SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Experience dinosaurs like never before with Jurassic Quest at the New York State Fairgrounds this weekend, March 17-19 and walk among the dinosaurs!

Jurassic Quest is the nation’s biggest dinosaur adventure show bringing to life a herd of photorealistic dinosaurs developed with leading paleontologists to replicate the likenesses, movement and sound of specific dinosaurs.

Central New Yorkers can walk through 165 million years of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to learn about these creatures ruled on land and sea.

Kids can come face to face with the largest apex predator that ever existed – a moving, life-size, 50-foot-long megalodon!

Jurassic Quest at the fairgrounds will include live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities including a fossil dig, a “Triceratots” soft play area for our littlest explorers, photo opportunities and more.
