Discover the Dinosaurs roars into Tampa!

Tampa, Florida-- Tyrannosaurus Rex to come to Tampa?! That's right, and he won't be alone as the Florida State Fairgrounds hosts T-Rex, and up to 60 other animatronic and museum quality dino replicas at the upcoming "Discover the Dinosaurs" event. 

The event takes place April 12, 13 and 14 in the Fairgrounds Expo Hall. 

"Exhibit only admission" will allow Tampa locals to get up close and personal with our prehistoric pals during these dino-mite activities:

  • Dinosaur Exhibit
  • Dino Dig
  • Dino Den
  • Dino Theater
  • Dino Coloring Area
  • Scavenger Hunt

"Exhibit only admission" tickets for children between two and 12-years-old will be available for $12, but a few extra bones for "Exhibit plus admission" will get guests all that, and:

  • Unlimited Dinosaur Rides
  • Mini Golf 
  • Inflatables
  • Gem and Fossil Mining will be available for an additional cost

"Exhibit plus admission" tickets for children between two and twelve will cost $20.00, while rates for adults (13+), seniors (65+) and children under one seem to be standard: 

  • Adults: $17
  • Seniors: $15
  • Children under one: FREE

Avoid the stampede! Organizers say morning and late afternoon are the best times to arrive to avoid crowds. The Florida State fairgrounds is located at 4800 Highway 301 North, Tampa, FL 33610.
