Let the good times ROAR while you’re exploring the dinosaurs at Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival. The world’s most amazing species may be extinct; but this exhibit of animatronic animals look and sound like real creatures. They are designed and built in a facility here in Texas by an in-house team of designers, engineers, sculptors and artists – each highly skilled in their craft and passionate about dinosaurs.
From the smallest, Compsognathus to the 43-foot long Tyrannosaurus Rex, the beautifully crafted dinosaurs are impressive for all ages to experience. For a few days the festival will serve as their natural habitat and everyone who attends may find themselves in the shadows of the predators. Guests are welcome to take pictures, videos, and learn more about prehistoric life and endangered wildlife.
Each dinosaur is fitted with its own electronic brain to activate and control the movements and to produce the sounds. The realistic movements on the dinosaurs are powered by a pneumatic system that enables smoother and finer movements.
Kids age 12 and under receive free admission to Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival set for May 20-22, 2022 in Richardson, TX.
