(Omaha, NE) -- The Lee G. Simmons Wildlife Safari Park in Ashland will open for its season on Saturday.

“We always look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Wildlife Safari Park, but especially this year to celebrate the 25th anniversary,” said Gary Pettit, superintendent of the Lee G. Simmons Wildlife Safari Park. “We plan to make this an extra-special year, kicking off with dinosaurs arriving May 5 for Jurassic Adventure. What a great way to celebrate! We hope more people than ever will come out to the Park and explore!”

Jurassic Adventure will include some of the world’s largest and most life-like robotic dinosaurs roaming the Wildlife Safari Park from May 5 to October 1. The dinosaurs will be scattered throughout the Park to give an authentic dinosaur safari feel as guests enjoy their visit. Jurassic Adventure includes full-sized dinosaurs and handmade animatronics created with scientific supervision. Visitors will be able to dig in fossil pits and can consult a Jurassic Adventure Guide Map identifying all the things to learn, see and do at the Park.

Jurassic Adventure is included with Wildlife Safari Park admission and membership. The price for adults, ages 12 to 64, is $12. The price per child, ages 3 to 11, is $10, and a senior’s admission, ages 65 and older, is $11. Military personnel receive $1 off in all categories. Wildlife Safari Park Memberships are available for $75 or as an add-on to your Omaha Zoo membership for $65. A Safari Park Membership is good for one year from date of purchase. The Wildlife Safari Park is open from late March through October with daily hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
