As the largest exhibition of life-size, realistic dinosaurs that move, roar, and even interact with the audience, Jurassic Quest offers a journey back in time.

The exhibition, which is the largest of its kind in North America, stops in Vancouver this May. Guests will be transported into the Cretaceous period, the Jurassic Period and the Triassic Period as they walk through the exhibit. As such, they’ll get to experience what it was like to be among the living, breathing dinosaurs.

There will be over 80 dinosaurs to view at the attraction, which include full-size animatronic dinosaurs.  The event will also feature the massive “skull of Stan” – the best and most complete T-Rex skull ever found.

Trainers also bring out several species of playful baby dinosaurs for kids to interact with; they bring out different ones throughout the day for roughly 30 minutes at a time.

Children will also enjoy the Dinosaur Petting Zoo, Dino Science Stations, and the fossil area. Also, there are a plethora of fun rides such as the inflatable mazes, huge slides, and the multitrack Dino Bungee Pull.
