Don’t miss this ultimate safari adventure! If you don’t have your tickets yet, let us convince you. Here are 15 reasons you can’t miss LSC After Dark: Born to Be Wild:
Have you ever eaten an insect before? It’s really not that gross – and millions of people across the world do it!
Head over to our Pride Lands Fair and show your friends how brave you are by trying an insect at the Bug Buffet. In the past, we’ve given out yummy crickets and grasshoppers. See what we have in store for you this month!
Our popular summer adventure, Dino Dig, is back for the season. In our outdoor dig site, you’ll channel your inner paleontologist by uncovering 60+ fossils, including T-rex bones and teeth, a 6-foot-long Triceratops skull, and even a dragonfly fossil.
This month, enjoy a beer tasting and specialty cocktail bar courtesy of Blue Moon! They’re joining us in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, when humans stepped on the Moon for the first time.
We’re also serving Lion King-inspired cocktails throughout the night, including the “Hakuna Matata,” “Sahara Sunset,” “Jungle Juice,” and “Be Prepared.” Dare to try them all?
Our newest premium exhibition is Sean Kenney’s Art Made with LEGO® Bricks! See 1+ million LEGO pieces come together to create jaw-dropping sculptures of wild animals, all created by Brooklyn artist Sean Kenney.
The exhibition also includes a hands-on play zone where you can dream up and build your own wild creations using LEGO bricks. Be sure to share your creations with us using hashtag #MadeAtLSC!
Sean Kenney’s Art Made with LEGO® Bricks is available for an additional $6.
Picasso? Van Gogh? None of them can match the artistic talents of our Madagascar hissing cockroaches! Watch them get their legs painted with non-toxic paint, and then create a gorgeous work of art right in front of your eyes. We’re even giving away some paintings for guests to take home!
