SANDUSKY — Cedar Point amusement park will build a $1 million animatronic dinosaur attraction expected to open next summer.

Officials at the park in Sandusky in northern Ohio said Friday that the life-sized dinosaurs in Dinosaurs Alive! will roar and move. Some also will have interactive consoles to allow guests to guide their movements.

The walk-through attraction will feature about 50 dinosaurs, including one nearly 40 feet tall and 72 feet long. Park officials say the dinosaurs will be handcrafted and covered with skin-like materials replicating their external features.

The attraction also will offer fossil displays and a paleontological dig. Admission will be an extra $5 per person over the park admission.

Cedar Point officials say a mat-racer slide complex also will be added at the adjacent Soak City waterpark.
