What Can You See/Do at Jurassic Quest?

There will be so many dinosaurs to see at Jurassic Quest, part of me wants to go myself! On their Facebook page, Jurassic Quest says it's the " largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibit". Dinosaurs that will be there include "50 foot long Megalodon, 60 ft. long, sky-scraping Spinosaurus, the 80 ft. long Apatosaurus" and, of course, a huge lifesize T-Rex.

On top of being able to see those massive dinosaurs, there will also be dinosaurs that you can RIDE and a baby dinosaur and Raptor Training Experience that you can interact with. Yeah, your kids can ride on a dinosaur. Now that's a great photo op!

There will also be a fossil dig and a fossil exhibit to check out while you're there. So not only can your kids be wowed by the dinosaurs, but they can also learn a little about these huge creatures that used to roam the earth.
