Dino Safari, presented by Reliant, lets you journey back in time to explore a recently discovered herd of dinosaurs in this educational adventure that’s fun for all ages. You’ll become part of the zoo’s field team as you hop on board a shuttle for a tour of the research camp, observe dinos in their habitats, and help search for what is rumored to be a newly-hatched Amargasaurus!

You’ll see more than 30 life-size animatronic dinosaurs, have photo opportunities to capture DINO-mite memories, and get surprise close-up encounter with a dinosaur along the route.

For more fun with dinosaurs, check out:
– Dinosaur World Live performances at the ISIS in Downtown Fort Worth
– Prehistoric Park exhibit in Grapevine’s Meadowmere Park, plus after-dark hours
– and When Instruments Roamed the Earth by the Fort Worth Symphony

You’ll experience the all-new Dino Safari exhibit on a guided shuttle tour where guests ride on a tram. Each tram holds eight to 10 people, and guests must stay on the tram throughout the exhibit tour. The zoo has a tram that’s an ADA-compatible vehicle and can accommodate one wheelchair per ride. Strollers will need to be stored at the entrance to the exhibit.
