Jurassic Quest is back at the Oil Palace in Tyler Saturday and Sunday, December 17 and 18, bringing close to 80 animatronic, life size dinosaurs that you can get up close and personal to. There are many other side attractions to enjoy with the family, as well.

You can interact with cute and cuddly baby dinosaurs of many types several times throughout the day.

  • 10 A.M. - 10:30 A.M.
  • 12 P.M. - 12:30 P.M.
  • 2 P.M. - 2:30 P.M.
  • 4 P.M. - 4:30 P.M.
  • 6 P.M. - 6:30 P.M.

Some, slightly older dinosaurs will walk amongst the crowd for you to pet and play or get a selfie with.

  • 10:30 A.M. - 11 A.M.
  • 12:30 P.M. - 1 P.M.
  • 2:30 P.M. - 3 P.M.

There are other side attractions for kids of all ages. Stop by the Dino Science Stations where your knowledge of dinosaurs will be tested and can make your own plaster fossil. The Dino Bounce let's your kids run and bounce through dinosaur themed inflatables.

You will also have the opportunity to ride a dinosaur.

Tickets and all the details are available at jurassicquest.com. But listen with Big D and Bubba each morning next week for your chance to win tickets.

Jurassic Quest made a stop earlier this year. I snapped a few of these to give you an idea of what to expect.
