The Nashville Zoo’s newest exhibit, featuring animatronic dinosaurs, opened Friday morning.

According to the zoo’s spokesman Jim Bartoo, DinoTrek is scheduled to run through the end of July and features various recreations of dinosaur species including Brachiosaurus, Megalosaurus, Styracosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Admission to the exhibit is separate from the regular zoo admission and is $3 for zoo members and $4 for non-members. It also contains a “Dino Dig” feature where children can “excavate” fossils.
