Jurassic Quest comes to Richmond for the first time ever April 28-30, 2017!


Jurassic Quest brings you a Dinosaur Adventure for the whole family. The main dinosaur exhibit features ultra-realistic, life-size animatronic dinosaurs; Over 80 life-size dinosaurs in all. Visitors can interact with these huge creatures, learn about them and even ride a few. It features realistic scenes, enormous dinosaurs, cute baby dinosaurs and lots of fun activities for kids of all ages. There are huge T-Rex and Triceratops fossil digs where young paleontologists can uncover long hidden dinosaurs bones, the “Dino Bounce” area with several, towering, dinosaur theme inflatable mazes, face painting, Dino crafts and much more!


Recommended Days to visit:

The events tend to be less crowded on Fridays or late in the afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays (after 4 pm).


The difference between a children pass and the VIP pass:

With a VIP pass they get to view the dinosaur exhibit, participate in the arts and crafts and science tables and watch movies in the dino theater. Also, unlimited: playtime in the inflatables, dino rides, fossil digs, bungee pull, dino scooters, excavation brick (one per VIP pass) and more. With a general admission pass they get to view the dinosaur exhibit, participate in the arts and crafts and science tables and watch movies in the dino theater.

Free admission for child under 2 years:

General Admission for children under 2 is free. That means you do not need to pay anything for your child to see all the big dinosaurs, baby dinosaurs, walking dinosaurs and more. Activities inside are accessed with a separate ticket from our “ticket for activities” booth. There is a dedicated bounce attraction for children under two but most are for older kids.
