The main exhibit of the interactive show includes more than 80 ultra-realistic, life-size animatronic dinosaurs, according to Spectra, the company that manages the Alerus Center.

The show runs from 3 to 8 p.m. March 1 and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 2 and 3.

Tickets, ranging from $22 to $36 plus fees, are on sale at the Alerus Center box office, through Ticketmaster.com and www.JurassicQuest.com, or by calling (800) 745-3000.

Jurassic Quest is a dinosaur adventure for the whole family, Spectra officials said.

This show offers visitors the chance to interact with these huge creatures, learn about them and ride a few of them, they said.

The exhibit stages the dinosaurs in realistic scenes, and provides fun activities for kids of all ages, including fossil digs where budding paleontologists can uncover dinosaur bones.

The event also includes a "dino bounce" area with several towering dinosaur-theme inflatable mazes, face painting and crafts.
