Los Angeles, CA, (The Hollywood Times) 10/15/2019–Dinosaurs existed millions of years ago, and you would need a time machine to travel back in time to witness, marvel and possibly interact with these magnificently created creatures.
Non-bird dinosaurs lived in a time known as the Mesozoic Era. Scientists separate the era into three periods: the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous.
Now, armed with this information, it’s time to take a visit to Jurassic Quest
A Prehistoric Adventure
Many of us have seen at least one, if not all, of the Jurassic movies and our fascination with these prehistoric creatures, does not end there. The good news is Jurassic Quest has made it possible for dinosaur enthusiasts to experience an afternoon that will appeal to the senses.
Jurassic Quest invaded the West Hall portion of the Los Angeles Convention Center this past weekend allowing families to walk through each of the Mesozoic periods.
A Prehistoric Adventure Awaits You
Entering the doors leading to the exhibit, attendees are met with the sights and sounds of Jurassic Quest’s presentation of over 100 life-sized dinosaur replicas first hand. Adding to the prehistoric experience and to help set the mood, guests are first met with dinosaurs roaring and a dimly lit environment surrounding well-lit dinosaurs.
To whet your appetite further, here are a few of the dinosaurs on exhibit: Brachyceratops, Albertosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus Stenops, Herrerasaurus, Ceolphysis, and Triceratops.
As you walk around the area, you will come across several activities available for you to choose from, mainly for the little ones, such as dinosaur rides, dinosaur-themed bounce houses, science stations, an excavation station, where little ones are able to dig up fossils, and a dino cinema.
Digging for fossils was a popular area when we attended Jurassic Quest on Sunday, October 13th.
The “live-action” baby dinosaur show is an interactive event and caused those of all ages to marvel at how lifelike the little creatures seemed. This was a very popular area as well.
Even though most of the activities are geared toward a younger age group, there is something for everyone at the Jurassic Quest exhibition.
Don’t forget to stop by the Jurassic Quest Gift Shop before you leave and take home a bit of the past, the prehistoric past that is.
The exhibition makes for a great family day activity. If you missed the exhibit at the LA Convention Center, you have another opportunity to experience a prehistoric adventure here in Southern California with your family.
