Twenty life-size robotic dinosaurs make their way to Lima


For the first time in Peruvian history, citizens will be given the chance to see some of the largest dinosaurs that once roamed the planet, in giant animatronic versions.

The exhibition Dinosaurios Gigantes Animatronics or Giant Animatronic Dinosaurs, will bring its impressive collection of dinosaur robots to Lima from July 16 until August 16, reports Andina news agency.

It’s a show that seduces and surprises the children, but also the parents. The spectacular sizes in ‘Dinosaurios Gigantes Animatronics,’ allows for many people to walk underneath their necks, giving a different perspective, said Gabriel Agosín, general manager of Agosín Events.

The exhibition includes 20 life-size robotic dinosaurs, 4 skeletons, 12 fiber figures, and a complete sample of fossils.

One such specimen spectators will see is the 30 meter long and 3.5 meter tall diplodocus. In addition spectators will see brachiosaurus, apatosaurus, and of course the Tyrannosaurus Rex, among others.

The exhibition was created by Agosín Events who have built projects for Dreamworks and have traveled to Colombia, Brazil, Hong Kong, and more locations to share their exhibition.

The event will take place from July 16-August 16 at the Plaza Norte shopping center.

Peruvians are big fans of dinosaurs. At times, not for the greater well-being of its communities. In the Arequipa district of Yura the case of dinosaur fanaticism resulted in the prioritizing to build a dinosaur park despite the local governments inability to even provide water to its community. The exhibition Dinosaurios gigantes animatronics will be in Lima from July 16-August 16.
