The Fossil Pit

National Geographic Ultimate Explorer

In the National Geographic Ultimate Explorer, the team really wanted to create a unique fossil digging experience for families – one that allowed several people in a group to work together in a sort of scavenger hunt, teach the group a little about how real fossil digs work, and to reward the team effort by bringing a dinosaur to life – at life size!

We also had to be sure this attraction was operationally sound, so I used wireless RFID technology and the existing Quest360 engagement system I developed, to create an entertaining, one-of-a-kind fossil hunt experience, where guests from around the park enjoy the spectacle of a completed dinosaur skeleton re-animating into a life size, roaring, stomping, dinosaur on the massive projection screen.
