North America’s most popular interactive dinosaur experience is back, bigger and better than ever.
Morgantown-area families can walk among the nation’s biggest herd of photorealistic dinosaurs when Jurassic Quest® opens at Mylan Park for one weekend only April 7-9.
Walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to learn about the creatures that ruled the Earth. In addition to life-like dinosaurs, Jurassic Quest’s classic experiences for the whole family include some of the largest rideable dinosaurs in North America, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, including a fossil dig and real fossils like T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn and life-size dino skull, a “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers, bounce houses and inflatable attractions, photo opportunities and more.
New for 2023, Jurassic Quest is bringing more hands-on activities, education and fun. This includes an expanded Excavation Station and more Jurassic-themed rides and inflatables. The animatronic herd has expanded to include fan favorites, the Utahraptor and Giganotosaurus. In addition to “The Quest,” a self-guided scavenger hunt style activity, where budding paleontologists can become Junior dinosaur trainers, Trainers, Jurassic Quest has launched a new video tour that’s already getting “roaring good” reviews from families and features star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty. All expanded activities are included with general admission.
The Jurassic Quest herd of animatronic dinos — from the largest predators to playful baby dinos — are displayed in realistic scenes with some that move and roar, allowing guests to experience them as they were when they roamed Earth millions of years ago. Jurassic Quest works in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur is painstakingly replicated in every detail, from coloration to teeth size, to textured skin, fur or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs looked and moved.
Families also have the unique opportunity to meet the babies, hatched only at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops.
