If your kids love all things dino, it’s time to get excited for Jurassic Quest, the nation’s biggest and most realistic dinosaur exhibition coming to Edison next week. Jurassic Quest will have a limited run at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center Dec. 29 – Jan. 1 and you don’t want to miss it!

Jurassic Quest is known for its life-like dinos and for having some of the largest rideable dinos in North America. The event also includes live dinosaur shows and interactive science and art activities such as a fossil dig. Kids can see real fossils like T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn and even a life-size dino skull.

For the little ones, there’s “Triceratots,” a soft play area with bounce houses, inflatable attractions, photo ops and more. New this year is a map where guests can embark on “The Quest,” an interactive scavenger hunt.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Jurassic Quest is the walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to learn about the creatures that ruled the land. Families will marvel at the 50-foot-long moving megalodon. And don’t miss the chance to meet the babies, hatched at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops!

These animatronic dinos are sure to inspire and educate. Jurassic Quest works with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur is painstakingly replicated in every detail and draws on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and their existence.
