The exhibition is offering Knoxville guests the chance to experience the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods firsthand at the Knoxville Convention Center on Saturday, Dec. 3, and Sunday, Dec. 4.

The main dinosaur exhibit features more than 50 ultrarealistic, life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. Visitors can interact with these huge creatures, learn about them and even ride several dinosaurs. The exhibit features realistic scenes, adult and baby dinosaurs and many other activities for kids of all ages.

Young aspiring paleontologists can uncover long hidden dinosaur bones at T-Rex and Triceratops fossil digs. The “Dino Bounce” area features several towering dinosaur-themed inflatable mazes. The event also offers face painting, Dino crafts and more.
