The largest and most realistic dinosaur event in North America is BACK, BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! SoCal families can walk among the nation’s biggest herd of photorealistic dinosaurs when Jurassic Quest® returns to Los Angeles for the first time since 2019. Dinosaur fans of all ages can ring in the New Year downtown with the dinos at the LA Convention Center from Dec. 28-31.
Close out the year with Jurassic Quest and its most beloved and unique experiences for the whole family including life-like dinosaurs, 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.
Last year, we had the opportunity to experience the Jurassic Quest drive-thru dinosaur experience on opening day and truly enjoyed it. While there was a long line of cars, we enjoyed the tour through the land of the dinosaurs in about 45 minutes (start to finish).
This year, Jurassic Quest can bring families memories this BIG! Walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods to learn about the creatures that ruled on land, and “deep dive” into the “Ancient Oceans” exhibit to come face to face with the largest apex predator that ever existed – a moving, life-size, 50-foot-long megalodon! Meet the babies, hatched only at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex, and Trixie the Triceratops – and, you may even catch one of our star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick, or Park Ranger Marty!
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 the earth billions 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 and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved.
