Discover the Dinosaurs
Bring your children for a day of fun and learning when you transport back in time to Discover the Dinosaurs!
Taking place at the Hampton Roads Convention Center, this interactive exhibit allows your child to get up close and personal with their favorite dinosaurs and dragons.
Discover the Dinosaurs
When you walk in, you are greeted by various animatronic dinosaurs and fun facts about how they lived when they roamed the planet.
Your child can visit the Velosi-Crafters and build their own dinosaur, dig for fossils at Can You Dig It, and run through the Race Through Time Labyrinth.
There is also The Fossil Identification Unit and the Roar-O-Meter, where you can test your ability to roar like a dinosaur.
For those who are less squeamish, they can dig through Prehistoric Poop to decide if it belongs to a herbivore or carnivore.
For an additional $15, your child can get their face painted to look like their favorite prehistoric reptile and check out Fossil Find.
Fun for All Ages
Discover the Dinosaurs also offers shows on the Time Trek Stage featuring their scientists, Baby Dinosaurs and Allosaurus skeleton.
Smaller children will enjoy the Destination: Dino Nest for ages 3 and under and there’s the Mission: Challenge Zone course for bigger explorers.
And you can bring the experience home with you when you stop in the dinosaur shop for a souvenir!
And Dragons Too!
You can allow your fantasy to take flight when you check out the Dragon Experience.
There, you can build castles in the Destination: Castle Courtyard, play music on the Dragon Scales and test your breath for it’s flame power at the Dragon Breath Replicator.
My one year old loved playing with the block and building her own castle towers!
Our Must See
My almost three year old son and two year old niece are dinosaur obsessed and were overwhelmed by all the fun activities at the exhibit.
But by far, their favorite part were the animatronic dinosaurs and fossil dig. My son loved listening to the dinosaurs roar, naming his favorites and reading the fun facts on how dinosaurs lived many years ago.
And of course, what’s not to love about digging through sand for fossils? It’s a toddler’s dream come true!
But hurry, this exhibit will be extinct on January 21!
