Prehistoric dinosaurs and contemporary cell phones are a reasonable paradox during Liberal’s Mid-America Air Museum’s Dinosaurs of Kansas exhibit, thanks to Epic Touch Co.
Epic Touch is sponsoring a cell phone audio tour that has been created exclusively for the Dinosaurs of Kansas. The interactive cell phone tour, combined with the movements of the animatronics and exceptional lights and sounds, provides an extraordinary experience at each dinosaur site. Visitors will be given a phone number to access the audio tour on their own cell phones.
“This mobile technology is an ‘edu-tainment’ feature providing a fun learning experience,” said Linda Ward, marketing and advertisement director for Epic Touch Co., Elkhart’s cable, telephone and internet provider and local nationwide wireless provider in Elkhart, Liberal and Guymon. “While cell phones are only 40 years old and dinosaurs are millions of years old, together they provide an extra feature for a more enjoyable adventure. Epic Touch is happy to be sponsoring this part of Dinosaurs of Kansas. Everyone should take their cell phones when they tour the dinosaurs.”
The exhibit features some of North America’s best life-size animatronic dinosaurs that have been displayed from St. Louis to Sydney. The herd of dinosaurs - virtual denizens from the distant past - will be at the Mid-America Air Museum, 200 W. Second St. in Liberal through May 5. Museum hours are weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays 1-5 p.m. Cost is $6 for children ages six-12 and $10 for all persons ages 13 and over.
