Meet Life-Size Dinosaurs at Jurassic Quest, Dec 28-31


Jurassic Quest, North America’s largest and most realistic dinosaur event is coming to the New Jersey Convention Center from Dec 28-31. This traveling dinosaur exhibition brings the prehistoric era to life with over 80 living, breathing, and walking carnivores, herbivores, and all the dinosaurs in between. Leading paleontologists collaborated for this exhibit to ensure each detail was historically accurate. The dinosaurs look so realistic, from the scales on their back to the fur and feathers on their heads – you won’t believe your eyes. It’s hard to tell if you’re watching the dinosaurs or they’re watching you! Jurassic Quest is chock full of fun activities and interactive stations for your littles to learn, enjoy, and play.

Dino lovers can ride on the back of the 24 foot T-Rex, the spiky Carnotaurus, or one of these many other pre-historic species.

Your littles will adore the Dinosaur Petting Zoo, where they can meet dinos that are more their size, calmer to interact with, and available for great photo opportunities (although they might steal a cap or two off their heads!) The baby dinos love to play and meet the guests that greet them during the event. Additionally, the adolescent T-Rex, Spinosaurus, and other adolescent dinos run around and interact with guests during certain times.

In addition to visiting and interacting with these prehistoric creatures, your littles can dig up fossils just as real paleontologists do. It’s time to unearth fossils that are millions of years old! The event also features face painting, arts & crafts, and science stations where your littles can make their own plaster fossil to take home and quiz themselves on dinosaur facts they learn from the exhibit.

Kids VIP tickets (unlimited rides and activities) cost $34. Regular kids tickets cost $20 and include the Dinosaur tour, Dinosaur exhibit, Dino cinema, science stations, and crafts. Kids under 2 are free. Adults tickets cost $20.
