Amazing Time at Jurassic Quest!
We had an amazing time at Jurassic Quest today. We drove all the way from Tri-Cities to take my five-year-old son for his first time and we were there for hours. So many amazing memories were made today.

See you next time!
"See you next time"... That's what my 3 year old great grand son said although he was scared of the dinosaurs at first. He loves to watch them on TV and talks all the time about them. He is the one that prompted me to buy the tickets because he kept seeing the advertisement on TV. Really surprising was my grandson – 12 years old – he always loved dinosaurs and has books about them but he thought he wouldn’t have fun (when I purchased the tickets, he was 12, but his birthday was Sunday!). He thought it wouldn’t be fun but he really did enjoy it. It was a good birthday present for him, too, although it was meant for my 3-year old great grandson! Hopefully, next time he won’t be afraid! Blessings to you Jurassic Quest!

Everyone was so awesome and caring.
This was so much fun! I need to give a shout out to everyone that works this event. Everyone was so awesome and caring for each kid that came up to their area. They made my kids laugh and made sure they were safe at the same time. Can't wait for the next time JQ comes around 🦕

Do Not Miss This!
Fabulous! Every single employee had a smile on their face and was so friendly, helpful and happy. I cannot say enough how wonderful the staff was. They can come work for me any day! The dinosaurs were great! Definitely worth the ticket price. If your little one loves dinosaurs, DO NOT MISS THIS! Lines were not too long. Everything was top notch and life like and fun. We loved it!!! Hope you come back to Springfield, Illinois

Good Job JQ!
I was a little skeptical about this event because of some of the reviews, but I must admit that it was a great experience! My 4 year old son absolutely loved it! The dinosaur exhibits were awesome and very well made. They really did a good job in making them look as believable as real as possible and some of these dinosaurs were huge! There were activities for the kids, such as fossil digging, crafts, face painting, etc. There were a few "rides" where the kids could ride a dinosaur and drive a jeep. Yes, the event was crowded and the lines were long, but as long as you get there early you should have enough time to do everything. We got there about 30 mins after the event started and it was perfect...barely any lines. By the time we left at 1pm, that was a different story! We especially enjoyed the Walking Dino show...my son was CRACKING UP the whole time. All in all, we had a wonderful time and the event was very well organized and the staff was very nice. I do think the prices are high though, especially for the adults, but the way my son looked at those dinosaurs thinking they were real made it all worth it! I also agree with some that it's more geared towards younger kids, maybe 8 and under. Good job JQ!

Absolutely LOVED the event
We absolutely loved this event. We went while they were in Huntsville. It was laid back and relaxing. They layout was amazing! They has everything grouped together, which made it easier to navigate. The staff was nothing but smiles and they were so patient with children. I loved the hair nets for the rides with helmets. Best idea ever! I give this 5 out of 5 stars. The only complaint I would have is I wish parent prices were a little bit lower. Kids process I felt were priced correctly! We even got the VIP for our kiddo. Thanks for coming to HSV. I look forward to going again!!

Brought the kiddos to this amazing place!! The kids had a blast. As soon as we got arrived, Niko greeted us with a friendly smile and gave us a useful suggestion of how to navigate our way around. Definitely will come back when they come back!!! 5+ stars for Niko and all the staff!!

Could have spent all day!
We had a great time at Jurassic Quest with our two boys. Everyone enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs and all the fun activities and crafts. The tickets are reasonably priced and the event well organized. It was a fun, clean, indoor activity to do in the heat of the summer. We could have spent all day there and will be back again!

20 Stars from me!!
My daughter and I went Friday in Raleigh at the convention center. HAD A GREAT TIME. Food was great. Ticket pricing and parking was very easy and convenient . Event was very well organized. Not too crowded, indoors was a big plus. Fossil digging take home is awesome. 20 stars from me!!

