A new adventure is now open at the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.

The Dinosaurs! exhibit opened Thursday in Gatlinburg. It takes visitors on a trip back through time millions of years ago when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

In addition to some big dinosaurs, the exhibit includes scavenger hunts and several hands-on activities.

"We built it all internally, lots of animatronic dinosaurs in here, lots of iPads interactivity, games for kids going on. People are spending huge amounts of time in this one room. The best part is they get to go out and they get penguins, sharks and everything else right outside the main door," said Ryan Desear.

The dinosaurs exhibit will be open for a year.
