Discover The Dinosaurs Roams Wicomico Civic Center

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - It's the sights and sounds of a pre-human era: the age of the dinosaur tracks forward. 

Well, for one weekend in Salisbury, at least.

"You're creating a time portal to the past," said Taylor Hughes, a show manager for Discover the Dinosaurs.

For nearly two years, creators of Discover the Dinosaurs allow for man to walk amongst the extinct reptiles, designing life-like movements of seven-foot tall robotic creatures at the press of a button.

Hughes says, "it's like that initial 'wow' when you walk in and see these huge meat eaters. It's definitely my favorite job I've ever had."

WMDT walked through the portal in the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center, entering the land before time and getting up-close and personal with some herbivores, like the Apatosaurus and carnivorous beasts, such as the Velociraptor.

According to Hughes, the event is designed for all-ages, teaching them fun facts about the one-time rulers of the land along the way.

One fact: Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex are similar in stature, but the latter has one less finger. Allosaurus has three fingers on each hand, while the T-Rex has two.

The action opens up at the Civic Center on Friday from 12PM to 9PM and the event stays in Salisbury all weekend long.

The dinosaurs will be on displace on Saturday from 10 AM to 9 PM and on Sunday from 10 AM to 7 PM.
