There’s a prehistoric party happening April 23–24 at Osceola Heritage Park. This event of dinosaur-sized proportions is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Discover the Dinosaurs is a unique, hands-on exhibit, consisting of moving and replica dinosaurs that you can actually touch!
For the walk-through exhibit, guests will be immersed in the period of time that best reflects when the dinosaurs lived. You’ll be engaged with sight, sound, and motion with special lighting, sound effects, animatronics, and fog. The backdrops, rocks, flooring, and plant materials are designed to bring you back in time to a landscape where dinosaurs lived.
Don’t be frightened when you come upon dinosaurs that move (and even ROAR) as you walk through jungle-like scenes with dinosaurs in their natural environment.
Included with with paid admission are: Triceratopos and T-Rex Rides (They’re not too scary, but a once in a lifetime opportunity, and a great photo op!), Inflatables (socks required), mini golf, dino dig, dino theater, dino den (socks required, dino coloring, scavenger hunt and dino maze (subject to availability). Add on attractions include face painting and gem and fossil panning.
Tickets are $22 for adults (13 y/o and up); $26 for children (2–12); $19 for seniors (65+); Children under 2 are free. Click this link to buy tickets.

It’s no secret that my family is currently dino-obsessed (from the Jurassic-themed birthday party to the dinosaur eggs at Easter). Talking with other parents, I know we’re not alone. Join us at Discover the Dinosaurs for an event “millions of years” in the making!
