Next summer will see the debut of a rare highly-themed attraction at Cedar Point: Dinosaurs Alive! on Adventure Island, located on the large wooded island that's currently encircled by Paddlewheel Excursions. According to the park's press release, over 50 handcrafted life-size animatronic dinosaurs will roar and move. Four of the dinosaurs will have interactive consoles that will allow guests to guide their movement, and the largest will be the Ruyangosaurus at 40 feet tall and 72 feet long.
An excavation site and paleontological dig will round out the new area's offerings. Dinosaurs Alive! will be an entertaining educational tool, as there will be informational signs for each exhibit, as well as guides and fossil displays.
Soak City will also be adding a new mat-racer slide complex, after many years without a major new attraction in the waterpark. More details to follow on this addition.
