An Ohio amusement park has opened its version of "Jurassic Park" featuring life-sized, animatronic dinosaurs that move and make sounds.

The "Dinosaurs Alive!" attraction at Kings Island had its grand opening Thursday, days after one of the 60 dinosaurs caught fire.

Kings Island spokesman Don Helbig says no one was hurt in the fire Tuesday night that was confined to just one of the dinosaurs. He said the cause of the fire that broke out during construction was not clear.

Billowing smoke was captured on video by people traveling on Interstate 71, alongside the park north of Cincinnati.

The park bills the attraction as an opportunity for visitors to step back in time to periods 245 million to 65 million years ago.
