Zoorassic Park 2 Opens March 14, 2015
It’s going to be another year of prehistoric proportions as Zoorassic Park returns to the Tulsa Zoo.
In its second season, Zoorassic Park 2 will take guests back in time with several animatronic creatures, many new joining a few returning favorites.
The temporary exhibit will showcase 11 dinosaur species, nine of which are making their first stop at the Tulsa Zoo. The exhibit will also feature two bugs, including a grasshopper and ladybug. These displays will feature magnified creatures of the natural world, showcasing their hidden beauty while changing the way you look at insects.
A few featured dinosaur species include the 40-foot long Tyrannosaurus Rex, a top-level predator with serrated teeth. Other dinosaur species include the Baryonyx, a carnivore that preyed on fish. Guests may also recognize the Triceratops, an herbivore with three horns on its head.
These giant displays were designed by Billings Productions of McKinney, Texas. Each display is built on a steel frame and their exterior is covered with intricate rubber skin, giving them a lifelike appearance. Each dinosaur display is animatronic, allowing for realistic movements, including the ability to gnash their teeth and roar.
Zoorassic Park 2 opens March 13 and will be open daily through Aug. 31, 2015.
Tickets are $4 for members and $5 non-members, plus general admission. You can purchase Zoorassic Park tickets at any admission booth or at the members' window.
