New & Improved Dinosaur Safari

You are here


Six petrifying, prehistoric, animatronic dinosaurs have landed in Blackpool after travelling all the way from the USA.

The life-size creatures are now in pride of place in our newly improved Dinosaur Safari, which has been redesigned and spruced up ahead of their arrival.

Each of the new additions is a replica of some of the most extraordinary animals ever to roam the earth - including a Dilophosaurus, a Parasaurolophus, three Troodon, a Carnotaurus, a Deinonychus and a baby Stegosaurus. Each of the incredibly realistic models has its own set of sounds and actions, bringing our ever-popular Dinosaur Safari to life.

Our Dinosaur Safari, with realistic models of some of the best known pre-historic monsters, still remains an extremely popular part of any day out here at Blackpool Zoo. The area has undergone a huge transformation in recent months and looks amazing with the new dinosaurs in pride of place.

Blackpool Zoo is Open!

As part of Step 2 of the national roadmap out of lockdown we are allowed to open once again.  

However, we are not allowed to open indoor areas (until 17th May): the indoor eating area of the cafe is closed, as are the indoor viewing area of animal houses including elephants, big cats, giraffes, small primates, gorillas and orangutans. These animals all have access to their outdoor enclosures, however they may take themselves inside during inclement weather.  Lemur Wood and Rainbow Landings remain closed.

A full list of restrictions and measures in place can be found here.  Please ensure you read them before you book your tickets as they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

We look forward to welcoming you to Blackpool Zoo.
