Jurassic Quest is a great opportunity for homeschoolers

My 3 grandchildren like many others students in this area are part of the growing home school population in Virginia. One of the disadvantages of not being enrolled in Roanoke City schools is their not being able to take part in scheduled group excursions and field trips so our family members keep our eyes and ears open for opportunities to give them as much exposure as possible.

A new opportunity to explore the world of science will be available for everyone in the area for a one-weekend Jurassic Quest prehistoric dinosaur exhibition from March 31-April 1, There will be larger-than-life dinosaurs and fun for the entire family.

The world's largest Dino event comes to Roanoke

Jurassic Quest is the world’s largest, most popular Dino event with the unique and exciting experiences for the whole family. Observe our herd of life size animatronic dinosaurs including Apatosaurus, Spinosaurus, and an INCREDIBLE T-Rex!

WFXR says the Jurassic Quest dinosaur exhibit will be open to the public on Friday, March 31st from 12 p.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday, April 1st from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 2nd: 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. This will be a fun-filled weekend for adults and children alike and give local home-schooled students an opportunity to explore with their own private field trip. Whenever my grandchildren take in such an event they incorporate it into their studies and I enjoy listening to their reports or how they found more information on the subject by checking online.

General admission includes access to the dinosaur exhibit, interactive science crafts, and live shows. Unlimited access tickets include dinosaur rides, Jurassic Jeep rides, a fossil dig, excavation station, and dinosaur-themed inflatable attractions.

Ticket prices are not listed and the only way to get them is through the prompt when you decide to order. The Berglund Center number at this time continues to repeat the same menu options and does not get you through to talk to anyone to ask about prices.
