Dallas Zoo


An adventure of epic proportions opens at the Dallas Zoo this spring, and you won't want to miss it! ZooNorth transforms into a prehistoric jungle with over two dozen larger-than-life dinosaurs waiting to be discovered. From the ferocious T. rex to the feathered Citipati, explore giants that roamed the earth long ago, and see how Dallas Zoo animals are related to these creatures of the past. We've got something everyone in the family can enjoy, all included in your general admission and FREE for Dallas Zoo Members.


  • Discover more than 24 larger-than-life dinosaurs throughout ZooNorth
  • Manipulate our robotic dinosaurs that let you see inside at how the animatronics work
  • Hunt for fossils in our Dino Dig Zone
  • Catch the daily "Train a Dino" demonstration
  • Build dino puzzles with giant dinosaur bones
  • Compare your skills with "Jump like a Dino" and "Spit like a Dilophosaurus" activities
  • Engage throughout the Zoo with an interactive timeline, educational activities, and conservation programs
  • Sit for a while and take in the DinoSOAR show Presented by Kimberly-Clark (Wed.-Sun. at various times)
