Looking for a little dino-mite fun with the family this July? Then you should definitely take a trip over to NYC’s The Bronx Zoo for “Dinosaur Safari” and explore the wonders of the prehistoric world and hop aboard a paleontologist’s wagon and take an exciting journey back to a time when dinosaurs ruled the world. Visitors will encounter 16 large-scale majestic animatronic creatures, some up to 40 feet long who snarl, roar and even spit!
To celebrate this summer-long exhibit, the Bronx Zoo is running a Dinosaur Safari Sweepstakes, now thru August 15, 2013. The grand prize is a fun-filled NYC weekend that includes a 2-night hotel stay, a VIP tour of the Bronx Zoo, tickets to Broadway’s “The Lion King” and dinner at a premiere Southern-style barbecue restaurant. Six runners-up will also receive prizes ranging from Bronx Zoo memberships, giftcards to Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar and Carvel and more!
