Called Discover the Dinosaurs, the three-day traveling show features an array of museum-quality and animatronic dinosaurs that invite hands-on exploration. About a dozen dinosaurs in the exhibit come to life with sound and movement. These displays are anatomically proportioned to reflect paleontologists' documented findings. Some activities, such as a dino dig and scavenger hunt, are included in the ticket price. Others, such as triceratops and T-rex rides, inflatables, gem and fossil panning and mini golf, require separate tickets.
Average price for the additional attractions is $5 or less.
