At first I thought it was too good to be true. Something that looks like the Jurassic Park movies EXISTS?
Then I did my research and found out that Jurassic Quest is a REAL THING that ACTUALLY IS COMING TO TAMPA BAY! The Florida State Fairgrounds, to be exact, October 14-16. Which means you can get up close and personal with animatronic dinosaurs. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
Here’s what their Facebook Page has to say about the exhibit:
“Jurassic Quest is coming to Tampa, FL for the FIRST TIME EVER with a BRAND NEW show like you’ve never seen before. We are proud to present to you Jurassic Quest: OUT OF EXTINCTION for the first time ever at Florida State Fairgrounds!
