The Scope, Norfolk’s city arena, showcased a traveling exhibit called Jurassic Quest. The main hall display showed a variety of life size animatronic dinosaurs in various habitats and lifestyle scenarios accompanied by information boards. One scene showed a dinosaur attack, however I questioned the need for the “flowing blood” to heighten the point. They made a fountain of red water flow from the dinosaur bite. It was quite funny.
The most interactive and popular attractions for the kids were the robotic dinosaur rides and the moon bounce obstacle courses. You simply cannot have a children’s event without some sort of moon bounce.
By far the best exhibit was the baby Dinos. Yes in 2017 you can pet and interact with a baby dinosaur. Shocking! These cute hand puppets looked great, felt pretty real, and were even a little feisty. Kal found out the hard way.
Some of the sections like the rides and moon bounces were an additional cost to the ticket price but overall it was a good exhibit to spend your money on. Make sure you take water because the Scoop charged me $5 a bottle. Thirsty much?
