Dinosaurs will be making a big
comeback this summer in the
Bronx! The Bronx Zoo opened its
Dinosaur Safari, the largest, most
realistic dinosaur ride in America,
to the public on Friday, April 19.
The immersive experience, which
lasts until Sunday, November
3, takes adventurers on a ride
through a two-acre wooded area
of the Bronx Zoo where 40 ultrarealistic,
dinosaurs lurk. For additional information,
