This outdoor attraction sits under the night sky in Orlando at The Florida Mall, and welcomes visitors with amazing light-up sculptures of beloved dinosaurs, mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and more.

Many of these dinosaurs roar, move, and tower over guests, offering a unique look into millennia gone by.

More Dinosaur Attractions & Fun

Your family may come for the terrifyingly beautiful dinosaurs, but will stay for the hands-on attractions at Dino Safari! This year's activities includes a dino fossil hunt and safari dig, the Jungle Explorer Playground, Dino Speedway, and the Oviraptor Ride (for adults and kids). 

LuminoCity Dino Safari Orlando offers special theme nights, where visitors can dress in costumes and unleash their inner paleotologist, adventurer, or even T. Rex! Check the event website to find out when these days are scheduled.

If you want to take a little piece of the dinosaur-themed event home with you, visit the Lumi giftshop, where families can shop for souvenirs, toys, and of course, stuffed dinosaurs.
