Jurassic Quest gets visitors up close and personal with dinosaursCategory: Activities, Performances, & Events
Take Jurassic Park and add Land Before Time and you get Jurassic Quest. This is a step back in time to the world inhabited by dinosaurs.
There are animatronic dinosaurs to scale so visitors get an idea of how big they were. There are also fun things to do for kids. They can sit on a dinosaur or play in the dinosaur playground. Plus there are some slides and other activities to keep them busy.
While the kiddies are playing or coloring their favorite dinosaur – or picking something from the souvenir shop – there are fossils and castings of items from the dinosaur age. Check out those jaws from a jaws great white shark!
While inside the exhibit, the sounds of the dinos surround visitors. The only think I would have added would be some steam and a little more realistic floor. The exhibit is set up in a regular exhibition hall (I visited the one in the Anaheim Convention Center). But that aside, this is a nice little look at dinosaurs close up. And all the kids were anxious to get their picture taken beside their favorite dinosaurs.
