What’s really, really, really, really, really, really big, has lots of teeth, and is coming to the Clark County Event Center? Dinosaurs! Jurassic Quest is the largest exhibition of lifelike, moving, museum-quality dinosaurs in North America. From Friday, Oct. 13, through Sunday, Oct. 15, this family-friendly dinosaur adventure will be in Ridgefield, allowing you and your children to safely explore the world of dinosaurs. (Unlike the movie “Jurassic Park,” no goats or lawyers will be harmed.)
Jurassic Quest is an interactive experience that takes participants from the Middle Triassic to the Late Cretaceous eras with the help of over 80 animatronic dinosaurs. There are also lots of kid-centric activities beyond the exhibit, giving young paleontologists a chance to see, touch, ride, and dig up their favorite dinosaurs.
Tickets are $18 for kids ages two to 12, $16 for adults, and $14 for seniors age 65 and up and those with military ID. To purchase tickets, click here, or buy tickets at the door. The ticket price includes the exhibit, crafts, and coloring stations. Tickets for rides, inflatables, and fossil digs are $5 each. Kids’ VIP tickets (ages two to 12) are $29 and include the exhibit, crafts, dinosaur cinema, and unlimited rides, inflatables, and fossil digs. For all ticketholders, there’s an additional cost for face painting and green-screen photography.
