Needless to say, the kids are loving the exhibit.

"It's nice and I like it a lot," 10-year old Francisco Sierra said. "It reminds me of my childhood."

"Honestly, I think they are awesome," visitor Jose Bueno said. "To me, they look realistic."

"It's huge and the tail swings, and it nearly smacked me in the face," visitor Duraius Gotcher said.

You can purchase your tickets at the American Bank Center, or you can buy them online. Tickets start at $18 for adults and $15 for children.
