A weekend of dinosaur-filled fun with Jurassic Quest at the HAPO Center

PASCO, Wash. — You might see a dinosaur roaming Pasco this weekend as Jurassic Quest makes their way into town. There are skyscraping, life-size animatronic dinosaurs, ancient ocean dwellers on display, some of the largest rideable dinosaurs in the country and many more.

The Quest is an interactive adventure. Follow the clues around the HAPO Center, and you’ll get a prize at the end.

“It’s an interactive scavenger hunt, where you can go around the entire exhibit, our ancient oceans exhibit. You can take some pictures, ask a fossil expert a question and then partake in the activities,” explained dinosaur trainer Elisa Marilys.

There are interactive walking dino-shows, fossil digs, fossil science exhibits, inflatables, baby dinosaurs and some amazing dino-trainers, as well as a marine exhibit.

“We have a huge exhibit here featuring our ancient oceans exhibit with a 55 foot long Megalodon that you definitely want to check out,” said Marilys.

Jurassic Quest has toured North America since 2013, bringing amazing dinosaur experiences to millions of people and families.

They said it’s the largest, most popular and most realistic dinosaur exhibition in the country.