Attention to Detail
I attended Jurassic Quest when it came to Charlotte, NC. I enjoyed the animatronics, and I thought the displays for the dinosaurs were great, too. The attention to detail was impressive. Every dinosaur also had a card to make sure I knew what I was looking at. By far, the best part for me was the tour. The expert called out the details in the models and used it to educate and discuss the animals. If you're attending, make sure you go on the tour! The souvenirs I picked up have brought me a lot of happiness since then, too. They were good quality, although it was hard to tell at the time. I hope I get a chance to go again one day.

We had a ton of fun. The event was EXTREMELY crowded, but you can't fault them for that! I have a 3 year old and she had a blast. The staff was very helpful!
My 6 year old and 20 month old had fun. The dinosaurs were impressive. It took both of my kids a few minutes to be comfortable getting close to the dinosaurs. My 6 year old enjoyed the rides and inflatables. We had fun using the dino head and eggs to take fun family photos. The fossil making was fun. When we went it was Sunday and it was not very busy. The lines were short and so were the waits. The workers were nice.

Always wanted to do this
We took our grand-daughter to see the dinosaurs. There were more there than I expected, with most of them moving. I appreciated the fact that they have added a feather down to many of the animatronic dinosaurs.

"LIVE" Baby Dinos!
My kids loves the Jurassic quest! We had been to several different dinosaur exhibits but this one was the best. My kids loved the Dino rides and arts but best of all were the "LIVE" baby Dinos and walking ones! We definitely will be going back!

A++ Customer Service
First: If you want your kids to do the rides, get there 10 minutes before they open and do the rides first, then the exhibit. We got there early and our son was able to do everything multiple times but by 10am the place was packed with massive lines. I was a bit reluctant to go after the reviews on here but I was blown away by this! I brought my son who is 9 and although he was a bit old for the rides, he really enjoyed the exhibit and the fossil dig. I would suggest before spending the money at looking at their FAQ on their website first. This would be better for a younger crowd, say ages 4-7. Regardless, we still had fun and were pleased. A++ on their customer service as well. The guys working the check-in booth for online registration were really funny and entertaining! The puppeteers were engaging and so great with the children. The ride operators were all very nice as well.
Great for the Autism Community!
My son has Autism and is obsessed with all things dinosaur . This is the first public place/event I’ve been able to bring him to, that he hasn’t had a meltdown from being overwhelmed at. He couldn’t stop smiling and had a blast!
The lighting was perfect. He tended to be more calm in the exhibit since it was not so bright (very sensitive to bright light). The dinosaurs were also the perfect volume!!. He was able to walk around without his noise cancellation headphones. And having a food court with options was amazing , as he is a picky eater. He also LOVES digging and finding stuff in dirt and the fossil area was awesome and a perfect sensory activity for him !
I tell you this because this was seriously the best time I’ve had with my son, to not have to worry or be embarrassed that he may have a meltdown in front of everyone.
In my opinion this exhibit is very kid friendly for the autism community!!
If these pictures ever get used for marketing, event promotion etc, I hope it reminds this business that you guys do more than make awesome exhibits and experiences for people. You created a place where my son could be like any other kid, and for that I will always be thankful!
If I see you guys ever back in my area of Texas I will absolutely come again.

Get The VIP Wristband
We went to this event in Minnesota. It was amazing! All of the workers were so nice and patient with the kids. They were cheerful and helpful! My 5 year old loved it!! Definitely worth it to get the VIP wristband. She had a blast! We would attend if it came back to our city!

They're Real! They're Real!
My kids had a great time, my eldest was jumping up and down yelling 'they're real, they're real' when he saw the animatronics. The activities were cool and they had a great time in general. Staff did a good job, a few of them were really into it, especially the ones running the walking and baby dinosaurs. One guy, Stewart, who was running the dinosaur jeopardy did a really great job and was more educator than just attendant. Good time all around.

