A Prehistoric Family Adventure™, A Place to Eat, Shop, Explore and Discover™ is a unique attraction that features dining and retail in an interactive prehistoric environment. The concept is built around water, fire and ice. Guests visiting
T-REX are greeted with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, bubbling geysers, a fossil dig site and much more, taking them back to a time before humans walked the earth.
T-REX greets visitors with a skeletal version of the Tyrannosaurus Rex outside and, an animatronic version just inside the front door. There is also a 125 foot long replica of the Argentinosaurus, which is not only the largest dinosaur, but quite possibly also the largest and heaviest animal to ever walk the earth. In addition, when guests enter T-REX, they’ll be greeted by a giant animatronic octopus sitting on top of the Shark Bar motioning guests in for a specialty drink and a view of a 5,000-gallon shark tank. Lava rock, greenery and lighting effects combine to transport visitors into a time long ago.
The restaurant is divided into several separate, distinctive dining rooms, each with its own theme and animatronic dinosaurs. The Ice Age Room, for example, resurrects the woolly mammoth, complete with baby and (machine-made) snow. The Sequoia Room is the home of a Triceratops and its infant, along with a 2,000-gallon fish tank. Other exciting areas include the Shark Room, Fern Forest Room, Geo-Tech Room, Aqua Room and an outside deck for dining al fresco.
While the décor may be prehistoric, the food facilities are cutting-edge. The Kitchen of Fire™ offers a brick pizza oven and rotisserie that allow visitors to see meals being prepared. Dishes such as Triassic Tortellini, the Bronto Burger and the one-of-a-kind 18 oz.T-REX Bone-in Rib Eye keep up the dinosaur theme, while delicious desserts such as Chocolate Extinction and Build-Your-Own-S'mores provide the perfect finish to a rich dining experience.
For those who want to take the T-REX experience home, the Dino-Store provides a wide variety of dinosaur-related apparel and gifts. Young dinosaur fans will especially enjoy the chance to take home their own personal dinosaur with Build-A-Dino®, Where Best Friendosaurs Are Made™. Developed by Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. in partnership with T-REX, the store offers several prehistoric animal toys with a variety of accessories and outfits from which to choose. T-Rex is currently opened at the The Legends at Village West in Kansas City, Kansas and at Downtown Disney Marketplace at Disneyworld/Orlando, Florida .
