Dinos & Dragons
Date: May 6 to September 17
Dinosaurs are roaring back to life at Brookfield Zoo! They’re bigger and better than ever and they’ve brought some of their mythical dragon friends. The zoo’s new Dinos & Dragons will feature 17 animatronic creatures, including the Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, and Chinese dragon.
Along the winding outdoor path, guests of all ages can explore the origins of myths and legends through culture, literature, and paleontology that is illustrated on engaging signage. Inside a tented area, zoogoers can get up-close views of live reptiles, including a 6-foot-long Komodo dragon, seen for the first time at Brookfield Zoo.
The temporary exhibit will also have hands-on activities, as well as a dinosaur dissection lab, dino dig boxes, and an excavation site.
Admission to Dinos & Dragons is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 3 to 11 and seniors 65 and over. Additionally, a free live theatrical show featuring animatronic dinosaur raptors will take place daily at the Stage-o-saurus Theater.
