Get ready to be transported into the prehistoric ages this summer.

Coined “the largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibit” in North America, Jurassic Quest is set to visit Westerner Park in Red Deer from June 3-5.

According to a press release, it will be the first time the exhibit has been in Canada since 2019.

It features life-like dinosaurs, dinosaur rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, bounce houses, and inflatable attractions. In addition to new dinos in the herd, new activities for 2022 include the “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers.

The three-day exhibit will also have “The Quest”, an educational and entertaining journey through Jurassic which is included with admission.

“The Quest is an interactive adventure where guests will meet dinos and prehistoric sea creatures, take a unique Dino Snap, search for fossils, watch a live Raptor Training Experience and more. Follow the ten clues to the “Quest Spot” signs and collect a prize at the end,” the group says in a press release.

Also featured will be a “deep dive” and into the “Ancient Oceans” exhibit, as well as a moving, life-size 15-metre long megalodon. There are also several other animatronic dinosaurs, from predators to babies.

“(They) are displayed in realistic scenes with some that move and roar, allowing guests to experience them as they were when they roamed the earth millions of years ago,” the release read.

Tickets are $27.50 for kids and adults. Kids under 2 are free.

The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
