As announced earlier this week, Jurassic Adventure will begin at the Wildlife Safari Park on May 5, 2023.

The exhibition is created by Dino Dan, Inc. The company’s founder, “Dino” Don Lessem, is a world-renowned authority on dinosaurs and was the dinosaur advisor to Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Jurassic Adventure is included with admission to the Wildlife Safari Park.
