Summer begins with a roar at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo as DINOSAURS! returns Thursday, May 6. Back for its fifth season at the Zoo since 2003, this wildly popular exhibit features 18 super-sized animatronic creatures that seemingly come to life.
This summer, DINOSAURS! features returning favorites like the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex and the water-spewing Dilophosaurus, while introducing new specimens like the thick-horned Carnotaurus and the toothy Sarcosuchus. Half of the robotic giants have never before been seen at the Zoo.
Built on steel frames and powered by air pistons and state-of-the art electronics, these lifelike giants move and roar along the shores of the Zoo's Waterfowl Lake. In 2009, more than 400,000 guests delighted in the prehistoric experience.
Admission to DINOSAURS! is just $1 per person in addition to regular Zoo admission. DINOSAURS! is free for school groups through the end of the school year, Zoo members and children under 2.
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with hours extended to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Admission is $10 per person, $7 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children under 2 and Zoo members.
