Zoo Invites Public to Enter the Dragon Kingdom this Spring Break

Monday, Mar 04, 2024

LITTLE ROCK (March 4, 2024) – The Little Rock Zoo is excited to invite the public to roar, soar, and explore its newest dynamic show, Dragon Kingdom, making its debut this Spring Break 2024. During spring break, March 16 to March 24, 2024, Zoo guests will be introduced to these towering figures and learn and be entertained all at once. 

The Dragon Kingdom, presented by the Laura P. Nichols Foundation, will be at the Zoo until the end of September and will be the venue for families who want to be transported to legendary and mythical worlds.  These 14 animatronic, roaring, moving, animated dragons will help guests understand the similarities and connections between animals in our natural world and these mythical creatures.  The Dragon Kingdom entry is part of the regular Zoo admission ticket.  

The Zoo’s activities for spring break will have guests learning about various reptiles and other creatures at the Zoo that have similarities to the legendary abilities of dragons.  From chats about our alligator and our python to crafts in our reptile house, the Zoo will have plenty for the family to enjoy and explore.   The Zoo hours are from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day with special spring break programming featured at various times during each day.       

The Little Rock Zoo inspires people to value and conserve our natural world.  This spring break schedule aims to teach guests about the world’s diversity of animals through its collection of animals representing several countries and at least five continents.  The entire week will include ways to engage, learn and play. 

From wonderful entertainment, live music by Harp, daily penguin feedings, elephant chats, to great ape feedings—the Zoo will feature animals, new insights, and new ways to engage with your Little Rock Zoo! In addition, each weekend of spring break, guests can visit with fairy tale characters who will greet guests at the castle Dragon Kingdom entrance.   

While here, guests can enjoy food, snacks, and drinks from our new food service vendor, SSA, in Café Africa. Guests can also end their day by picking-up souvenirs and gifts at the Safari Trader Shop, also now managed by SSA.  The Arkansas Diamond Express and Over-the-Jumps Carousel will be in operation. 

Come enjoy the Dragon Kingdom during spring break at the Little Rock Zoo! Tickets can be purchased at the Zoo gate.
