Some of the largest animals that ever roamed the Earth will be making a comeback this summer at the Bronx Zoo. Dinosaur Safari is returning 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. For the first time, the immersive experience will be a ¼ mile-long walkthrough exhibit covering more than 2 acres of forest. It will feature 52 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs and petrosaurs that move and roar in an accurate depiction of what life looked like in pre-historic times. Dinosaur Safari adventurers will be awed by the new 110-foot Argentinosaurus – one 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, a 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. All will highlight the diversity of life that existed 100 million years ago.

The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds.
With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
