Discover the Dinosaurs in York

Discover the Dinosaurs is coming to the York Expo Center (AKA, The York Fairgrounds.  The link to Discover the Dinosaurs on the York Expo website is incorrect due to a spelling error.) in February.  From Friday February 1, 2013- Sunday February 3, 2013 families with dinosaur fans can learn all about the prehistoric creatures, from realistic scenes to a dino dig to dinosaur-themed inflatables, dino theater and much more.  Some attractions at the event are not included in the ticket price.  This event is on the pricy side, but hardcore dinosaur fans will have a lot to experience!

Tickets for this event can be purchased at the door.  Ticket prices are:
$16 for 12 years and older
$11 for kids ages 2-11
$11 for seniors ages 65+
Discount tickets for Friday, February 1 can be purchased online
The hours for Discover the Dinosaurs:
Friday, 2/1 from 12-9pm
Saturday 2/2 from 10am-8pm
Sunday 2/3 from 10am-7pm

An Update:
I've started hearing some complaints about Discover the Dinosaurs at the Expo center. I noticed on the website that they stated that some of the activities are not included in the admission price but what I'm hearing is that nothing is included in the admission price except for the exhibit (which is reportedly about a 5 minute walk-though) and that everything else requires tickets. The tickets are $2 each or 12 for $20 and each activity "costs" about 3 tickets. You can also get a wristband for $20 that would include all of the activities except mining for gems. If you've visited let us know your experience please!!  Also, you can join in on the conversation about Discover the Dinosaurs going on on the York, Pa Families Facebook page.
