Some of the largest animals that ever roamed the Earth have made a comeback at the Bronx Zoo. Dinosaur Safari has returned with more dinosaurs than ever before in a new experience that will immerse visitors in a recreation of a world that disappeared millions of years ago.

This is the first time the Bronx Zoo has featured its popular Dinosaur Safari since 2019 and it is back with exciting changes for 2022. For the first time, the immersive experience is a quarter mile-long walkthrough exhibit covering more than two acres of forest. It features 52 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and pterosaurs that move and roar in an accurate depiction of what life looked like in pre-historic times.

Dinosaur Safari adventurers will be awed by some of the largest animals ever to walk the face of the Earth. Storied favorites like the 40-foot-long Tyrannosaurus rex, a favorite species in popular culture that was the apex predator in its time; the lesser-known Omeisaurus, an herbivore that spans more than 60 feet head-to-tail and towers over the safari trail; and the new Quetzalcoatlus, the largest known pterosaur ever to live will all highlight the diversity of life that existed 100 million years ago.

This limited engagement is open to the public and will operate for the 2022 season only, through October 31.
