The largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibit in North America is BACK, BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! Their herd of photorealistic dinosaurs is ready to delight Okanagan families when Jurassic Quest® arrives in Penticton, spanning across the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC) Complex, for one weekend only on Friday, May 27 to Sunday, May 29, 2022.

Jurassic Quest will visit Canada for the first time since 2019 with its most beloved and unique experiences for the whole family including life-like dinosaurs, dinosaur rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, bounce houses, inflatable attractions and more. In addition to new dinos in the herd, new activities for 2022 include the “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers.

New for 2022, discover “The Quest”, their educational and entertaining journey through the Jurassic. The Quest is an interactive adventure where guests will meet dinos and prehistoric sea creatures, take a unique Dino Snap, search for fossils, watch a live Raptor Training Experience and more. Follow the ten clues to the “Quest Spot” signs and collect a prize at the end. The Quest is included with general admission.

Families can walk through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods to see the dinos that ruled on land, and “deep dive” into the “Ancient Oceans” exhibit, making its Canadian debut, to come face to face with the largest apex predator that ever existed – a moving, life-size, 15-metre-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 millions 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 or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved.
