A life-size animatronic theme park T-Rex burst into flames!!

/ by

A dinosaur theme park lost their life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex Thursday morning when it burst into flames!!

No… not this one!!


According to the co-owner of southern Colorado’s The Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience, Zach Reynolds, the fire probably started because of an electrical malfunction! He was able to joke about it though, writing, “Holy smokes! We always knew T-Rex had a temper but, today he blew his top.”

No one was hurt (except the animatronic dino, of course). 

The park plans to rebuild the big guy ASAP!

    Damn it! Awful sorry, but it’s an incredibly beautiful sight! .. Even a charred skeleton produces a superb impression (many paleontologists got crazy, probably ).
    I think he smoked a pipe, not a cigarettes. Perhaps he imagined himself a dragon. I can wish him only a speedy resurrection from the dead …
    Thank you, Pee-wee!
