The kiddos will rawr over this egg-citing news! My stepson Josh was obsessed with anything Jurassic Park related. Whether it was the ferocious tyrannosaurus rex, the four-legged stegosaurus, or the strong triceratops with three horns, he knew the names of all. After a visit to Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History, he decided he wanted to be a paleontologist when he got older. That trip was the highlight of his young life at the time. If you have a child that loves dinosaurs, you won't have to travel to Chicago to have some fun. A ferocious cast of characters is coming to Owensboro for a live-action show!


There’s no better place to make pter-iffic memories playing with adorable baby Dinos, excavating fossils, or even training a raptor while surrounded by behemoths like sky-scraping Spinosaurus and, the King himself, Tyrannosaurus rex!

Jurassic Quest is the world’s largest, most popular Dino event with unique and exciting experiences for the whole family. Observe our herd of life-size animatronic dinosaurs including Apatosaurus, Spinosaurus, and T-Rex!


A Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, Giraffatitan, Microraptor, and Segnosaurus will roar into the Owensboro Convention Center in September. Jurassic Quest is an interactive show the entire family will enjoy.

The kids can even meet dinosaurs up close. It's a unique chance to come face-to-face with the most extraordinary dinosaurs as never before!

IMPORTANT: Bring socks for the kids! Socks are required for inflatables.
