Dinosaurs Roar, In Not To Distant Chicago
I absolutely loved (and still do) dinosaurs when I was a kid. It could be that I wanted to be a paleontologist and was always digging into the old "Zoobooks" magazines. It was definitely reinforced when my mom took me to the theaters to see Jurassic Park back in 1993 (ouch that hurt). Well now I have another opportunity to see (and take my kids to see) an amazing experience that was in Dubuque back in 2017. I'm talking about the one, and only, Jurassic Quest!
Tri-stater's can enjoy an amazing family-friendly show in Chicago and see why Jurassic Quest is America’s biggest and most popular dinosaur event, while walking among them at Navy Pier March 3rd trough the 5th!
Jurassic Quest brings in "skyscraping" dinosaurs for supersized family fun. We're talking get up close and personal with life-sized, realistic dinos. You'll see them move and roar, all without the fear of being eaten! Jurassic Quest spares no expense in bringing the dinosaurs to life.
Literally loved by millions! That's right, over 2 million followers on Facebook! Jurassic Quest brings families HUGE memories. This amazing indoor adventure offers a load of unique experiences for all ages, and apparently there are some brand new features this year. Here's a list of what you can expect!
- You can walk among animatronic dinosaurs! These were created with the help of paleontologists to be as true-to-detail as possible.
- Enjoy the largest rideable dinosaurs in the USA!
- Check out the Baby & Walking Dinosaur Shows (like the one seen above)
- Get the family involved with activities like fossil digs, multiple exhibits, inflatables, and a soft play area.
- Meet the babies like in the video above! Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex, and Trixie the Triceratops. They'll be with one of the star "dino trainers": Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Captain Caleb, Prehistoric Nick, or Park Ranger Marty!
- Dig for fossils; check out some real T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn, and a life-size dinosaur skull; all part of the fossil exhibit.
I'm telling you this is THE place for dino lovers, looking for an exciting and unique experience for the whole family.
