Know a dinosaur lover? Discover the Dinosaurs is headed to Raleigh
Posted February 14, 2013
Thought I'd point out this big event that's headed to the N.C. State Fairgrounds later this month.
Discover the Dinosaurs aims to "create a fun environment of learning and activity that explores the wonderment and mystery of our pre-historic past," according to the website.
The event includes an exhibit of 8 to 10 prehistoric scenes complete with special lighting, sounds effects, animatronics and fog. Visitors are encouraged to touch some of the non-moving dinosaurs in the exhibit.
Other attractions include a Dino Dig; Dino Theater; Dino Den, designed for younger kids; some dinosaur-themed rides; inflatables; gem and fossil panning; and more (including dinosaur-themed mini golf).
It's Feb. 22 to Feb. 24 at the fairgrounds in Raleigh. This isn't free. Tickets are $17 for adults; $12 for kids ages 2 to 11 and seniors 65 and up; and free for kids ages one and under. The rides, mini golf, inflatables, gem and fossil mining and face painting each cost another $6, according to the website.
Check the event's Facebook page for feedback from other parents, who have seen the show elsewhere.
