Calling all dino lovers: you won’t want to miss the Dino Safari walkthrough adventure happening at Faneuil Hall right now. With over 30 specimens of life-sized moving replicas, from the mighty T.rex to the massive Brachiosaurus, this exhibit promises to give you an out-of-this-world Jurassic experience. Here’s five reasons why you don’t want to miss out on this thrilling dino adventure:
1. These life-sized dinos are super realistic—AND they move!
These aren’t your typical dinosaur replicas. As you walk through Dino Safari, massive pterodactyls bat their feathery wings while a family of triceratops roars triumphantly— just as you walk past them. You’ll feel the thrill of standing right next to 10-feet tall giant dinosaurs, turning their heads and talons towards you! It’s an exhilarating visual experience for dino lovers both young and old.
2. It’s an educational activity for the whole family.
Even the most seasoned dino experts are sure to learn something new on the Dino Safari adventure. Next to each of these paleolithic creatures are signs explaining just how these dinosaurs used to live on earth, in easy-to-understand language. You’ll learn how dinosaurs evolved over time, where on Earth they lived, and how they ate, moved, and behaved.
3. It’s a COVID-safe experience.
Dino Safari is both a fun and safe activity for kids and families to enjoy right now. This experience is hands-free and takes place in a spacious venue with ample room for social distancing. Safety measures and guidelines are followed to a tee by the staff, so you can enjoy this fun experience without any worry.
4. The downtown location is unbeatable.
Dino Safari is located on the second floor of Faneuil Hall, right by the rotunda. That means that you’ll be right next door to the dozens of food options and shopping opportunities! Whether you’re craving some classic clam chowder, lobster rolls, pizza, or pastries, the vendors on the first floor of Faneuil Hall have your lunch and dinner plans covered. Plus, there’s some great clothing stores nearby, so you can make a full day of plans in the area.
5. You’ll love the gift shop!
If you’re dino-obsessed, you won’t want to miss the gift shop on your way out. From plushies to t-shirts, puzzles to piggy banks, and games to keychains, this gift shop is seriously well-stocked. Plus, you can check out a VR game station at the end of the tour that takes you on a virtual journey of a Jurassic theme park. It’s the cherry on top of an incredible dino experience.
