"The 'Roar of the Dinosaur' exhibition was a huge hit at McKee Botanical Garden... over 32,000 people came to see the exhibition during the three months it was at the Garden. Children as well as adults were in awe of the realistic looking, life-sized dinosaurs! We had such a great time watching the excitement on the faces of our visitors, both young and old alike."

- Christine Hobart, Executive Director of McKee Botanical Garden

"Lauritzen Gardens featured the incredible works of Guy Darrough throughout its Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory and Visitors and Education Center from mid-January through mid-May 2019. During that time period for the exhibit, 'Dinosaur Uproar', we welcomed 65% more visitors than in the same period in 2018 and set new attendance records at the Gardens. Just can't say enough about how pleased we are with the result!"

- John Newman, Executive Director of Lauritzen Gardens

Lost World Studios has developed the concept of combining life-like models of prehistoric animals with actual living plants. This combination allows the visitor to glimpse the prehistoric world first hand and then take home an awesome photo.
