Know anyone who loves dinosaurs? This upcoming event is probably the closest they'll get to get up close and personal with the powerful prehistoric beauties including Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, Microraptor and of course, the big guy himself, T-Rex.

Dino Safari, an immersive drive-thru dino adventure, comes to the Wisconsin State Fair Park Sunday, April 18 through Sunday, May 2, 2021. 

From the comfort of your car, check out giant moving dinosaurs roaming around, learn how dinosaurs evolved over time, where they called home and the discoveries paleontologists have made about how they ate, moved and behaved.

For added excitement, earthquakes might erupt, dinosaurs could battle and your family might just have to help save a baby dinosaur’s life during the journey. 

Dino Safari was developed by a leading producer of museum exhibitions and in consultation with paleontologist Dr. Gregory Erickson. Dino Safari’s fun and family-friendly audio guide plays directly through each car’s audio system in either English or Spanish.

Plus, every visitor to Dino Safari gets a Survival Pack that includes a scavenger hunt, coloring activity and other fun surprises for a more interactive experience.

“We are thrilled to be bringing this safe and fun experience to families into the Milwaukee area, particularly in light of the many challenges everyone has faced over the last year,” said Tom Zaller, President & CEO of Imagine Exhibitions, producer of Dino Safari. “Our animatronic dinosaurs transport visitors to a land of prehistoric proportions!”

Advance purchase is strongly recommended. Ticket prices begin at $49.95 per vehicle and are available here. Dino Safari is a COVID-safe excursion.
