Dinosaurs Alive! is an animatronicdinosaur themed area for children located at several Cedar Fair parks. Kings Island was the first park to open the attraction in 2011, while the other parks opened their attraction in 2012. The version of this attraction at Kings Island is the world's largest animatronic dinosaur park. A $5.00 fee is required in order to enter the attraction. Each park also features Dinostore, a gift shop filled with dinosaur toys and souvenirs.
Each version of this attraction is different in every Cedar Fair park since each version of the attraction vary in size and the amount of dinosaurs each attraction has. As of now, Kings Island's version of the attraction is the largest out of all five versions, which is also the world's largest dinosaur park containing sixty dinosaurs.
There are several types of dinosaurs used in this attraction. Dinosaurs can range several feet in height and length, many of them larger than a full-sized elephant. The largest dinosaur on display, the massive Ruyangosaurus, is more than 30 feet tall. Below is a list of all of the dinosaurs featured at each park:
 A Dilophosaurus from Dinosaurs Alive! located at the front entrance of Kings Island. Dinosaurs Alive! entrance at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. Dinosaura Alive! exhibit entrance at Canada's Wonderland.
Although all of the dinosaurs are life-sized, only a few of them are animatronic while most of them don't move at all. Although in Cedar Point, all of the dinosaurs are animatronic and are capable of moving. Some of the animatronic dinosaurs are interactive, allowing visitors to press buttons on the dinosaur's sign that will control the movement of various body parts depending on where the button is located (e.g. button on snout opens jaws, button on throat thrashes neck, and button on rear makes the tail sway). The non-interactive animatronic dinosaurs are activated when a special sensory camera in front of them captures movement, and they will begin to move in various ways, depending on which dinosaur or species they are. Accompanying the various movements are roaring, bellowing, and/or shrieking sound effects erupting from hidden speakers to make it seem as though the dinosaurs are calling noisily to one another.
A dinosaur-related 3D movie is currently shown at Canada's Wonderland, Kings Island and Kings Dominion in their respective Action Theaters with the motion seats removed. The film is included with park admission except for at Canada's Wonderland admission to Dinosaurs Alive! is required.
