Adventure awaits at the Zoo’s newest special attraction, Dinosaurs Among Us, running NOW through August 13th. Come face-to-face with nearly 60 life-size animatronic and interactive dinosaurs, during this one of a kind experience. The prehistoric adventure continues with walking dinosaur rides, dinosaur-themed selfie stations, meet and greets with baby dinosaurs and hands-on fossil dig stations.

After your visit make sure to visit the modern dinosaur descendants here at the Zoo—birds! Enjoy interactive bird shows, happening daily (weather permitting) and make wild discoveries as you get an up-close look at falcons, macaws, owls, and more.

A separate ticket is required for the Dinosaurs Among Us exhibit, it is not included with Zoo admission and can be purchased online. Ride tickets will be available at the Zoo and do not need to be purchased in advance. Last entry onto the dinosaur trail is at 3:00 pm. See below for details on pricing and frequently asked questions.
