Dinosaur Invasion 2018 Syracuse Zoo RGZ

Dinosaur Invasion: 101 Days of Dinosaurs
Friday, May 25 through September 3, 2018


The Friends of the Zoo worked with Texas-based Billings Productions, a leader in the design and production of lifelike, animatronic dinosaurs, to turn zoo grounds into a dinosaur theme park for the summer. This display will be FREE to zoo members and with zoo admission.

Join us for the “official” opening day of Dinosaur Invasion! Thirteen huge animatronic dinosaurs have taken up residence on zoo grounds – and they’ll come alive for the summer on May 25. Experience life-like dinosaurs moving and roaring as you encounter them throughout the zoo’s natural settings and Wildlife Trail. This exciting exhibit, presented by Friends of the Zoo, runs through Labor Day and is free for zoo members and with paid zoo admission. Stay tuned here and check our Facebook page for updates!
