Free with Zoo Admission from June 26 to Sept. 19

The Louisville Zoo announced a robotic dinosaur experience that is the world’s largest called Dino Quest. This experience is free with your paid Zoo admission from June 26-September 19 and will feature not only a fun experience but also focus on education. 

Dinosaurs are an extremely important part of animal history, and the ancestors of our reptile animal ambassadors at the Zoo today. The community is invited to come visit the newest members of the Zoo. The Dino Quest is expecting to attract dinosaur fans of all ages this summer.

Guests will encounter 19 roaring, breathing giants from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods of history. They will have the opportunity to view the world’s tallest life-sized, robotic dinosaurs, ranging from 5-foot-long baby triceratops to a 40-foot-long Tyrannosaurus rex.

Curated by Dino Don, Inc. — the world’s leading supplier of robotic dinosaurs to zoos and museums worldwide, and the only maker of full-sized dinosaurs — the handmade animatronics are uniquely created under direct scientific supervision. The company’s founder, “Dino” Don Lessem, is a world-renowned expert and author of 40 books on dinosaurs with experience as the dinosaur advisor to Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” films.

“Great Clips has been a proud partner of the Louisville Zoo since 2015,” said Laura Dugan, former Zoo docent educator and franchisee with Great Clips. “We are very excited to continue our support of the Zoo in summer 2021 by presenting Dino Quest. This thrilling attraction will be a valuable asset for our community in search of fun, outdoor activities with families and friends.”
