MASON, Ohio -- Kings Island is announcing a huge new feature -- the world's largest animatronic dinosaur.
The park near Cincinnati says it's adding a life-sized Sauroposeidon to its "Dinosaurs Alive!" exhibit. It arrived earlier this week in four shipping containers and a dozen people will spend the next two weeks assembling it.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/ZBAILS) 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.
