Loved by millions, Jurassic Quest is kicking off its fall tour with THREE touring shows in North America and Canada – meaning more families than ever can visit the age of the dinosaurs! Watch for upcoming cities and show dates here:

North America’s most popular interactive dinosaur experience is touring with its most beloved and unique experiences for the whole family including life-like dinosaurs, dinosaur themed rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, fossil dig, a “Triceratops” soft play area for our littlest explorers, bounce houses and inflatable attractions, photo opportunities, meet dinosaur babies, dino trainers, and more. 

Guests can walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to learn about the creatures that ruled on land, and “deep dive” into the “Ancient Oceans” exhibit to come face to face with the largest apex predator that ever existed – a moving, life-size, 50-foot-long megalodon! 

The Jurassic Quest herd of animatronic dinos – from the largest predators to playful baby dinos – are displayed in realistic scenes with movement and sound, allowing guests to experience them as they were when they roamed the earth billions of years ago. Jurassic Quest works in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur is painstakingly replicated in every detail, from coloration to teeth size, to textured skin, fur or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved.

Jurassic Quest is the largest and most realistic touring dinosaur event in North America. Since 2013, Jurassic Quest has been touring epic dinosaur experiences treating millions of people across North America to an as-close-as-you-can-get look at the giants that ruled the Earth and sea millions of years ago. Developed with leading paleontologists, each dinosaur has been painstakingly replicated in every detail including the most realistic likenesses, movement and sound. Whether their prehistoric counterpart had skin that was scaly, feathers or fur, Jurassic Quest has spared no expense in bringing the dinosaurs to life. Jurassic Quest sold more than one million tickets in 2019, and hosted more than 2.5 million fans at its Jurassic Quest Drive Thru beginning in 2020. Jurassic Quest now operates three touring versions of its classic indoor event, welcoming fans in 41 states and four provinces in the U.S. and Canada over the past year.
