Yes, Triceratops Encounter has been closed for more than seven years.
But, today, Monday December 13, 2010 it REOPENED for the first time, after all these years! It's called once again "Triceratops Discovery Trail", and it looks better than ever!

Take a look at the exclusive pictures we took:

The new sign looks nice, but also temporary, as it lays on the old plaque:


Before:


Now:


This sight makes me almost cry!!:


Another look at the sign:



The "real" queue is not done yet, so our previsions were not entirely wrong. It will open later:


A couple of new railings:


The wait time sign:


Notice how temporary it looks! I guess that underneath it, it still says "Triceratops Encounter":




Work needs to be done here:


Look! A line! This is real!:



A look at the lights:




As we reported some months ago, there was a reason why they were installing these new lights:


There are two different buildings that look like this:



Let's go in, shall we?:




Here she is, in all her splendor: THE TRICERATOPS!:


She looks SO REAL!:


It's like a real dinosaur:


The movement of her body and especially her eyes are really life-like:


From the side:



After a while, the baby arrives!:



She's not her baby though, as all the dinosaur in Jurassic Park are females, and therefore they can't procreate:


They were all done in the lab of Doctor Hammond:



So, what do you think? isn't this one of the best news of the year?? For me it is, that's for sure!! I just hope they will not close it down after the holidays will pass. Let's just wait and see, as I always say.
