Dinosauria at the Detroit Zoo

Life-like dinosaur on DinoTrail at Detroit Zool

This summer, the Detroit Zoo in Oakland County is going prehistoric with the famous Dinosauria exhibit. One of the largest outdoor dinosaur exhibits of its kind, Dinosauria features 29 enormous, life-like animatronic dinosaurs that shift, roar, and spit. The zoo’s most exciting summer attraction, presented by Michigan First Credit Union, began on May 28th and runs through September 5th, 2022.

Attendees will reverse the clock and walk along a beautiful, three-acre DinoTrail recreating the age of the dinosaurs. The huge, ancient creatures are stationed alongside the trail, and include dinosaurs of all types and ages. The animatronic dinosaurs are masterfully crafted, their motions are life-like, and their roars loud and clear. Be careful, though, the dinosaurs might spit water if you get too close!

In addition to the DinoTrail, kids can become paleontologists for the day. Dinosauria includes multiple hands-on fossil dig sites that give children the opportunity to learn about prehistoric life. Plus, stop by the Jurassic Outpost for unique dinosaur gifts, games, and apparel.

The dinosaur exhibit is open every day through Labor Day, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $6 dollars for visitors two years old and older. Dinosauria tickets do not include admission to the Zoo. The tickets can be bought at the main admissions stand or on the Detroit Zoo’s website.
