This weekend, get out and Discover the Dinosaurs at The North Austin Event Center with interactive exhibits, activities, rides and other fun!



Discover the Dinosaurs consists of 8 – 10 scenes in an exhibit area. These interactive exhibits use sight, sound and motion to enthrall and educate your family! You’ll be taken back in time in this immersive experience where you can touch and feel the dinosaurs.

Pick up a map/scavenger hunt sheet at the exhibit entrance and answer questions about each scene to win prizes!

Other attractions:

  • Dino Dig -> Guests can brush away sand to reveal dinosaur fossils beneath.
  • Dino Theaters -> Guests can watch both educational and entertaining movies on our dinosaur sized screen.
  • Dino Den -> Dinosaurs designed just for our youngest guests to sit on, hug, and touch. Over 10 whimsical and colorful dinosaurs that are just their size!
  • Dinosaur Rides -> Ride on the back of a T-Rex or Triceratops! Hop in the saddle on top of one of these animatronic dinosaurs. They’re not too scary, but a once in a lifetime opportunity and an excellent place to take a photo.
  • Inflatables ->  Jump, slide, play, and have a blast in one of our several dinosaur themed inflatables. Note height restrictions and limits are in place ensuring that all our guests have a fun and safe experience.

Guests can also explore the mine with a headlamp-equipped hardhat to find hidden rocks, gems, and fossils located in the dark mineshaft.
