Do you like dinosaurs? If you do and you live in Rochester, Minnesota, you’re in luck. Jurassic Quest is coming to the Mayo Civic Center on July 8, 9 and 10, 2022. Be prepared to be amazed and delighted!
Walk among 100+ life sized animatronic dinosaurs. Seeing them come to life is a thrilling experience for children and adults. Walk through the self guided immersive exhibits at your own pace.
Each dinosaur has an animatronic frame over which layers of foam have been placed. Motors inside the dinosaurs make them move. The dinosaurs can swing their tails, turn their heads and some of them can walk.
Created painstakingly in collaboration with leading paleontologists, these dinosaurs come in all sizes, from the chicken sized Microraptor to Tyrannosaurus Rex. See the 15 foot tall and 35 foot long Allosaurus. The carnotaurus has horns on its head and spikes all over its body.
