Thanks to the enthusiastic response to the Dinosaur Festival in Delhi, a second version is now being organised in Chennai. To be held from June 10 to 19, visitors at the festival will be able to experience full-size replicas of the prehistoric reptiles. 

The biggest draws at the festival are animatronic iterations of dinosaur sub-species such as Isisaurus, Rajasaurus and Bruhathkayosaurus. Jurassic Park fans are in for both thrill and awe, should they chance upon a Tyrannosaurus Rex—the monstrous carnivore that roamed the face of the earth during the later Cretaceous Period. 

All of these replicas will be arranged in a walkthrough-style setup and are expected to offer an immersive look into the world of dinosaurs. Activities include games and activities and photo booths where visitors can get snapped alongside the giant reptiles. 

The festival will be held at Chennai Centre. Tickets start at ₹710. Public schools in the city will be offered free tickets for Monday and Friday.
