 “We’re excited to bring dinosaurs back to the Tulsa Zoo,” said Patrick Weisz, the zoo’s vice president of guest experience. “It was important for us to include a wide variety of dinosaurs to maximize learning opportunities for our guests. We’re proud to have representation from the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic eras.”

Zoorassic World allows guests to view dinosaurs placed in natural vignettes throughout the exhibit. Walking tours and an archeological dig for dinosaur fossil casts will be available to enhance learning experiences.
