Some Dinosaurs Have Escaped At Detroit Zoo - Public Is Safe

Royal Oak, MI - They’re big, they’re bold, and they’re coming soon to the Detroit Zoo. Nineteen large animatronic dinosaurs arrived today in preparation for the May 13 opening of Dinosauria.

The mammoth creatures were unloaded from several large semis onto a lush, three-acre DinoTrail recreating prehistoric life. Each dinosaur is built on a steel frame by Billings Productions of McKinney, Tex., and covered with intricately painted foam rubber skin.

Supported by Hungry Howie’s Pizza, Dinosauria will be open daily May 13 through Labor Day, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (until 7 p.m. Wednesdays during July and August). Tickets are $3 for visitors of all ages and will be available at main admissions and at the Dinosauria exhibit during regular Zoo hours or online at www.detroitzoo.org.
