Seattle City Light recently installed solar panels to help power the carousel. On Saturday and Sunday, zoo-goers can ride the carousel as many times as they want. (Carousel rides are normally $2.)

The “Dinosaurs. Real Close” exhibit opens on Saturday and runs through Sept. 5. The animatronic dinos will move, roar, snarl, hiss and spit. The dinosaur exhibit costs $3 in addition to zoo admission (free for children 2 and under). It is located next to the West Entrance, near the penguins, where the Butterflies and Blooms exhibit used to be.
