MASON, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio theme park is announcing a huge new feature — the world's largest animatronic dinosaur.
Kings Island near Cincinnati says it's adding a life-sized Sauroposeidon to its Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit. It arrived Monday in four shipping containers and a dozen people will spend the next two weeks assembling it.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/ZBAILS ) reports that the mechanical creature will be the length of three school buses and as tall as a six-story building.
The North American dinosaur — known as "the Earth Quake Lizard" — was one of the largest in the world at 50 to 60 tons.
Kings Island opens April 27.
