Life-Size Dinosaurs are Headed to Cedar Rapids This Month [WATCH]
If you know a kid that's totally obsessed with dinosaurs, we have the PERFECT event for them!
Hawkeye Downs Expo Hall in Cedar Rapids is getting set to host a whole bunch of life-size dinosaurs later this month with a big event called Dinosaur Adventure. What is Dinosaur Adventure, exactly? Well, according to the official website, it's a "one of a kind exhibit featuring realistic, life-sized dinosaurs that come alive with their life-like movement and roars." The event is geared towards kids between 2 and 12, and they'll get to check out a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, a Velociraptor, and more!
In addition to all the dinos, there are a bunch of other fun activities for kids at the event. They can become paleontologists with a fossil dig, create crafts and fossil castings, go on a mining adventure, dig around in "dino dung," play on dinosaur-themed inflatables, drive Jurassic Jeeps, and even ride around on dinosaurs!
Dinosaur Adventure is a touring event put on by Pinnacle Production Group. The website says that the average "adventure" lasts two to three hours. The Hawkeye Downs event will take place Saturday, January 29th from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, January 30th from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and cost $20 for ages 13 and up and $25 for kids ages 2 to 12 (children under 2 are free). There are also Adventure Pack and Ultimate Adventure Pack add-ons that include extra goodies. You can get more information and purchase your tickets HERE.
