San Diego, CA–The largest and most realistic Jurassic exhibit in North America returns indoors to the Del Mar Fairgrounds in January 2022.
More than 100 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready to delight families and kickstart the New Year when Jurassic Quest heads indoors at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Jan. 21-23.
Jurassic Quest is one of the first indoor family edutainment shows to re-launch since March 2020 due to the pandemic — its drive-thru iteration sold out two Del Mar Fairgrounds showings earlier this year — and will return with its most beloved and unique indoor experiences for the whole family including more than 100 life-like dinosaurs, themed rides and attractions, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, a “Triceratots” soft play area for little explorers, photo opportunities, and other adventures.
Walk through the Cretaceous, Jurassic, and Triassic periods to see the dinos 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, Captain Caleb, 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.
