ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - You can hear them roar before you even get to see the 18 prehistoric creatures.

Roanoke County Parks Recreation and Tourism Marketing Director Alex North said the educational and adventure T-Rex trail has been a “ferocious success”. Over the span of 64 days more than 17,000 people have visited the robotic dinosaurs.

“It’s been a great learning experience for folks to bring their kids and summer camp groups out here. So, it’s been a great experience. We’ve had 18 animatronic dinosaurs, our dino dig pit which has been very successful, and a great opportunity for the kids to look for dinosaurs’ bones and a bunch of photo ops as you’ll see behind me,” said North.

Explore park is offering 5 dollars off tickets to celebrate the closing of the event.
