Originally scheduled to go extinct on September 4, “Dinosaurs!” will now remain open until September 16 so more visitors can meet the prehistoric giants face-to-face.

Guests can stand beside a life-size animated Triceratops and Stegosaurus, get up close and personal with a Parasaurolophus and Ankylosaurus and witness the power of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Other activities include a dinosaur digging site and the opportunity to leave dino footprints while walking in the steps of giants.

The aquarium announced that last month saw the highest-attended July since 2001.

“Dinosaurs!” is included with regular aquarium admission.

The NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island is located at 374 Airport Road in Manteo, North Carolina.
