Dinosaurs Invade South Florida

This weekend, would-be paleontologists of all persuasions are gathering at the South Florida Fairgrounds, as Jurassic Quest takes over the Expo Center. Jurassic Quest is Americas largest and most realistic dinosaur event. Guests walk through the Cretaceous period, the Jurassic Period and The Triassic period and experience for themselves what it was like to be among living, breathing dinosaurs.

From the very small, to the gigantic, skyscraping dinosaurs that can only be seen at Jurassic Quest events. Jurassic Quest has over 80 true to life size dinosaurs in each of it’s events. In collaboration with leading paleontologists, each one was painstakingly replicated in every detail. Whether their prehistoric counterpart had skin that was scaly, had feathers or fur, Jurassic Quest has spared no expense in bringing this realism to life. In Jurassic Quests Dionosaur World, the dinosaurs roar and move, some even walk around. At a Jurassic Quest event, there’s a sometimes-blurry line between our visitors watching the dinosaurs… and the dinosaurs watching them.

Visit https://jurassicquest.com/westpalmbeach for tickets, but hurry, as the event goes extinct on Sunday, August 12 at 8 p.m.

If you can’t make it to the fairgrounds, or if you’re a true dino-junkie, you’re in luck, as dinosaurs are coming back to the South Florida Science Center (4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach)! The blockbuster exhibit Dinosaur Invasion will roar to life through advanced animatronics, fossils and authentic casts. Visitors will experience the reign of these amazing creatures through more than a dozen dinosaurs, which will be life-size recreations of the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptors and everything in between. This time, the apex predators will be “Bigger, Badder, More Teeth!” The T-Rex will be twice as big as last time he visited! Guests will get an up-close view of the amazing creatures and the most recent discoveries in the world of paleontology. All ages are invited to check out this immersive indoor and outdoor blockbuster exhibit. Find out what these giants ate, how they behaved and get a feel for just how big they were.

From Saturday, October 13th, 2018 through Sunday, April 21st, 2019, this traveling exhibit is in line with the Science Center’s mission to “open every mind to Science.” Visitors will learn about the history and timeline of the dinosaurs’ reign as well as the geology and geography associated with this period and climatology.

Admission to Dinosaur Invasion is included in general admission to the Science Center, which is $16.95 for adults, $14.95 for seniors, $12.95 for children (3-12), FREE for children under 3, and FREE for members.
