Tagged in: Kids, Victoria Day Weekend, Weekend


This year, the Zoo will welcome an additional dinosaur to the exhibit for a total of 16 life-sized animatronic giants to thrill visitors of all ages. The exhibit is scheduled to open at 1:00 pm on Thursday, May 18.

Dinosaurs Alive!® will feature 16 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs throughout a forested path in the Zoo. The exhibit offers visitors the opportunity to step back in time to the prehistoric era as the lifelike dinosaurs move and roar demonstrating how they may have looked and moved in a natural environment millions of years ago. In addition to the dinosaurs themselves, the exhibit features a dig site and excavation site where children of all ages can discover what it’s like to be a paleontologist.

Dinosaurs Alive!® is made possible through support from presenting sponsor Artis REIT as well as numerous supporting partners and sponsors.
