A Trans-Dimensional Joyride to the Dinosaur Age

Travel back in time on a perilous race to rescue an Iguanadon before the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs strikes.

Step inside the halls of The Dino Institute, a one-time secret research facility and museum that is home to real fossils dating back to when dinosaurs walked the earth. During narration provided by Bill Nye the Science Guy, stroll past prehistoric exhibits and behold the colossal skeleton of the carnivorous Carnotaurus, one of history’s most feared dinosaurs.

A Secret Mission
Make your way into the research control center and watch an informative video about your adventure into the primeval past aboard the CTX Time Rover—your vehicle for the trip back in time.

The presentation takes a turn when you're recruited to rescue a mild-mannered Iguanodon from extinction and return back to the present with the 3.5-ton dinosaur.

There’s just one problem: The date you're being transported to is around the same time that a giant meteor hit the Earth and caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Can you find the Iguanodon and return back to the present in time to avoid the cataclysmic event?

Blast to the Past!
Board a sturdy, 12-seat Time Rover and race through a darkened forest in search of the tagged dinosaur. 

Experience the world as it existed 65 million years ago! Speed past a spiky Styracosaurus grappling with a nearby tree. Brace yourself as you careen through unpredictable hairpin turns, a ragged Alioramus foraging for food nearby. Dart around a fearsome Velociraptor hunting for prey and avoid the clutches of a Cearadactylus soaring overhead.

As the countdown clock ticks, meteors crash all around you: The end is near. Suddenly, the terrifying roar of an unimaginably huge beast can be heard in the distance. Is it the friendly Iguanodon you’re searching for—or the dreaded Carnotaurus looking for a meal?

Time is nearly up. Will you complete your mission and make your escape? Or will you join the dinosaurs and become extinct?
