Animatronics dinosaur show opening at the Jacksonville Zoo

Monday, March 18, 2013

Amazing very old has enthused incredible new at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.
The DinoTrek show, which skin texture 21 life-size animatronics dinosaurs, will be introduced with an impressive aperture festivity from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The revels comprise a marionette show, cartoon artist and photo opportunities with Jazoo, the zoo's mascot. The show will persist during June 30, said Gina Stiles, zoo presenter.
The show doorway is at the back gate of the Trout River Lodge. Stiles said guests pass through a Jurassic Park-like gate, pursue a hazy path to a moat, cross over on a balanced dock and enter a profoundly forested area where the dinosaurs move, roar and snarl. DinoTrek also offers a dig site when kids can dig up fossils.
The show is a almost all-new version of DinoAlive!, which came to the zoo in 2011, Stiles said. It was shaped by Billings Productions Inc., which provides life-size animatronic dinosaurs for zoos, museums and theme parks.
Ticket to DinoTrek is $3 for zoo members and $3.50 for non-members in adding to regular zoo admission of $14.95 for adults, $9.95 for children (ages 3 to 12) and $12.95 for seniors. The zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It's located at 370 Zoo Parkway, off Heckscher Drive. For more, call (904) 757-4463 or go to
