Lowry Park Zoo pass holders can get a special sneak peak at the new DinoQuest2 exhibition on Thursday.
Over 20 life-sized dinosaur replicas will come to life using realistic movements and natural sounds in a lakeside forest setting.
"Guests will be immersed in a diverse group of animals that were the dominant vertebrates on our planet for over 160 million years," said Craig Pugh, executive director and CEO. "We hope to engage and educate our visitors about the diversity of life on Earth."
More than half of the animatronic creatures are new to the DinoQuest2 exhibition, along with some dinosaurs from original DinoQuest exhibition that was at the zoo in 2011.
The new replicas include the gargantuan Giganotosaurus, one of the largest and most powerful predators, and the well-known Stegosaurus, a long lizard-like herbivore.
DinoQuest daytime admission has a special attraction fee of $4 per person (ages 3 & up), in addition to regular Zoo admission price.
The exhibit will be at Lowry Park Zoo through May 28.
