Kings Island will feature largest animatronic dinosaur

MASON, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio theme park is announcing a huge new feature — the world's largest animatronic dinosaur.

Kings Island near Cincinnati says it's adding a life-sized Sauroposeidon to its Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit. It arrived Monday in four shipping containers and a dozen people will spend the next two weeks assembling it.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the mechanical creature will be the length of three school buses and as tall as a six-story building.

The North American dinosaur — known as "the Earth Quake Lizard" — was one of the largest in the world at 50 to 60 tons.

Kings Island opens April 27.
