I know we’ve got a lot of dinosaur fans around here, so I am sure you will be super-excited to know that the Dinosauria Experience, a “prehistoric journey millions of years in the making,” will be at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly Saturday and Sunday, May 24-25! The show is from 10 am to 8 pm both days. This traveling exhibit is a fun family attraction with moving, roaring dinosaurs, lots of fun activities for the kids, and even fire-breathing dragons and enchanted fairies! The main attraction, of course, is the large museum-based, animatronic moving, breathing, and roaring dinosaurs including a life-size T-Rex. But attendees also can enjoy dinosaur and dragon rides, a huge playground of inflatable amusements (including an inflatable giant T-Rex slide!), dino tatoos, Dinosauria arts and crafts, and pictures with costumed mascots and magical fairies.
The event includes an “Enchanted Fairy Garden” where kids can feel like they are inside a fairy tale storybook and see animatronic pixies and real-life fairy princesses who are ready to make your children’s wishes come true. There also is a “Walk-A-Dinosaur Interactive Exhibit” where kids (with the help of a “trainer”) can hold the lease of a walking baby T-Rex and lead him around the show floor. All of these activities are included in the ticket price, which is $20 per person age 2 and up (buy online to get the early-bird ticket price of $15!). Kids under age 2 are free and active military and first-responders (Police, Fire, EMS) also get one free ticket at the door with a current valid ID!
For an additional fee, you also can enjoy gem and fossil panning, face painting, and adventure photos and videos (pay onsite). There also is a gift shop in the show. (Please note: Dinosauria Experience is NOT the same company or the same show as another dinosaur show in our area previously this year.)
Below are pictures of some of the fun you can expect, courtesy of Dinsosauria Experience.
