The World’s Largest Dinosaur (WLD) celebrated a monumental milestone on Monday, August 27, 2018. Eran Rosenthal of Israel was the 2,000,000th person to make the trek up 106 stairs to the mouth of the dinosaur.
Rosenthal received a gift package valued at over $850. The package included World’s Largest Dinosaur merchandise including handmade custom WLD walking sticks, family passes to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, Atlas Coal Mine, and East Coulee School Museum, and 2 nights’ accommodation at the Drumheller Ramada Inn & Suites.
Owned and operated by the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce, the World’s Largest Dinosaur officially opened its doors on October 13, 2000. The towering T-Rex standing 86 feet tall was the brainchild of a group of Drumheller business owners. It was through the determined work of many volunteers and funding from a variety of sources that the project was came to fruition.
