The Discover the Dinosaurs show roars back into the Palm Springs Convention Center, April 18-19, featuring nearly 60 dinosaur interactive exhibits. The unique show features a walk through exhibit area for attendees to see and touch museum quality and animatronic dinosaurs. Each exhibit scene is designed with the sights, sounds, motions, and realistic backdrops and landscaping to represent a period of time that best reflects when the dinosaurs lived.

The Discover the Dinosaurs show creates an educational and interactive environment for guests to explore the wonderment and mystery of the pre-historic past. Beyond the exhibits, families can also discover activities including:

Dino Dig: A fun way to experience being a Jr. Paleontologist, guests can brush away sand to reveal dinosaur fossils beneath.

Dino Theater: Educational and entertaining movies on a dinosaur sized screen.

Dinosaur Rides: Ride on the back of a T-Rex or Triceratops! Hop in the saddle on top of one of these animatronic dinosaurs.