Fun for the kids. Good info to read for the adults too. The dinosaurs are as real as you're gonna get...ya know...they're extinct.
Staff was really friendly.
As for the wait time...well there WERE a lot of kids ( target age group is 2 - 12 ) ...so...you're gonna wait a little. Plenty to occupy and come back later. Teach your kids patience. Less waiting after 5 p.m.
My 4 y/o loved it!!
My 4 year old totally loved Jurassic Quest and seeing all the dinosaurs. My only is would be with the venue. It was too small for the amount of people that attended.
Had a blast. I brought my 5 yr old to the Salinas, Ca stop. He & I enjoyed everything!! I can't wait to go again.
Good Family Fun!
I took my grand daughter to the show in San Francisco. We really enjoyed the play area, it was fun as was the fossil dig. The rides were age appropriate and enjoyable for her. Great time was had by all, good family fun! Will go again.
Amazing experience! Danielle at the face painting area was great with kids. Definitely recommend going here.
Will go again!
Jurassic Quest came twice to Shasta County in the same year. I took my kids (4 and 5 years) both times and we were there almost 8 hours both times. It was worth the price of admission, the dinosaurs were huge and loud and took a little time to warm up to for some children, but they also have the greatest bounce houses I've ever seen, plus art activities, we went back and forth over and over. The staff we met were friendly and helpful and must be well trained, they did a great job. We will go again if they return.
Had a Blast!
Decided to take the kids to Jurassic Quest to let them unwind and for me and the wife to enjoy "family time." I was stunned as to how much detail was put into the animatronics and displays! None of the Dinosaurs looked cheesy, and they all moved well. What was even better was the 2nd exhibit where the kids could do Dinosaur bone digging, inflatable jumpers, and ACTUALLY ride Dino's! Our kids had a blast and so did my wife and I. We'll definitely do it again next time Jurassic Quest is in town!

Lots of Fun!
Had a surprisingly great time with the kids at Jurassic Quest! It was great that it was all indoors due to the nasty weather. The 1st building had realistic looking dinosaurs (May be a little scary for very young children), and the 2nd building had an area where the kids could "bounce around" with jump/slide houses, ride dinosaurs, and dig up bones! Overall, we had a lot of fun!

Love, Love, LOVED IT!!
I loved the show. My son at 3 Loves and knows dinosaurs and he loved going through the exhibit part more than once. Each time we read the cards. There was many activities we never even made it to. We were there 9-1 that is a long time. He got his face painted road all dinos more than once, read every card, met the baby dinos played in bounce houses and had lunch. Every employee was AMAZING. I am a server I see bad and good service. But I have never seen so many great, kid friendly enthusiastic workers. THANK YOU. DONT BELIEVE NEGATIVE REVIEWS. There is hours of fun, and honestly these dinosaurs and moving ones have to cost money. Pay a little and get a lot!
He didn't want to leave!
It was really fun.. My nephew is really into Dinosaurs and they looked almost real. They were huge, they moved, and made noise. It was nicely lit as well. The play area was fun. They had food and activities the children can participate in. Lots of fun that day

I took my 4 year old to the Charlotte event. We had an excellent experience! We spent a full 4 hours in the exhibit with adventures in every direction. We went on a Friday evening and the wait times were minimal for each activity. My son absolutely loved the "make your own fossil" and taking home the excavation project to extend the fun! Standing beside the dinosaurs was incredible to actually understand the magnitude of their size. The staff at each station from face painting to bounce houses were top notch. Loved the digital line for face painting. We got a text when it was our turn instead of physically waiting in line. We also especially loved the cartoon artist - John Pulley - on our way out. What a great unexpected bonus! His work is amazing - but also his joy of drawing is beautiful to witness. He never stopped smiling and dancing as he drew. The kids loved him...and his music too
Thanks for coming to NC Jurassic Quest!

This was an AWESOME experience!!!
We took our three-year-old and six-year-old to the Fayetteville, NC event this morning and they had such a blast that we went back this evening! The VIP wristband is definitely worth it. They rode all of the dinosaurs multiple times and we went to the exhibit with the giant dinosaurs five, yes FIVE separate times. They couldn't get enough. The bouncy houses and fossil digging pits were big hits too. We only caught the tail end of the walking dinosaur show but that was really neat. And they liked petting the baby dinos as well. I really feel like we got our money's worth. And the staff could not have been friendlier! We will definitely be back the next time they are in town.
