Primeval World

One of my favorite parts of a train trip around Disneyland is the section from Tomorrowland to Main Street, the Grand Canyon Diorama and Primeval World. Like most boys, I had (well, still have) a fascination with dinosaurs. And to see the large terrible lizards in real size and action was always a thrill. To this day, I will ride the train to see the diorama's and marvel at the dinosaurs. Both of these photographs are press photos with attached information.

Breathtaking Battle- Disneyland dinosaurs Battle atop a volcanic mountain in this three-dimensional scene from 100-million years ago. The most feared of all, Tyrannosaurus Rex, shakes his massive tooth-filled head at a smaller Stegosauraus who makes up for his lack of size with two brains, armor plates and a death-dealing tail. They are among 46 huge "Audio-Animatronic" creatures in Disneyland's new "Primeval World" seen by passengers aboard the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad.

The Dawn of History is Now- Huge Brontosaurus herds like this roamed the earth 200-million years ago. Now Walt Disney brings them back to life in full-size, three-dimensional realism through art of "Audio-Animatronics". These are among 46 famous dinosaurs and other pre-historic creatures seen in Disneyland's new "Primeval World" along the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad.

Awesome! Primeval World is one of my most favorite things at Disneyland... And it came as a total shock. Somehow, knowledge of it escaped me when I was planning my first trip. Me, who loves steam trains and dinosaurs! I was in utter elated shock the first time I rolled by it ^_^
