Enjoy the educational aspect of the exhibit and learn how dinosaurs evolved over time, where on earth they lived, and the discoveries paleontologists have made about how they ate, moved, and behaved. Dino Safari features fossils, a Dig Pit, interactive games, cutting-edge research, and many varieties of advanced animatronic dinosaurs.

Once your family has roamed with the Raptors and slid down the Sauropod Slide, check out the other family fun awaiting at North Point Mall. Dive into digital gaming fun at PLAYlive Nation for a premium social gaming experience. Give parents a chance to relax or SHOP without interruption by dropping the kids at Hi-Five Sports Zone where kids can spend their evening playing sports, games, skills challenges, listening to music, and eating pizza.
