Dinosaurs taking over African Safari Wildlife Park

Press Staff Writer

        This summer, African Safari Wildlife Park is going back in time – way back, as more than 20 moving, roaring, life-sized prehistoric creatures will be on display throughout the park’s Walk-Thru Safari, as part of Dinosaur Takeover.
        Familiar favorites like T. rex, triceratops and stegosaurus will be on display, alongside lesser known but equally fascinating dinosaurs, such as the lumbering Lufengosaurus and cunning Australovenator.
        In addition to viewing these animatronic beasts, park guests will have the opportunity to pose for photographs in oversized dinosaur eggs or the jaws of a T. rex; mine for real dinosaur fossils to take home (for an additional fee); discover how these animals hunted, survived and cared for their young in a prehistoric world and learn how to protect today’s wildlife from the threat of extinction.
        “Dinosaurs have a universal, enduring appeal that inspires wonderment in all of us,” said Kelsey Keller, the park’s director. “Whether you’re one or 100, Dinosaur Takeover is not to be missed.”
        Dinosaur Takeover, which is included with general park admission, will begin in June and run through Monday, Sept. 4. More information is available at africansafariwildlifepark.com/dinosaurs.
        African Safari Wildlife Park is located at 267 S. Lightner Rd., Port Clinton.
        Extended weekends
        Warm-weather fun kicks off at African Safari May 13-14 with Extended Weekends.
        During May Extended Weekends, the park’s Walk-Thru Safari—featuring kangaroos, warthogs, porcupines, lemurs, macaws and more than a dozen other species – reopens for the season, and attractions such as educational animal shows, camel rides and tortoise feedings return.
        Extended Weekends run every Saturday and Sunday through Memorial Day weekend, when the Park offers its full slate of attractions daily for the duration of the summer season.
