Kings Island To Feature Largest Animatronic Dinosaur


UPDATED: Wednesday April 10, 2013 10:59 AM

A southwestern Ohio theme park is announcing a huge new feature - the world's largest animatronic dinosaur.
    
Kings Island near Cincinnati says it's adding a life-sized Sauroposeidon to its Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit. It arrived Monday in four shipping containers and a dozen people will spend the next two weeks assembling it.
    
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the mechanical creature will be the length of three school buses and as tall as a six-story building.
    
The North American dinosaur - known as "the Earth Quake Lizard" - was one of the largest in the world at 50 to 60 tons.
    
Kings Island opens April 27.
