About Jurassic Quest

Jurassic Quest offers unique and exciting experiences for the whole family. There’s no better place to make pter-iffic memories, playing with adorable baby dinos, excavating fossils, and even training a raptor, while surrounded by behemoths like sky-scraping Spinosaurus, Apatosaurus, an incredible 50-foot-long Megalodon, and the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus Rex! A few of the show’s highlights include:

Ride a Dino
