The venue will host “Jurassic Quest” January 15-17 and 21-23 in Philadelphia, allowing families to travel billions of years back to the days when dinosaurs roamed the planet.

Dubbed the nation’s greatest dinosaur experience, “Jurassic Quest” will feature over 100 animatronic dinosaurs, ranging from large predators to babies. Guests will be able to walk among lifelike terrestrial dinosaurs from the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic periods.
The event’s “Ancient Oceans” exhibit will bring families face-to-face with a moving 50-foot-long megalodon, which was the largest summit predator of all time.
“Jurassic Quest” will also feature dinosaur-themed rides, live shows featuring walking dinosaurs, interactive science and art activities, a play area for young children, bouncy houses and inflatable attractions, a fossil digging, animal art tattoos, games and photo opportunities.
Scheduled entry tickets are now available for purchase online. Tickets will also be available for purchase on site.
Children 2 and under can enter for free. Tickets for adults and children ages 3 and up cost $ 22. People aged 65 and over can participate for $ 19.
General Admission tickets include access to all dinosaur and marine exhibits, arts and crafts activities, and live interactive shows. Some rides and activities require separate tickets which will be available on site.
Families can also purchase a Kids Unlimited Rides ticket for $ 36, which includes non-stop access to dinosaur rides, inflatables, and other activities.
Customers are strongly encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance to ensure entry on the desired date and time. The event put in place capacity limits and social distancing guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The last entrance time for the event is one hour before closing, but guests are encouraged to give themselves at least two or three hours to fully enjoy the experience.
All tickets will be fully refunded in the event of cancellation or postponement of a show.
“Jurassic Quest” will open at 9 am on the six days the event takes place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The event will end at 8 p.m. on the first two days of each weekend and at 6 p.m. on the third and final day.
All guests, regardless of their immunization status, will be required to wear face masks, in accordance with Philadelphia’s current COVID-19 guidelines for indoor spaces.
“Jurassic Quest” was held as a dinosaur drive-thru safari at Wells Fargo Center in September 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
