ALBANY – From pteranodons to triceratops to T-rex, a prehistoric mix of dinosaurs is invading Albany this weekend. It's the third stop for "Jurassic World Live Tour" produced by Feld Entertainment, which runs through April 2021.

"Our dinoteers, super-athletic, super-well trained and well versed to bring these dinosaurs to life," said A.J. Peterson, Performance Director for the show. "They're actually inside some of our smaller ones and then the bigger ones like T-Rex are actually driven in from remote stations like in the arena."

Some dinosaurs weigh 140 lbs. or more.

"It feels kind of like you're getting strapped into a fighter jet and everything that you do you feel the weight and really have to be in sync with your body, because the dinosaur is just an extension of your own body at that point," said dinosaur operator Charles Clark. "Every time we come onto the floor we can hear the crowd 'ooo' and 'ahhh' and gasp."

The tour will be here in Albany through Sunday, October 13.
