Coming to the Alameda County Fairgrounds this weekend, February 10 and 11, this indoor event — T-REX PLANET — invites families to get up close to over 40 life-like dinosaurs, ranging from animatronic models to realistic scenes from the Jurassic period.
Inflatables, fossil digs, face-painting, and more, will fill the building. We have not attended this event ourselves, however Yelp reviews are less than favorable. The scope of the event does not sound big enough to entertain adults, so it is best saved for young kids who truly love dinosaurs, especially because general admission is $20/adult; $25/child (1-12), and parking at the fairground is usually costly.
Admission includes access to the exhibit plus unlimited access to the Fossil Dig, bounce castles area, basketball and darts games, Dinosaur Band, and Dino Theatre.
Additional attractions such as a virtual reality ride will cost extra.
All tickets also includes a free mobile game: Dino Soar!, which can be downloaded from the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Tickets are valid for all day access; in and outs are welcome.
* (There is additional cost for face painting.)
Babies under the age of 1 get in free.
Alameda County Fairground is in Pleasanton: 4501 Pleasanton Ave, Pleasanton, CA 94566
