“Our Dinosaur Adventure event is great family fun for the entire family,” said Steve Rajtar, marketing manager for Pinnacle Production Group. “Thirty-plus animatronic dinosaurs come to life and families can experience what it is like to live in prehistoric age and how to pronounce dinosaur names and what they ate.”

Activities include searching for fossils and gemstones, riding on top of dinosaurs, racing Jurassic Jeeps, playing in bounce houses and doing an array of arts and crafts.

Pinnacle Production Group says the average adventure will last between two and three hours.

Tickets are limited and guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased online for $25 with optional add-on packages. Organizers say additional activity tickets may be purchased at the event.
