Dinosaurs invade San Antonio in epic indoor event with realistic roars and more
If we've learned anything from the Jurassic Park movies, it's that we should stay far, far away from dinosaurs. Luckily, the extinct beasts of Jurassic Quest, the nation's largest touring dinosaur exhibit, are very much not alive, but they're still pretty monumental.
The display, which is migrating to Freeman Coliseum September 24-October 3, features more than 100 realistic life-size dinosaurs, and even a 50-foot-long megalodon, and unlike in other cities Jurassic Quest visits, the San Antonio event will take place in person indoors coliseum halls B and C.
The herd of animatronic dinos, which span allosaurus to velociraptor, are displayed in realistic scenes. Jurassic Quest worked with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated.
Human visitors can also interact with walking dinosaurs and baby dinos, ride enormous dinosaurs, and experience a giant fossil dig. There will also be face painting, a bounce house, games, and more.
Tickets range between $18-$36, and there will be timed entry slots each day.
The event is also offering Quest Packs as an add-on to the Jurassic Quest experience: The Explorer Pack ($15) comes with three dinosaur surprises. The Tracker Pack ($25) comes with three dino surprises plus crafts and activities to do at home. The Trainer Pack ($50) includes six dinosaur surprises plus crafts and activities to take and do at home.
Millions of people have wound their way through the event since it launched in July 2020, with recent stops in Houston (where the experience is headquartered) and Corpus Christi and a future touchdown in Austin.
