On Wednesday I posted about how the Bronx Zoo Dinosaur Safari street team was going to be out and about in certain locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Hoboken, NJ.
Did you happen to see any of the street team members? They were kind of hard to miss. Check them out.
The street team donned a dinosaur tail to get attention and to tell people about the new Dinosaur Safari attraction at the Bronx Zoo.
This summer, Bronx Zoo guests will be immersed in the wonders of the prehistoric world as they hop aboard a paleontologist’s wagon and take an exciting journey back to a time when dinosaurs ruled the world. Visitors will encounter 16 large-scale majestic animated creatures, as well as baby dinosaurs and nests, representing numerous species that once roamed various areas of the globe.
The limited engagement outdoor exhibit setting will evoke a primeval forest where visitors will ride through a prehistoric environment that showcases the brilliant colors, scales, and fins that latest scientific research reveals may have adorned these incredible beasts. By comparing these adaptations of dinosaurs with similar features found in modern animals, the visitor will get insight into why animals look the way they do across time and the fascinating adaptations that help them thrive and survive.
Guests will disembark at the Dinosaur Safari Field site and experience what it feels like to be at an archeological dig. Guests can uncover fossils at three fossil digs, explore real dinosaur artifacts, pose for a picture atop a mighty T Rex, and even control a robotic Stegosaurus! Within the park, visitors can create hands-on dinosaur crafts and fossil rubbings, take home a memory from the dinosaur merchandise cart, catch the 4-D experience; Ice Age; Dawn of the Dinosaurs and watch the magical new theatrical performance of Adaptations! A Dinosaur Musical.
My family and I will be checking out the Dinosaur Safari and other attractions over the summer. I’ll share our experience along with some photos of the various exhibits.
