The Zoo’s newest exhibit, Dino Discovery presented by Wells Fargo, will give you the opportunity to hear dinosaurs roar, see them move and take in a pre-historic experience like no other. Featuring 15 life-sized, animatronic dinosaurs, some at heights of almost 20 feet, Dino Discovery will take you on an expedition down a trail filled with magnificent creatures that once roamed the earth over 160 million years ago. Search for fossils in the Dino Dig, learn from a dino expert and even get your picture taken with a T-Rex.
Once you’re in the Zoo, explore Dino Discovery for only $3 (plus tax) for members, $5 (plus tax) for non-members, or you can purchase an unlimited attraction wristband for only $8 (best value).
Follow the dino footprints to the exhibit!
*Every dinosaur has sounds and movement. The combined effect may be too intense for small children.
