Blockbuster ‘Jurassic World’ Exhibit at Katy Mills Is Fun for All Ages

Blockbuster ‘Jurassic World’ Exhibit at Katy Mills Is Fun for All Ages

WHILE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES have sort of taken over event calendars these past few years, many have been much more about providing Instagram-friendly content rather than in-the-moment fun.


Jurassic World: The Exhibition is a 20,000-square-foot show erected in a tent in the parking lot of Katy Mills mall; it has previously popped up in Madrid, Paris, Seoul, Sydney and beyond. From start to finish, the hour-long walk-through production is engaging and appeals to multiple generations of patrons — regardless of whether they want to post it on social media.

“Pods” of guests can enter the tent every half-hour. The experience kicks off with a photo op, and then a short video that is played as visitors board a ferry, sail across the ocean, and arrive at the iconic Jurassic World gate.

Inside, guests come face-to-face with life-size animated dinosaurs, and are escorted from room to room by cute, young attendants with a decent knowledge of the species. Special features include sensory tables, iPads that allow guests to “see” inside dinosaur eggs, and meet-and-greets with baby dinos!
