The largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibit in North America is bringing more than 100 photorealistic dinosaurs to Salt Lake City, just in time for Halloween.

Jurassic Quest opens at the Salt Palace Convention Center Friday, Oct. 29, and runs through Sunday, Oct. 31. Guests are invited to come in costume — and keep an eye out for staff and baby dinos who are dressed up as well — and each day there will be costume contests with cash prizes.

In addition to the life-like dinosaurs on display, Jurassic Quest offers its most popular experiences for the whole family, including dinosaur-themed rides, live dinosaur shows, interactive science and art activities, the Triceratots soft play area, animal art tattoos, bounce houses and inflatable attractions, and photo opportunities. 

Jurassic Quest is open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with peak hour pricing on weekends after 3 p.m.

Entry during offpeak hours is $19 for kids and adults, $18 for seniors, or $33 for kids tickets with unlimited rides.

Peak hour prices are $22 for kids and adults, $20 for seniors, or $36 for kids tickets with unlimited rides.

Admission is free for children under 2.
