Dinosaur Safari is a Star Attraction and included with the Bronx Zoo Admission ticket. No additional ticket is required. Admission tickets must be reserved in advance. Dinosaur Safari is FREE for Zoos PLUS, Land & Sea, and Conservation-level Members!

During a NEW walk-through experience, you’ll get up close with 52 life-sized dinosaurs and pterosaurs in the Bronx Zoo’s Dinosaur Safari.


This year’s adventure not only features more animatronic dinosaurs than ever before, but also BIGGER ones.

Walk Among Dinosaurs!

Want to meet some of the largest animals to ever walk the Earth? How about the Quetzalcoatlus, the largest flying animal to ever live? Want to dig up ancient fossils and discover the very latest scientific discoveries about dinosaurs? Explore the walking trail and experience up-close encounters with massive creatures from the past—and learn what they have in common with animal species that still share our planet.

Birds ARE Dinosaurs

The first birds evolved from dinosaurs around 150 million years ago. Along your walk, you’ll encounter some living dinosaurs in the form of Dalmatian pelicans (coming soon!), and learn about the similarities that exist between dinosaurs and the birds you know today.

Dig for History

At our ADA-accessible dig site, you’ll dig up ancient fossils, compare them to moving dinosaurs, and hear from our dino guides about the important lessons fossils can tell us.

Explore the Latest Discoveries

Learn how much dinosaur science has changed even in the past few years. New discoveries about these ancient creatures are still being made, and your safari will reflect cutting-edge scientific knowledge.
