DElAYED START: open at 10 a.m. on Sunday, February 17
For the safety of our staff and guests we will open this morning at 10 a.m., and will be open until 8 p.m. for a day full of dinosaurs, lights, and snow! Thank you for your understanding.
Dinosaur UpROAR
Don't miss this life-sized adventure through the fauna and fearsome flora of Lauritzen Gardens that's fun for the whole family. Dinosaur UpROAR offers a realistic glimpse into the prehistoric world, allowing visitors to experience what life was like millions of years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The indoor exhibit will feature 20 life-sized installations positioned throughout the garden, where massive creations by Guy Darrough and Lost World Studios will appear right at home nestled among plants that have survived through the ages and jungle-like landscapes.
Dino-Nights
When the gates close and the sun goes down, guests get to explore the garden's "Jurassic dark." Get an evening fossil fix that's fun for the whole family when the sculptures of Dinosaur UpROAR are illuminated for a limited time.
Girls' Day: Japanese Doll Exhibit
