      The Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience has been millions of years in the making.

      The Dinosaur Experience, which had a grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, features 27 full-scale dinosaur fossil casts from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, ropes courses, a theater, café, a childrens learning center and a gift shop. Located at 44895 W. U.S. 50, the center is officially open to the public.

      This museum started as a dream awhile back ,and the family have always been fascinated by dinosaurs according to Zach Reynolds. And the goal is to educate locals and tourists alike. Right now, the museums theater is playing a film about the history of the "Bone Wars" archeological battle that happened in the area. Eventually, Reynolds wants to show a film about the museum itself.

      When it came to collecting the historical resources, "we worked with bonafide paleontologists," Reynolds said, such as Mike Triebold, the owner of the Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park.

      Triebold helped the Reynolds family with much of the paleontological resources and sold them dinosaur casts.

      "Many of the dinos are casts Mike found in the field," Reynolds said.

      The museum is waiting for a stegosaurus cast to come in from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Reynolds said the cast, dug up by Kessler in the 1930s, is considered to be one of the most complete in the world.

      In addition to the casts, the center also features 16 full-scale, anatomically-correct animatronic dinosaurs that interact with guests.
