Hi ,

I am looking for a review of the TREX from Johnson Animatronics.

I am looking for a reliable animation for this years haunt.

Just curious, would a t-Rex be better for a dinosaur museum rather than a haunt? Johnson makes quite a few monster animations, unless of course you're just partial to dinosaurs or a prehistoric theme.

I have one and I must say I like it and it's well revieved at Disturbia! I think the reason people like it is because of the fact that you Don't see them in many haunted houses. Thats what makes a haunt different by offering things that's beyond the normal. So yeah you expect to see it in a museum but it's one hell of a surprise when he jumps after you in a Haunted House!!! With that said it took me 2 years to get it and the train and dino I bought from them. The way I ended up getting them was last year I went to their booth at Transworld and gave them the option of bringing ( the train and dino) them to Bama after the show of pretty much have my bama boys whip their ass right there in front of everyone. They chose to be escorted from the show to Bama ( an unwelcome detour I am sure). I do know of 3 Dino's being owed and 2 trains. I was just told this past week that their power has been shut off, they owed other vendors and was behind on rent. Sad two years ago I liked their stuff better than anyone's that was at the show. I don't think they sold anything this year and probably will be their last.

Bottom line think outside the box that's what's going to set you apart from your competitors. Just DON'T LET THEM PULL ONE OVER ON YOU UNLESS THEY WILL C.O.D IT TO YOU!!! Shane and it's Good Luck Man! Shane

I really love that thing .. with the way i plan to use it, it will be suitable for both a haunt and a museum. Lots of WATTS , BASS and buttkickers / rocking floor.

Here's the same dino for less than their advertised web price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/190663681838?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

Plus, they would have to ship quick or risk having you file a claim with ebay and Paypal and getting your money back.

This was the item i was thinking of originally. Seemed like a big risk, even with the ebay/paypal protection.

Thanks Shane for the heads up. I also love the stuff these guys have (or never build/ship)
