Jurassic Quest Dinosaur Experience is Heading to Oklahoma!
We are excited to spread the word on Jurassic Quest, coming soon to central Oklahoma! If you have a Dino fan in the family, scroll below to find out more about this big event!
It’s so exciting to share new events coming to central Oklahoma, after so many event cancellations over the past year. If you have had the Jurassic Quest Dinosaur Experience on your list, good news! It’s back from October 22-24, 2021.
This is just in time for fall break for many schools, and it’s scheduled over the weekend so parents or grandparents can join in the fun. If you are located in central Oklahoma and are trying to think of fun ideas that don’t involve travel- check this one out!!
What Is Jurassic Quest?
Jurassic Quest is a full dinosaur experience, complete with over 80 life-size animatronic dinosaurs! Even older kids will be wowed by this one. The Dinos have been created with attention to every detail, including size. Paleontologists have helped collaborate to make the dinosaurs’ appearance look as realistic as possible. It’s a walk through experience featuring different dinosaur time periods with lots of detail.
What’s Included with a Jurassic Quest Ticket?
The event is indoors, and due to COVID precautions, tickets are currently time entry. You can order your tickets online or purchase them at the event (availability may vary).
Aside from the Dinos, the event offers:
- Bounce houses for kids (and some designated for smaller children only)
- Dinosaur Rides
- Fossil Digs
- Meet a baby dino
- Up close walking dinosaurs to meet
- An ancient oceans exhibit.
With a standard ticket, you and your family can view the exhibits, join in arts and crafts, interact with the baby Dino, and meet the “walking” dinosaurs around the event. A standard ticket would be ideal for older children who probably won’t want to participate in the rides or are too tall. If you’re heading out to Jurassic Quest with a group such as a homeschool field trip, we would recommend standard tickets.
Rides and More:
I was really interested in finding out more about the rides. The exhibits are very cool to walk around and view, but for many kids the rides are a must! One important thing to note is the bounce houses are part of the paid activities. You can get an unlimited ride ticket, or if you want to add one bounce house or ride, you can pay per individual activity for $6 each.
If you have a child ages 2-12 that is really into dinosaurs and the rides, bounce houses and activities are a must-do, your best value is the full activity ticket. There is no admission cost for 2 and under. They can join in the activities for under age 2 at the individual activity rate ($6 each).
What to Bring and How Long to Spend at Jurassic Quest:
Be sure to bring socks for everyone wanting to jump on inflatables. Usually with any venue, small kids snacks and water bottles are permitted unless posted at the event. There is not a place to sit down and eat at the event (so you would want to plan to eat before or after). If you have a group of kids multiple ages, it will probably take 2-3 hours to get through everything, so we recommend to adjust your time entry accordingly.
Oder kids will enjoy listening to the narratives and read educational information, and then of course younger kids are there for the fun! So for everyone to get to do what they are interested in, plan at least a few hours for your trip! Souvenirs and concessions are available, but we usually skip these as a general rule.
What’s Offered and Pricing
I’ve been excited to check out Jurassic Quest for quite a while now. It definitely has the wow factor if your kids are interested in science, dinosaurs, and history. We would say the pricing is comparable to any other all-day activity such as an amusement park, water park, or trampoline park. Tickets start at $19 and go to $33-$36 for all rides included. There is also a Quest Pack extension available.
It’s a GREAT option if you’re not traveling out of town this year, and are looking for more of a staycation idea for the family, or something special to do around school fall break. With more families thinking outside the box for fun activities and ways to make memories without traveling, this is a perfect option! We hope you can check it out.
