Experience Augmented Reality (AR) with the explorers in Sugar Land!


For millennia, dinosaurs were the undisputed masters of the planet, and mankind followed in their footsteps.  Today’s Augmented Reality can deliver an experience like never before, fulfilling our ultimate dream of seeing dinosaurs, explorers, and exotic animals walk among us!   Stand before the AR screen and shake hands with an astronaut, dash through a tropical rain storm or pet a leopard.

Augmented Reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment, whose elements are “augmented” by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory, and olfactory.  With the help of advanced AR technologies, information about the surrounding world of the user becomes interactive, as objects are overlaid on the real world images. This overlay technology differs from Virtual Reality technology, which usually blocks out any outside visual information.


The AR experience is available to all visitors on the first floor screen adjacent to the t-rex.
