Tuesday morning, officials with the El Paso County Coliseum announced that Jurassic Tour would be making a stop this weekend in the Sun City.
According to promoters, Jurassic Tour is the “largest most realistic Dinosaur event ever seen in El Paso.”
“There will be a wide variety of fun and educational activities designed to engage all members of the entire family,” Jurassic Tour officials added.
“There’s a fossil dig where young paleontologists can dig up ancient bones, experience 9D Virtual Reality Rides designed to stimulate your child’s imagination, a Jurassic Themed Bounce area with dinosaur inflatable bounce houses and much more.”
The show takes audience members on a prehistoric journey from the Jurassic all the way through the Ice Age periods, where they’ll discover the dinosaurs and mammals that ruled the earth for more than 150 million years ago.
The main exhibit features over 50 life size ultrarealistic dinosaurs in their natural habitat. Other exhibits include hands on interaction with the dinosaurs, a baby Dinosaur ride, and even opportunities to ride a 12 foot animatronic T Rex and Triceratops.
Tracey, a friendly young T-Rex greets guests periodically throughout the event and can be found walking and playing with the kids.
