Jurassic Quest 2016: Where Dinosaurs Come Alive

Jurassic Quest 2016: Where Dinosaurs Come Alive


A/N: I was given tickets in exchange for promoting this exhibit, however, if you are a longtime reader, you know I only promote products and events that I truly believe in, or I know will be of interested to my readers.

If you're a product of the 90's or 80's by now you've probably seen at least one movie from the Jurassic Park saga. (And if you haven't yet, I grant you permission to stop reading, turn on Netflix and binge). As a kid, Jurassic Park was solely responsible for my obsession interest in dinosaurs. They were fascinating and incredible creatures. One can only imagine what it would be like to witness their power up close in personal.

But what if you could?




That's where Jurassic Quest comes in. Jurassic Quest is the largest exhibition of lifesize, moving, museum-quality dinosaurs in North America, and it's coming to a town near you. This dino extravaganza features more than 50 ultra-realistic animatronic dinosaurs. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the dinosaurs, learn all about them, and even take one for a ride (or two).



Once they're done learning about the dino's, your young paleontologists can uncover long hidden dinosaur bones in the fossil pit. Then, they can burn off all that energy in several huge dinosaur themed inflatable mazes.


ACTIVITIES

  1. So glad this is coming to Hickory! My little guy is going through his dino love phase and I've been pretty much a fan of the Jurassic Park series and would love to learn more about dinos.
