The Detroit Zoo will soon be transformed into a prehistoric era when dinosaurs once roamed the earth. It will feel more like Jurassic Park than the popular zoo you’ve visited over the years.

For the first time since 2022, 'Dinosauria' returns to the Detroit Zoo.

Dinosauria is an immersive walk-through experience that takes you on a journey along a 3-acre, one-way trail, which immerses you in a prehistoric scene that is teeming with lifelike, animatronic dinosaurs.

Along your prehistoric journey, you'll get to see over 25, life-sized animatronic dinosaurs lurking around every corner including the towering Brachiosaurus and massive Tyrannosaurus rex. You'll even get the opportunity to get your photo with the T-rex.

There will also be multiple hands-on fossil dig sites, dino-themed merch, and more
