They may have roamed the earth 65 million years ago but dinosaurs are certainly alive in the new exhibit Dinos Alive! at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo!
This isn’t the first time dinosaurs have come back to life at the Zoo. The outdoor exhibit came to the park a few years back, and thanks to its popularity, Lowry Park Zoo decided to bring back the moving, roaring prehistoric creatures for one more blast from the past.
The limited time exhibit features life-size replicas of such dinosaurs as tyrannosaurus, brachiosaurus and suchomimus. Dino Alive is intended to allow guests get up-close and personal with the varying species, all of which can move, roar and interact. Visitors will learn how dinosaurs adapted and thrived for millions of years, as well as why they went extinct.
The return exhibit also features special activities areas that visitors can explore with a “Dino Passport full of fun facts.” There is also a fossil fun dig site and a new show “Dinos Among Us.” Eating during the Dinos Alive! exhibit is even exciting. The recently refurbished Dino Grill will make meal time keeps with the prehistoric theme with dino-sized food and drinks.
Dino Alive is included in regular admission to the Zoo. Visitors will be able to explore the outdoor exhibit daily through August. For a chance to walk amongst dinosaurs look for discounted Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo tickets right here on Best of Orlando.
