Special Event

Dino Safari Weekend

May 25, 26 & 27, 2024
9:30am - 4:30pm

Opening Memorial Day weekend, Flamingo Gardens presents Dinosaurs Around the World: The Great Outdoors, a captivating outdoor exhibit featuring 13 animatronic dinosaurs that come to life with incredibly realistic sound and lifelike movements. Travel back to the time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and Antarctica was green! Grab your prehistoric passport and discover how land bridges, volcanic activity, and plate tectonics allowed dinosaurs such as T. rex, Spinosaurus, Hadrosaur, and more to disperse all over the globe, giving each of today’s continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles.

Dino Safari Weekend will allow guests to get their first look at these amazing creatures as they move, snort and roar their way into the Gardens.  The weekend will include the opportunity to “excavate” fossils and see a movie short in the Gallery, about the evolution of “Dino-Soars,” or birds, and how they are truly modern-day dinosaurs.  There will be live music by the Shadow Creek Band from noon – 3pm on the Wray Lawn, kids’ activities and dino-themed gifts and snacks available for purchase.

Dinosaurs Around the World: The Great Outdoors is open daily to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a limited engagement, May 25th through September 2nd, 2024, and is included in your admission.
