Dinosaurs have risen in Kansas and are taking the city of Derby by storm, the Wichita Eagle reports. No need to worry though, as these dinos are all animatronic and have been awoken to entertain the public and brief them on an ancient history lesson that really puts Kansas on the map as an invaluable paleontological site.


The dinos are part of an “extravagant” theme park dubbed “Field Station: Dinosaurs” that officially opened its gates in Derby on May 26.

According to the Wichita Eagle, the 14-acre dinosaur theme park is the first major attraction to open in the area in the past few years and is filled The Derby theme park features 44 life-size animatronic dinosaurs that “roar, breathe, and blink” and promises to “make this whole world disappear when you’re in the park,” says Guy Gsell, executive director of the park with exciting activities for the young and the old alike, as well as with dramatic exhibits that would make anyone pause for gasp.

Derby’s theme park cost $6.5 million to put together and is built around three main areas: the “Dinosaur Path,” which is the park’s prime attraction; the “Challenge Dome,” an indoor rope course; and “Jurassic Golf,” a mini-golf course.
