A huge animatronic dinosaur event event returns to Mississauga and Hamilton.

Jurassic Quest features life-like dinosaurs in one of the largest and most realistic interactive dinosaur events in North America.

The event came to Mississauga for the first time last year.

And now it is back in Hamilton from Dec. 1 to 3, and Mississauga from Dec. 8 to 10. There are also dates in Ottawa (Nov. 17 to 19) and London (Nov. 24 to 26), according to a press release from Jurassic Quest.

The Jurassic Quest experience includes 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

The Jurassic Quest herd of animatronic dinos – from the largest predators to playful baby dinos – are displayed in realistic scenes with some that move and roar, allowing people to experience them as they were when they roamed the earth billions of years ago.

The event has baby dinos including Cammie the Camarasaurus, Tyson the T-Rex and Trixie the Triceratops.

There are also some of the largest rideable dinosaurs in North America and interactive science and art activities including a fossil dig and real fossils like T-Rex teeth, a triceratops horn and life-size dino skull.

Young kids can try out the “Triceratots” soft play area with bounce houses and inflatable attractions and photo opportunities.

New additions this year include a Raptor Run, a race where kids try to beat the times of our Utahraptors, Jojo and Diego and Rope-a-Raptor.

“Our dinosaurs almost never escape, but a little practice wrangling members of our herd will have you prepared,” the press release states.

Guests can join “The Quest,” a self-guided scavenger hunt style activity where budding paleontologists can become certified Jr. Dinosaur Trainers.

Jurassic Quest has also launched a new video tour that features star dino trainers: Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty.

All expanded activities are included with general admission.

Children’s admission is $27.50, and adult tickets are $45.
