Dinosaurs Invade the Los Angeles Zoo

Dinosaurs at the zoo

If your kids are as "Jurassic Park"-obsessed as mine were last year, they'll enjoy a journey to the Los Angeles Zoo's "Dinosaurs Unextinct at the L.A. Zoo" exhibit. Unfortunately, the attraction costs an additional $5 beyond the usual entry fee (members also have to pay extra), but the little ones will still get a kick out of the 17 animatronic dinosaurs on display.

I took the Blogger Kid 2.0, and he was immediately transfixed by the music (yes, "Jurassic Park's" recognizable soundtrack is on the speakers) and the life-size dinos. It's not a big exhibit, but the dinos and a few interactive displays will keep the kids interested. Some pics:

Yes, this bloody scene was the Blogger Kid 2.0's favorite, of course.

It was a little disappointing that the dino exhibit closed an hour earlier than the rest of the zoo, so that there wasn't a chance to see the dinosaurs one more time as we were leaving. (I suppose that's so zoo attendees won't stampede the exhibit at the end of the day.) I had a disappointed kid on my hands, as he didn't get to see that dino scene one more time!

"Dinosaurs Unextinct" continues at the L.A. zoo through Oct. 31.
