Get ready for a dino-mite adventure as Jurassic Quest, North America’s premier interactive dinosaur experience, descends upon the International Centre in Mississauga from December 8th to 10th. This highly anticipated event promises to transport families back in time to the era of colossal dinosaurs.

With its much-anticipated return, Jurassic Quest brings new thrills to its Canadian tour. Visitors can immerse themselves in a captivating journey through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods, spanning an astonishing 165 million years of Earth’s history.

Jurassic Quest offers a range of exciting experiences, from enormous, rideable dinosaurs to dynamic live shows. Interactive science and art activities, including fossil digs and real dinosaur artifacts, await attendees. Younger explorers can enjoy the “Triceratots” soft play area, while bounce houses and inflatables provide extra fun.

This year, Jurassic Quest introduces two thrilling activities. “Raptor Run” challenges visitors to race against a Utahraptor, which can reach speeds

of up to 20 miles per hour. Can you outrun these agile predators?

“Rope-a-Raptor” offers a chance to lasso stray dinosaurs. Don’t worry if you lack roping skills; experienced “BrontoBusters” will guide you.

Jurassic Quest expands its offerings in 2023, with more hands-on activities, enhanced educational experiences, and the return of popular face painting. The Excavation Station has been expanded, and additional Jurassic-themed rides and inflatables have been introduced. The animatronic dinosaur lineup now includes fan favorites, the Utahraptor and Giganotosaurus.

Young paleontologists can enjoy “The Quest,” a self-guided scavenger hunt-style activity. Families can also enjoy a new video tour featuring the charismatic dino trainers, available both on-site and via QR code on your phone.

The heart of Jurassic Quest lies in its animatronic dinosaurs. From majestic predators to playful baby dinos, these creatures are showcased in
