NORTH AMERICA’S BIGGEST DINOSAUR EVENT TO VISIT TORONTO AREA
North America’s most popular interactive dinosaur experience is BACK, BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! The Jurassic Quest herd of photorealistic dinosaurs is ready to delight families during its one-weekend-only engagement at the International Centre in Mississauga for one weekend only, December 8-10.
New for 2023! Jurassic Quest is on its biggest Canadian tour yet and is bringing more hands-on activities, education and fun for the whole family including our expanded herd of life-like moving and roaring dinosaurs, themed rides and attractions, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities including a giant fossil dig, real fossils, a “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers, photo opportunities, a newly launched video tour featuring our star dinosaur trainers, and more!
Loved by millions, only Jurassic Quest can bring families memories this BIG! Walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to learn about the creatures that ruled the Earth! In addition to life-like dinosaurs, Jurassic Quest’s classic experiences for the whole family include some of the largest rideable dinosaurs in North America, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities including a fossil dig and real fossils like T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn and life-size dino skull, a “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers, bounce houses and inflatable attractions, photo opportunities, and more.
New for Canadian Tour this year
Raptor Run: On your marks… get set… ROAR! Are you faster than a raptor? Get ready to get your blood pumping with a track meet straight out of the Cretaceous, as our guests race against the clock, trying to beat the times of our Utahraptors, Jojo and Diego, in the “Raptor Run” activity! A Utahraptor can reach speeds of 20 MPH (32 KmPH) in short bursts! Can you catch up before they catch you?
Rope-a-Raptor: Being a Raptor Wrangler can be quite the challenge! Do you have what it takes to lasso some stray saurians? Take a swing and toss a line to try to rope one of several dinosaurs to get them back in their pens! Not sure how to throw? One of our experienced “BrontoBusters” will be there to show you the ropes, literally! Our dinosaurs almost never escape, but having practiced ropers on hand helps to put everyone’s mind at ease!
Other additions for 2023!
Jurassic Quest is bringing more activities back in 2023, with more hands-on activities, added educational experiences and the very popular face painting returning to the event. This evolution, Jurassic Quest includes an expanded Excavation Station and more Jurassic-themed rides and inflatables. Even our animatronic herd has expanded to include fan favorites, the Utahraptor and Giganotosaurus. In addition to “The Quest,” a self-guided scavenger hunt style activity where budding paleontologists can become Jr. Dinosaur Trainers, Jurassic Quest has launched a new video tour that’s already getting “roaring good” reviews from families and features our star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty (available onsite and on your phone via QR code)! All expanded activities are included with general admission.
The Jurassic Quest herd of animatronic dinos – from the largest predators to playful baby dinos – are displayed in realistic scenes with some that move and roar, allowing guests to experience them as they were when they roamed the earth billions of years ago. Jurassic Quest works in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur is painstakingly replicated in every detail, from coloration to teeth size, to textured skin, fur or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved. Families also have the unique opportunity to meet the babies, hatched only at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops.
Community Quest with Kids Up Front
Jurassic Quest, through its Community Quest initiative, is excited to once again partner with Kids Up Front, donating nearly 1,000 tickets to Kids Up Front chapters in visiting cities. Jurassic Quest donated over 1,000 tickets earlier this year during a Western Canada tour. Kids Up Front creates joy, promotes inclusion and strengthens communities by connecting children and their families to enriching experiences, and believes that all kids should have access to enriching experiences like arts, culture, and sporting events.
