T. Rex exhibit comes to Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - T. Rex Planet comes to the Exchange Club Fairgrounds in Albany for a huge dinosaur display and event Saturday and Sunday.

There will be a range of fun and engaging activities designed to appeal to and engage all members of the family.

The event simulates what it would be like to experience the Jurassic, Triassic, and Cretaceous periods first hand.

"Each individual dinosaur will be making its own noise, breathing its own way. We have the signs in front of each dinosaur where they get to learn about it, what it was from back in the day, in a historical, educational way," said Don Dice, the CEO and Manager of the exhibit.

The main exhibit features life size ultra-realistic animatronic dinosaurs; over 50 life size dinosaurs in all.

Visitors can interact with these creatures, learn about them and even ride a few. It features realistic scenes, enormous dinosaurs, cute baby dinosaurs, and lots of fun activities for kids of all ages.

There's a huge fossil dig where young paleontologists can dig up ancient bones, and a "Dino Bounce" area with tons of dinosaur themed inflatable bounce houses.

The dinosaur exhibit and the bounce houses are all indoors.

Check them out on Saturday February 7th from 10am-9pm and on Sunday February 8th from 10am-7pm.

Tickets start at $15. Children under age 1 get in free.

The Exchange Club Fairgrounds are located at 810 South Westover Blvd. at Oakridge Drive, Albany, Georgia 31707.
