Dinosaurs at the Saint Louis Zoo
Walter Knoll Florist is sponsoring Dinosaurs at the Zoo. Dinosaurs are making a monster arrival at the Saint Louis Zoo in 2008 from April to September. The immersive exhibit will feature 17 life-size animatronics dinosaurs in a naturalistic setting on Zoo grounds. Their booming roars, curious clicks and adorable chirps will fill the air and transport you to a land before time.
Many educational opportunities will be incorporated into this exciting exhibit. This is an opportunity for us to teach children and adults about animal extinction, developing theories, animal adaptations, regions where dinosaurs have been discovered, the science of paleontology, and dinosaur descendants that are on exhibit at the Zoo.
The charge to experience this exhibit will be $3 per person ($1.50 for Zoo members). Guests will receive a printed interpretive guide as they enter the Dinosaurs exhibit. A pathway will take guests along a route as they learn about dinosaurs of different sizes, shapes, categories, and regions. Young visitors may also want to take a ride on the 3D Motion Simulator featuring a dinosaur theme (additional fee) or dig for dinosaur bones in the Dino Dig at the end of the path. Each child will leave with their very own dinosaur bone.
The Dinosaurs exhibit will be located near the new Orthwein Animal Nutrition Center and River’s Edge, on the east side of the Zoo. Visible signage will direct Zoo visitors to the exhibit location.
