Tired of staring the same three pigeons out your window on your lawn since April? Do you want something to break the monotony of our global cabin fever? If you live near Vancouver, Canada, or have a fleet of helicopters and don’t save money, you can soon turn your boring garden into one Jurassic Park.
On August 9, Able Auctions opened over fifty giant animatronic dinosaurs in British Columbia, including T.Rexes, Triceratops, Raptors and a 72-foot Brontosaurus. The auction will also show “Hundreds of fossils, animatronic equipment, lighting, speakers and more”
While Able Auctions has not released any information about the mysterious seller or answered our emails to confirm whether his name rhymes with Schmon Schmamond, The Vancouver Sun suspected that the business in question was probably Experiential Media Group ( Canada) Corp. acts. They themselves had acquired the assets from Dinoking Tech Inc., an animatronics company that was founded in 2007 and also dealt with Titanic artifacts. This seems to be a business model based solely on blockbusters from the mid-1990s.
But before you do anything or not, you could run a dino park. Maybe think about whether you should. During its brief existence, dinomatronics had had little revenue by being part of a traveling exhibition and traveling to cities around the world. But since the company filed for voluntary bankruptcy on May 5, 2020, these dinosaurs have probably gone under because the corona virus has stopped most of the massive events.
Those who are not interested in spending tens of thousands of Canadian dollars on lawn jewelry with an Albertosaurus will still be able to marvel at these relapse miracles before they are split up. The auction house will allow sighting of the disused dinosaurs on August 5. So, remember to put on a mask, wash your hands, and head over to Vancouver to take a look at a 13-year animatronic adventure.
