The dinosaur adventure continues with an indoor exhibit for families to get up close and personal with the creatures of the ages. Jurassic Quest is bringing more than 100 realistic dinosaurs to the Statehouse Convention Center, in Little Rock, from Oct. 8-10.
This one-of-a-kind event will feature dinosaur-themed rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, a “Triceratots” soft play area for the young explorers and aspiring paleontologists, face painting, inflatable attractions, photo ops and more. Guests will journey through the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic periods to meet the dinosaurs of each era, and for even further in-depth exploration, guests will be able to visit the “Ancient Oceans” exhibition to meet the infamous megalodon. This massive predator will almost come to life with its moving 50-foot-long body. A less-threatening and cuter exhibit will feature the dinosaur babies that just recently hatched: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops.
Each dinosaur at the exhibit has been set in realistic scenes as they move and roar for spectators. Expert paleontologists have worked closely with Jurassic Quest to guarantee that the features and habitats of the dinosaurs are replicated down to the smallest detail. Teeth size, coloration, texture, fur and feathers have all been covered through the latest research.
Tickets for the exhibit start at $19 and can be purchased on the Jurassic Quest website or at the door. Ticket purchases include a 100 percent refund guarantee in the event of cancellation or postponement for any reason. General admission includes access to the dinosaur and marine exhibits, arts and crafts activities and dinosaur shows. Rides and activities requiring separate tickets will be available on-site for $5 each, or guests can upgrade tickets to the Kids Unlimited Rides for ages two through 12.
