Frequently Asked Questions | Dinosauria Experience
Q: Where are you located?
A: Dinosaurs Come Alive! is a touring dinosaur exhibition; we visit a different U.S. city every weekend. For a complete schedule, visit our upcoming events page.
Q: Is your show appropriate for younger children?
A: Absolutely. Our shows include a full range of activities for children age 2 and up, including a bounce area, arts & crafts, the enchanted fairy garden, mascot photos, and more. Some of our actual moving dinosaur exhibits can be a little intense, and will appeal more to gradeschoolers and pre-teens, but you can choose what parts of the show to see. Overall, Dinosaurs Come Alive! has something for every member of your family.
Q: Are there any restrictions on activities?
A: Yes, there are a few. For the safety of all our young attendees, use of our inflatable bounce amusements is restricted to children age 2 & up, and under 36" in height. Children must be supervised by a parent or guardian while bouncing. For safety and sanitation purposes, socks are required on the inflatables; no shoes or bare feet permitted. For full details on restrictions, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.
Q: I have daughters. Do you have any activities or attractions that appeal to girls?
A: Yes, Dinosaurs Come Alive! has plenty of activities for boys AND girls. In addition to our moving, roaring dinosaur exhibits, we have an enchanted fairy garden for children to explore. Your daughter can meet a real fairy princess, and experience dragons and other fantasy characters straight from the story books.
Q: Can I touch the dinosaurs?
A: Most of our stationary exhibits are out of reach, and cannot be touched. However, we do have an attraction called Walk-A-Dinosaur, where you can walk with and pet a moving dinosaur, and take pictures and video. We also have dinosaur rides for kids.
Q: I took some photo and home video at your show. How can I share them with you?
A: Please Like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter: @LivingDinosaurs. Share your pics and video on our wall or tweet your pics to us. Of course, we do monitor user posts, and are obligated to remove any content we find to be objectionable in nature. So please make sure your photos and videos are family-friendly before you upload them. But otherwise, please share your family memories with our audience.
Q: How much are tickets?
A: At the time of this publication, general admission to our shows is $20 per person.
Q: Do you offer any discounts on tickets?
A: Children under age 2 are admitted free of charge. We periodically offer discount ticket options for large groups and for military personnel. These offers are subject to change, so please refer to the individual event page for your city and the day you wish to attend.
Q: How do I buy tickets?
A: You may purchase your tickets directly from us at DinosauriaExperience.com, or purchase from the box office at the show venue in your city. Please note, some venues contract with third-party ticket sellers. These sellers sometimes charge a processing fee in addition to the ticket price. Because we cannot control the fees charged by a third party, we recommend you purchase your tickets directly from us in order to get the best possible price.
Q: What is included in the price of admission?
A: Show admission includes access to the dinosaur exhibits, dinosaur rides, the fairy garden, the playground & bounce areas, Walk-A-Dinosaur, photos with our mascots & characters, dinosaur tattoos, arts & crafts activities, and more.
Q: What incidental expenses might I incur?
A: Depending upon the city/venue, you may need to pay an additional fee to park; some venues offer free parking, others do not. Also, the dining & concession areas are usually managed by a third party vendor contracted by the venue. On each event page, we provide a link to the website of the host venue; please refer to this link for information regarding incidental expenses.
Q: Can I leave and re-enter the show?
A: Yes, each paid attendee receives a wristband that grants all-day access to the show. If you wish to leave for any reason (lunch, emergency, etc.), you may show your wristband and re-enter the show the SAME DAY during operating hours. Please note, your wristband applies to your show admission only; the host venue governs policies and fees with regard to parking, etc., so please check with the venue before you take your vehicle off premises.
Q: What additional activities do you have?
A: We have a number of premium activities that are available for an additional fee, including a novelty background photo & video attraction, panning for fossils and gems, face painting, and a souvenir & gift shop.
