WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you suffer from ornithoscelidaphobia, you might want to avoid the Wilmington Convention Center this weekend. That’s the fear of dinosaurs.

Those who are not afraid may enjoy Discover the Dinosaurs. The traveling, interactive exhibit runs tomorrow through sunday.

Children and parents alike can see museum quality, moving dinosaurs in life-like scenes.

“It’s definitely not your normal exhibit,” assistant manager Taylor Hughes said. “Were you just to sit there and watch, it’s not a theatrical thing. It’s an interactive exhibit. We have buttons you can move or press to control different parts of the dinosaurs, buttons you can press to activate them. They move, they roar, they look like they’re alive.”

Beyond the exhibit, additional fun activities are available for kids of all ages such as scavenger hunts and dino digs.
