Fans can once again walk among the dinosaurs as North America’s most popular, can’t-miss dinosaur adventure celebrates Houston area grand re-opening after a year as a roar-some drive thru experience.

The largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibit in North America is BACK, BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! More than 100 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready to delight families as Jurassic Quest® returns to its traditional indoor adventure format with hometown Texas engagements in August. The Houston-based company will mount its first indoor shows in more than a year at Ford Park in Beaumont August 7-8 and NRG Center in Houston August 13-15. More tour dates to be announced soon at

The return of the classic Jurassic Quest experience in Texas will mark the first indoor shows since March 2020 due to the pandemic. Jurassic Quest Drive Thru®, which began touring in June 2020 as a response to COVID-19 regulations and has since welcomed more than 2.5 million visitors, continues to operate in select cities this summer.

Jurassic Quest will open in Texas with its most beloved and unique experiences for the whole family including more than 100 life-like dinosaurs, dinosaur themed rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, the “Triceratots” kiddie area, face painting, bounce houses and inflatable attractions, photo opportunities, and more. Walk through the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic periods to see the dinos that ruled on land, and “deep dive” into the “Ancient Oceans” exhibit to come face to face with the largest apex predator that ever existed – a moving, life-size, 50-foot-long megalodon! Meet the babies, hatched only at Jurassic Quest: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops and, you may even catch one of our star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Captain Caleb, Prehistoric Nick or Park Ranger Marty!

Loved by millions, only Jurassic Quest can bring families memories this BIG! 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.
