Jurassic Quest Arrives in Salt Lake City!

Walk among the dinosaurs as North America’s most popular, can’t-miss dinosaur adventure stomps into Mountain America Exposition Center, March 31-April 2

We’ve been anticipating the arrival of Jurassic Quest in Salt Lake City for a while now and yesterday, the time finally arrived to get to take some of our favorite kiddos* to go see this incredible experience. We were so excited to get to see what it was like!

Jurassic Quest is every dinosaur lovers dream! It has the largest traveling dinosaurs in North America. Walking about with the animatronic dinosaurs all around makes you feel like your in the Jurassic period.You and your kids will be in awe at how amazing they are!

Throughout the attraction, most displays have video information about the specific dinosaurs you’re looking at. You will learn so much! Learning disguised as fun is one of our favorite things, so we are thrilled about that. There is an interactive fossils dig where you can try your hand at being a paleontologist.

One of the coolest attractions allowed the kids to ride a full size dinosaur of their choosing. Being 10+ feet off the ground on a moving dinosaur gave the kids a good thrill! We also had fun playing in dinosaur-themed bounce houses, blow up slides, driving little Jurassic jeeps, making dinosaur crafts, and even getting our own personal excavation block with shells and rocks inside. There were so many things for us to do and enjoy.

The Jurassic Quest exhibit is such a fun, interactive and immersive experience for all ages. We had an absolute blast at Jurassic Quest and know you will, too. We highly recommend grabbing your own tickets for your own family to enjoy this weekend while they are still in Utah. There is still time to pack up the kids and go back to another time. You will be so glad you did! I can’t think of a better way to kick off spring break!

Loved by millions, only 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 roamed 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 evolution, Jurassic Quest includes an expanded Excavation Station and more Jurassic-themed rides and inflatables. Even our 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 Jr. Dinosaur Trainers, Jurassic Quest has launched a new video tour that’s already getting “roaring good” reviews from families and features our star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty (available onsite and on your phone via QR code)! 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 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. 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.

Year-round Dino Fun Wherever You Are!

Even after the dino herd moves out of town, you can find dinosaur fun at home anytime with Jurassic Quest virtual resources. Join the Jurassic Quest dino trainers as they celebrate Dino Day, Fossil Day and more Dino-tastic days with activities such as Dino Storytime, Show & Tell, fossil lessons and more HERE. Families also can access craft activities, word searches, coloring pages and more provided for free HERE, as well as the extensive Jurassic Quest dino directory HERE. And, the Jurassic Quest theme song HERE is newly remastered with captions so families can sing along!

Jurassic Quest is the largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibition in North America. Since 2013, Jurassic Quest has been touring epic dinosaur experiences treating millions of people across North America to an as-close-as-you-can-get look at the giants that ruled the Earth and sea millions of years ago. Developed with leading paleontologists, each dinosaur has been painstakingly replicated in every detail including the most realistic likenesses, movement and sound. Whether their prehistoric counterpart had skin that was scaly, feathers or fur, Jurassic Quest has spared no expense in bringing the dinosaurs to life. Jurassic Quest sold more than one million tickets in 2019, and hosted more than 2.5 million fans at its Jurassic Quest Drive Thru beginning in 2020. Jurassic Quest now operates three touring versions of its classic indoor event, welcoming fans in 41 states and four provinces in the U.S. and Canada over the past year.
