Experience dinosaurs at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Dinosaurs are taking over Cleveland Metroparks Zoo!  The new limited-time Dino Cove experience near the Zoo’s Waterfowl Lake allows guests to get close to the largest animals to ever walk the earth.

Explore a collection of more than 25 animatronic dinosaurs, hands-on experiences including a fossil dig pit and dynamic photo opportunities.  Stand alongside a 65-foot-long Brachiosaurus and 40-foot-long Tyrannosaurus Rex and much more.  Guests can learn about dinosaur species across the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, including their diet and other dino facts.

Admission to Dino Cove is $3 for members, $4 for nonmembers per experience.  General zoo admission is also required.  Dino Cove is included in the Wild Savings Pass for $14.75, which gives guests access to Dino Cove, and one-day unlimited rides on the Circle of Wildlife Carousel, Boomerang Line train rides and 4-D Theater.  Wild Savings Pass also includes a keepsake KeyBank Adventure Key to explore more than a dozen new Adventure Key interactive learning stations throughout the zoo and new for 2024, locations at all five Cleveland Metroparks Nature Centers.

Tickets for Dino Cove may be purchased at several locations throughout the zoo including the Zoo’s main box office.
