Jurassic Quest at Iowa Events Center

Jurassic Quest at Iowa Events Center

Who LOVES dinosaurs? Since Jurassic World has made it’s debut in theaters, what is an awesome way to celebrate?! Attending Jurassic Quest!


Of course, there is no need to see Jurassic Park or Jurassic World, because Dinosaurs are totally cool anyways! I am super excited to take Monte to Jurassic Quest this Summer at the Iowa Events Center.

Jurassic Quest allows people of all ages to walk through and experience “living and breathing, even WALKING dinosaurs“.

People look at two animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rexs on display at the Jurassic Quest event held this weekend at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, Calif., on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014. The indoor exhibit features  life-size, realistic animatronic dinosaurs from the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods. Visitors can interact with the dinosaurs and learn about them and even ride a few. There will be a T-Rex and Triceratops fossil digs where young paleontologists can uncover long hidden dinosaurs bones. Their is also a "Dino Bounce" children's play area with several, towering, dinosaur theme inflatable mazes. (Doug Duran/Bay Area News Group)

This event will include over 50 life-size dinosaurs including Dino babies you can touch. Take a Dino tour and learn about how they interacted in realistic scenes! There will be fossil digs for the littles ones. There is also a designated area called the “Dino Bounce” which includes: dinosaur inflatable mazes, face painting, dinosaurs you can ride, Dino crafts, and more!
