Richland Co. Fairgrounds to host Jurassic Quest


MANSFIELD – Perfectly timed for the June 12 release of the highly anticipated “Jurassic World” movie, Mansfield will welcome visitors with its own Jurassic experience July 17-19.

More than 50 life-size, ultra-realistic animatronic dinosaurs will arrive at Richland County Fairgrounds for a weekend of paleo-fun. Jurassic Quest invites families to experience prehistoric educational entertainment, including multiple science stations, guided dinosaur tours, fossil digs and more.

“We are excited to bring another highly anticipated visitor experience to Mansfield visitors,” said Lee Tasseff, president of the Mansfield & Richland County Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Jurassic Quest’s highly educational and thrilling adventure is ideal for travelers of all ages, and it’s the perfect addition to the many experiences the area offers visitors.”

Jurassic Quest includes dino craft stations filled with all the supplies needed to color and create a paper dinosaur. Travelers can also climb aboard an animatronic dinosaur for a ride.
