There are a number of tantalizing concepts that always seem to capture the imagination, with ‘dinosaur’ being a lot, up there for kids and ex-kids alike.

We love dinosaurs in all their scientific, real-world glory, and the true stories paleontologists tell about earthlings with teeth that roamed our territory eons ago.

But sometimes we love the softer, more imaginative side of these ancient animals, especially when realistic puppets representing young dinosaurs come to the fore.

Baby dinosaurs have become one of the most vibrant elements of “Jurassic Quest”, the on-the-road experience that offers young and old alike the chance to get up close to a colossal group of prehistoric beasts, fantastic creatures that have been realistically recreated with the assistance of modern technology.

It just so happens that the smaller dinosaurs, and their larger counterparts, will stomp on two more regional spots, the final two Southern California stops on the event’s winter tour.

You may recall that “Jurassic Quest” popped up as a drive-through to-do in 2020 and 2021, giving kids the chance to interact with dinosaurs from inside cars.

The event is now stomped inside and features “…realistic roaring and moving dinosaurs, dinosaur-themed rides and attractions, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities including a giant fossil dig, real fossils, a ‘Triceratots’ soft play area for our littlest explorers, photo opportunities and more.”

Oh yeah: and the adorable opportunity to get to know a fascinating set of baby dinosaurs, boasting their own heartbreaking handles: Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops are some of the bundles you may come across.

The Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods are in the spotlight at the event, as are a sizable handful of massive icons, such as a megalodon that measures 50 feet and, sipping, can even move.

The dinosaur-filled extravaganza has proven to be understandably popular with children who have memorized nearly every celebrity saur there is to memorize, as well as anyone who likes to see fascinating but vanishing creatures “live” in an educational setting.

General tickets are $22, but there are a few ticket levels to pass; grab your rawring here before wagging your tail for Pomona or Ventura.
