Guests travel back in time 150 million years for LSC After Dark: Wine-O-Saurs

LSC After Dark

On July 19, 2018, guests packed the building and traveled back in time 150 million years for LSC After Dark: Wine-O-Saurs!

This party was all about two things: wine and dinosaurs! All night, guests enjoyed refreshing drinks at our specialty Sangria Bar, with three different flavors: strawberry jalapeno, rosé, and grapefruit. They also received free wine tastings, courtesy of Super Buy-Rite.

After enjoying their drinks, guests headed out back and enjoyed our popular summer exhibition, Dino Dig. They had an amazing time digging through 35 tons of sand and uncovering massive dinosaur fossils, many of which were replicas of those discovered in Montana by Jack Horner, the famed paleontologist who inspired Jurassic Park.

There were tons of dinosaur activities throughout the building, including “Pin the Tail on the Dinosaur” where guests pinned feathers on velociraptors and learned about recent research showing that dinosaurs were covered in feathers. Guests also sifted through fossils in our “Fossil Finders” activity and got to keep what they found.

We even had dinosaurs roaming the building! Guests had a blast meeting our dinosaur friends and taking selfies with them.

Midnight Market joined us again this month, offering delicious $5 food plates from local vendors. Since the weather was so gorgeous, guests enjoyed their food and drinks out on our lawn against the beautiful city skyline.

This month, two great shows played in the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium and LSC Giant Dome Theater: Summer of Mars LIVE!, a planetarium show about the Red Planet’s close proximity to Earth this summer, and the Dino-Mite Laser Show, featuring music from Beyonce, Pink, Imagine Dragons, and more.

Of course, all the exhibitions were open for guests to enjoy! Guests had a blast roaming through classic exhibitions such as Touch Tunnel, Infinity Climber, and Wonder Why. But they also loved crawling, balancing, and jumping their way through our seasonal adventure Wildlife Challenge, and learning about the science of all things gross in our new premium exhibition, Grossology.
