Opening day is set for May 14, rain or shine, as long as the region is in Coronavirus Response Phase 4 or better.
Among the monumental upgrades is an indoor Jurassic Gardens adventure featuring several dozen lifelike — and many life-size — animatronic dinosaurs, plus a gift shop, arcade, fossil dig and “lab.”
That’s not to mention the jaw-dropping 1920s carousel and music machine hall, the re-engineered entryway or the high-tech admissions system that will both cut wait times and allow ticket holders to come and go at multiple points of entry.
Speaking of which, one new point of entry should especially appeal to lovers of modern muscle. Showroom 5’s vintage car collection is giving way to late-model Mustangs, Challengers, Vipers and ’vettes.
All in all, there will be roughly 28,000 square feet of newly constructed or completely renovated interior space to explore.
