New dinosaur exhibit stomps into the QCCA Expo Center

All-New Interactive Dinosaur and Dragon Exhibit Roars into Rock Island this weekend.

Discover the Dinosaurs is in town at the QCCA Expo Center from March 10 to 11.

The Time Trek will feature hands-on interactive activities and entertainment that dinosaur fans of every age can really sink their teeth into. The family friendly event will allow kids to experience larger-than-life creatures and activities like Design-a-Dino, Prehistoric Poop, or the Race Through Time Labyrinth will keep everyone entertained. Families can compete in the Cretaceous Challenge Zone, and even see a Dino skeleton come to life!

On Good Morning Quad Cities, entertainment Guru, Phil from Discover the Dinosaurs showed us just one of the many activities families can enjoy: egg racing.

Other attractions include a Dinosaur Time Trek Roar-O-Meter, Dino Eggs, a craft area, a Dino Dig, and the Time Trek Theater with various entertainment programs throughout the day, such as featured paleontologist performers and scientists, baby dinosaurs, and more! Guests can become paleontologists for the day using a Dino Bone Scanner device that helps classify bones while educating attendees about the dinosaurs each bone came from.

This Discover the Dinosaurs: Time Trek event also includes a variety of hands-on activities and animatronic dragons, each inspired by a different culture’s folklore: Latin American, Asian, and European. Time Trekkers can check out the Dragon Breath Replicator, make music on dragon scales, and more!
