If anyone finds out, let me know because I REALLY want to go there.
Dawn of Time?
Ever played Scribblenauts? Riding a dinosaur = best way to get anywhere.
Yeah, but that only goes for the Pterodactlyus, this is one of that plant eating tackle lizzard.^^
Dangit, and here I was lookin’ forward to a nice, relaxin’ ride on a Stegosaurus.
And they probably changed the name so it’s ain’t a Stegosaurus no more. Friggin’ archaeologists, always gotta be fuxin’ stuff up fer ever’one. Consarn it!
that’s a Ceratopian of some kind. likely tirceratops. nothing like a stegosaurus
That’s clearly a Triceratops. And I think you mean paleontologists.
Argh! Yes, this isn’t a Stegosaurus, it is Triceratops (also renamed, I’m sure). Here, I’m turning in my Junior Anthropologist badge and ID card….
Sheesh! Could I be more wrong in this thread? Kudos, COD and Steve for the corrections.
*Turns in his Junior paleontologist’s blazer badge and ID card*
It’s ok, just try to hold on to your man card
That’s amazing. **RUNS ACROSS ATLANTIC OCEAN** Oh. Looks like they haven’t fed the brute for a few million years… I got dibs!
And so, Qux was eaten by a Triceratops.
They were vegan… were
It could be at the Creation (ahem) Museum. P.Z. Myers had himself a little dino ride a while back. http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2009/08/the_creation_museum_1.php
The image I’m talking about is near the bottom of the post.
It looks like P.Z. has found this post himself! http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2010/04/im_feeling_oppressed.php
Last summer atheist, professor of biology, and blogger PZ Myers visited Ken Ham’s Creation Museum. There was a model stegosaur for kiddies to ride, so PZ climbed aboard and rode it. He later blogged about it, including giving a picture of him doing the ‘ride ’em biologist’ thing.
That is taken at the Calgary Zoo, in their Dinosaurs Alive section.
Wow, I just took a picture of this sign yesterday, and was going to post it this morning when I saw it here! LOL
Did you post this pic yourself, JD? Good Call if you did! 😄
Not in the Creation “Museum”, it isn’t 😉
No fair – wasn’t this done before? It’s on some dinosaur statue somewhere, to tell people to stay off it. Although it could also be a sign at Ken Ham’s circle jerk establishment – they think the Flintstones is a documentary.
This is probably in reference to PZ Myers’ visit to the Creationist Museum, where he had his picture taken while he was on a model dinosaur.
The original ban was for raptor riding, but a certain fireball wielding plumber disagreed.
There’s a creation museum with a triceratops with a saddle.
That looks like /so/ much fun.
perhaps it’s a sign next to a statue? you can ride the t-rex, but not the trike.
Sorry, that should be triceratops, not stegosaur.
Jurassic Park? Just avoid the raptors.
Jurassic park, anybody?
I think this is from that Creationist museum in Kentucky. They had a display of a Dinosaur with a saddle on it and atheist blogger PZ Meyers one day had a picture of himself climbing it and riding it like a cowboy.
You are now leaving Dinotopia. Riding dinosaurs is no longer allowed. Have a nice walk instead.
If I was going to take a wild stab, I’d say it’s in a museum with a fiberglass dinosaur. But that’d be no fun would it?
That’s racist. Where will I take my pet Triceratops?!
They have these signs at the Calgary zoo in Alberta, Canada in the dinosaur exhibit
why is the triceratops partially decapitated?
Only in Texas!!
Um… or Calgary. lol
Ever hear of Dinotopia?
Did the human race learn NOTHING from 3 Jurassic Park movies?!?
Clearly not, since they made a third one.
Sure, riding a triceratops is pure epic win. But sadly since jurrasic park incidents, these signs started showing up everywhere.
I’m guessing that it’s in a museum about dinosaurs. It probably means “Don’t Ride the Exhibits”.
I too wonder where is this allowed, or where it is a problem large enough to prohibit it…
The creationist’s museum.(there is a mechanized dinosaur to ride to support their idea that dinosaurs co-existed with humans)
Livin’ in the Land of the Lost! (caution, watch out for Sleestacks)
*turns into a giant douchebag*
Ow wow it worked!
Needs to be Mexican bandits riding raptors.
I also took a picture exactly like this one at the dinosaur thing at the zoo in Calgary: http://dreamling.ca/wp-content/gallery/zoo-feb18/IMG_2668.jpg and http://nikonizer.yfrog.com/Himg131/scaled.php?tn=0&server=131&filename=dfrf.jpg&xsize=640&ysize=640 😛
It’s in Calgary, folks! The Calgary Zoo recently updated their ‘Prehistoric Park’ to include a number of really cool animatronic dinos. The signs are there to keep people from touching the exibits (although it’s a triceratops on all of the signs), but they don’t work- I’ve ridden one myself!
I’m thinking that even a short ride would have painful consequences.
well, they do say that history repeats itself…
Calgary Zoo. In Canada.
We have a dinosaur park.
this was prolly taken at some park that has dino’s (not real ones of course) and they are just lettin kids know not to get up on them
I’m gonna say this is near the Triceratops with a saddle at the Creation Museum. Those idiots.
I think this is from a Dinosaur park.. like a fake one.. We have one here where I live – its aprt of our zoo. Its a huge park that has realistic sized fake dinos.. and there are signs everywhere to stay they hell off of them.
oh.. now that I see some other ppls posts, i see that it has already been established that its probaly here in Calgary..
The more important question is…. “Who took a bite out of the Triceratops? And why?”
wait a minute, i know where this sign is from… i think its from the creationism museum. i went there once to look at all the crazy stuff they have (it was hilarious) and they had a giant fake dinosaur out front.
Well, try Jurassic Park – it’s somewhere off the coast of Costa Rica
It’s at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Alberta ( I might have spelled Tyrell wrong) Hope you can ride legally. 8)
In Jurrasic Park, Duh!
i think you might be able to find nasa use the time travel device and go back in time to the dinosaur age and ride one
Haha, I thought I might see that sign here eventually.
Yeah, it’s a sign from the “Dinosaurs Alive” animatronic exhibit, which is currently in my city, in the Calgary Zoo. I have a picture of it on my cell phone. 🙂
There’s an IRL Jurassic Park being built just outside Gibbons, Canada that’s opening at the end of July, they’re going to have dinosaurs you can ride on =D
All these comments, and not one of ’em about the kid riding Uncle Beasley past the White House. Has “The Enormous Egg” book and TV show been forgotten? Did Oliver Butterworth live in vain? Or am I just getting to be older than dirt… sigh. Please don’t answer that.
Oops. Spelled “Uncle Beazley” wrong, sorry. Wonder whatever became of him… pretty sure I saw him at a mall opening in 1969.
they have this at the calgary zoo
Sera and I would like to go too.
