Jurassic Quests Coming To Nampa, Idaho
The dinosaurs part of Jurassic Quest will be at the Ford Idaho Center from December 9th through December 11th.

You not only will get to see the dinosaurs and explore, but there are other activities like digging for fossils, rides, and inflatable attractions. You have opportunities to meet and greet some baby dinosaurs. There are bounce houses and bungee pulls. There is an interactive challenge where you must solve clues to earn some rewards. Crafts and coloring stations are also going to be there. It really is a full interactive experience.

Triceratops and T-Rex are some of the ones I recognize by name. A Megalodon will make an appearance as well as an Apatosaurus, Spinosaurus, and even raptors. There are a lot of other dinosaurs that will be there that are both babies and massive. You can even train some raptors.
