Frequently Asked Questions - Indoor Events

Can we buy tickets at the door?

Due to expected sellouts and the capacity per timeslot advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.  On site sales are subject to availability and not guaranteed.

What does my child get with the Kids Standard Ticket?

They get to view all of the dinosaurs in the exhibit, participate in arts and crafts, interact with a baby dinosaur and view the walking dinosaur show. Other rides and activities require activity tickets that are available at the "Upgrades & Tickets" booth inside the event for $6 each. If the child plans to do more than one activity, you can upgrade to the Kids Unlimited Rides ticket at the "Upgrades & Tickets" booth inside the event.

How much are activity tickets?

Activity tickets are $6 each and are necessary if you have purchased a Kids Standard Ticket or for children under 2 years old who want to experience paid activities. Activity tickets are required for rides, inflatables, and more. Kids Unlimited Rides Ticketholders do not need activity tickets and can take as many turns as they want at activities and rides, which is the best value for children ages 2-12. Souvenir Photos and Animal Art Tattoos are the only activities not included in the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket.

Can my child under 2 do the activities?

General admission for children under 2 years old is free. That means you do not need to pay anything for your child to see the dino exhibit, the interactive baby dinosaur show, the walking dinosaur show, and more. Individual activities require activity tickets from our "Tickets for Activities" booth inside the event. Each activity ticket is $6 and counts for one ride or activity. For the child's safety, the two largest stationary dinosaur rides and the largest dino bounce house have a minimum height requirement of 36", however there are several other stationary dino rides, as well as walking dino rides and bounce houses that smaller children can do, as well as the “Triceratots” soft play area for children under age 3. Other paid activities suitable for young children include Animal Art Tattoos, fossil dig and green screen photography.

What does my child get with the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket?

In addition to everything included in the Kids Standard Ticket, the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket adds unlimited turns on activities and rides, including the custom dinosaur-themed inflatable attractions, stationery and walking dinosaur rides, fossil digs, and more, without having to pay as you go (note the largest attractions have a 36”height requirement). Animal Art Tattoo and Souvenir Photos are the only activities not included in the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket.

Are there any added expenses?

A Kids Standard Ticket comes with the option to purchase rides, inflatables entry, and other activities one-by-one or upgrade to the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket on-site. We recommend the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket, which allows kids to ride, bounce, dig, learn, and play as much as they want! You can upgrade your standard ticket to a " Kids Unlimited" one starting at $15. The only activities not included in the Kids Unlimited Rides Ticket are Animal Art Tattoos and Souvenir Photos, which can be purchased at the "Upgrades and Tickets" booth inside the event. We also offer multiple retail locations to purchase souvenirs.
