Sure they probably didnt hibernate, but polar dinos where far from similar. Polar Allosaurs existed, but they where far smaller than the jurassic killer. Same with many animals. Some, like some giant amphibians survived only because their competion cant survive their. In this case Crocodiles.

NMV P150070, a left astragalus, stopped bein considered a pigmy Allosaurus species 13 years ago

Its now considered an indeterminate abelisauroid ceratosaur, or less probably an indeterminate neovenatorid carnosaur :)
