When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth

Jurassic Quest

By Mayo Lua de Frenchie
Kids love dinosaurs. This is a fact … because science. This event caters to that chid-like obsession. Head to the Albuquerque Convention Center for Jurassic Quest! It promises to deliver a far less scary version of the dinosaurs seen on film. Find a host of activities and spectacles to make the kids drool. With exhibit tours, science stations, dino crafts, face painting, a dino bounce, bungee pull, dino rides, fossil digs, food vendors and more than 80 lifelike dinos to see and hear, the entire family can get on board with this one and find some entertainment. Come on down on Friday, Aug. 17 from 3 to 8pm, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18 and 19 from 9am to 8pm. There are 2 options for kids ages 2 to 12—general admission for $20 or VIP for $34. VIP tickets mean not having to pay the $5 up charge for select activities. Seniors are in for $18, adults pay $20 and kids 2 and under are free! Bring an extra $6 to $8 for parking and step back in time for the day.
