They're big, they're bold and they're back.

More than 40 lifelike animatronic dinosaurs will be a part of the Dinosauria attraction at the Detroit Zoo. 

The summer attraction was last featured at the zoo in 2015.

Visitors enter a "zoorassic" world as they travel back in time along a DinoTrail recreating prehistoric life.

The giant creatures lurk at every turn, including adult dinosaurs, youngsters and even a nest with eggs and hatchlings.

Dinosauria is open daily through Labor Day 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $6 with Detroit Zoo admission for visitors ages 2 and older and are available at main admissions, the Dinosauria ticket booth or online.

A dino dig site and fossil-sifting station give budding paleontologists the opportunity to search for clues about the lives of dinosaurs.

Additionally, there will be a simulator ride titled Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The Ride." Tickets are $5 with Detroit Zoo admissions.
