North America’s premier interactive dinosaur experience is BACK, larger and more spectacular than ever! Houston-area families are invited to immerse themselves in the nation's most extensive assembly of lifelike dinosaurs as Jurassic Quest® returns to the NRG Center for an exclusive weekend event from December 8-10.

A beloved experience for millions, only Jurassic Quest can create memories of this magnitude! Traverse 165 million years across the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods, gaining insights into the rulers of ancient Earth. Beyond the lifelike dinosaurs, Jurassic Quest offers classic family-friendly activities such as North America's largest rideable dinosaurs, captivating live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art sessions, including fossil digs and authentic artifacts like T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn, and a life-sized dino skull. There's also a “Triceratots” soft play area for the youngest explorers, bounce houses, inflatable attractions, photo opportunities, and much more.

New for 2023! Jurassic Quest introduces additional hands-on activities, educational experiences, and entertainment. This evolution includes an expanded Excavation Station, more Jurassic-themed rides and inflatables, and an enlarged animatronic herd featuring fan favorites like the Utahraptor and Giganotosaurus. Alongside the popular "Quest," a self-guided scavenger hunt, Jurassic Quest unveils a new video tour earning rave reviews from families. It stars our dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick, and Park Ranger Marty, accessible onsite and via a QR code on your phone. All expanded activities are included with general admission.

Jurassic Quest's animatronic dinosaur herd, ranging from massive predators to playful baby dinos, is showcased in realistic scenes with moving and roaring exhibits, offering a glimpse into their ancient world. Collaborating with leading paleontologists ensures meticulous replication of each dinosaur, incorporating the latest research on coloration, teeth size, and textured skin, fur, or feathers. Families also have a unique chance to meet the exclusive babies, hatched only at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex, and Trixie the Triceratops.
