Pack the family up in the car and head over to the Florida State Fairgrounds to explore Jurassic Quest, located at 4800 N. U.S. HWY 301 in Tampa. 

Make sure to bring an extra pair of underpants, because this is the largest and most realistic dinosaur event in North America, and it continues to evolve. 

Jurassic Quest invites guests to go back in time 60 million years to discover more than 80 walking and breathing animatronic dinosaurs. 

Some activities include walking dinosaur rides, fossil digs, a dino petting zoo for toddlers and dino scooters. 

Ticket prices vary, and are available at jurassicquest.com

Just a heads up parking is $8. 

The event runs 3-8 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.
