“Dinosaurs Alive!” at the Louisville Zoo

“Dinosaurs Alive!” is now open at the Louisville Zoo, 1100 Trevilian Way, through Sept. 30. Through the magic of incredible, futuristic technology, the mammoth, life-like animatronic creatures that roar, snarl and move will depict a full-blown dino-reality experience to visitors as they travel back in time along a lush, winding pathway where the enormous primeval creatures lurk at every turn.

The robotic dinosaurs are built on steel frames by Billings Productions of McKinney, Texas, and high-tech electronics and air pistons power the dinosaurs’ menacing claws and gnashing teeth while a booming sound system gives them their distinctive roars and chirps. One of the animatronic creatures can even be operated by visitors using a remote control box.

A special attraction fee of $5 applies for non-members in addition to regular Zoo admission and $4 for Louisville Zoo members. Children age 2 and under are free. Groups of 15 or more may call (502) 238-5348 in advance for group discounts.
