Age of Reptiles to life like never before in an experience that thrills and educates visitors. Dinosaurs were the dominant terrestrial animals throughout the Mesozoic Era (also known as the Age of Reptiles). During their remarkable 172-million-year reign, they adapted into a variety of forms from long-necked herbivores as large as whales, to the tall and mighty T. rex! Continental drift, and the land bridges that would appear and disappear over time due to sea level fluctuations and volcanic activity, allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe, leaving each of the Earth’s seven continents with its own unique assortment of these giant reptiles.
