JURASSIC QUEST DRIVE THRU DINOSAUR EXPERIENCE IN KANSAS CITY – TICKETS ON SALE NOW

KANSAS CITY, MO. (April 1, 2021) – More than 70 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready to return from extinction to delight families and dino fans alike, as Jurassic Quest Drive Thru, the nation’s largest and most realistic dinosaur experience, migrates to the parking lots of Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., from May 14-30.

After welcoming millions of guests to sold-out events across the country, Jurassic Quest Drive Thru will transform the iconic venue’s parking lots  into a fun-filled drive-thru experience complete with baby dino and trainer meet and greets, photo opportunities, a choose-your-own-audio-adventure tour and memories of epic proportions.

Jurassic Quest’s herd of animatronic dinos – from the largest predators to playful baby dinos – are displayed in realistic scenes that allow guests to experience them roaring and moving as they drive through the tour. Jurassic Quest worked in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated in every detail, from coloration to teeth size(!) to textured skin, fur or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicles, they’ll still need to avoid the swinging tail of the 50-foot Spinosaurus and the gigantic grinning Megalodon!  

Tickets for Jurassic Quest are just $49 per vehicle (8 people or less) and available only at www.jurassicquest.com. An audio tour comes standard with every purchase (choose from two; special accommodations can be made for the hearing impaired) as well as a safari-style digital souvenir photo of your vehicle and family transported back in time via a Jurassic setting. Special souvenir packages and other add-ons can be purchased at check out.

Jurassic Quest Drive Thru guests now get to choose their own audio adventure! Jurassic Quest’s own Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Captain Caleb, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty provide a fun-filled soundtrack for the hour-long trip back in time to help visitors navigate the dino herd and learn little-known dino facts – packed with plenty of lighthearted humor to tickle funnybones of every age (“get ready to Tricera-STOP here…”)! Visitors can opt for the original audio tour in English and Spanish or a brand-new audio adventure led by Safari Sarah with the rest of the crew serving up A BIG surprise for everyone at the end!

In addition to the life-like dinosaur exhibits, there will be opportunities to visit with one-of-a-kind baby dinosaurs and the Jurassic Quest team of dino trainers. Though no two visits are ever the same, all attendees will leave with the same bragging rights, “We Survived Jurassic Quest 2021!”

More than 2 million people have attended the Jurassic Quest Drive Thru since the national tour launched in June with stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Detroit, Atlanta, Orlando, Cincinnati, Houston and more.

Designed to be thrilling but not scary for our littlest adventurers, big or small, young or old, Jurassic Quest Drive Thru guests have a dino-mite time!

Butler: Track News Butler High School

The high school track traveled to Clinton on Saturday for a wet and rainy Class 3 District 7 meet. Despite the weather, the Bears had a great day with a lot of athletes advancing!! Anyone that places in the Top 4 earns All-District honors and advances to Sectionals (they are listed below). Considering that we are the SMALLEST school in Class 3 this year, I would consider the meet a great success. Especially on the boys side where they may have placed 5th, but were only 2.5 points from getting 3rd. Full results are attached. The sectional meet will be this Saturday, May 22 in Odessa

PEOPLE CHOSEN FOR THE JOURNEY TO HARMONY   MISSION AND THE STARTING OF THEIR TRAVELS

 The  U.F.M.S. begin taking applications for families  to head to Missouri to build the  mission for the Osage. The families had to consist of mechanics, machinists, farmers, physicians, preachers and teachers. The women would teach music, sewing and cooking skills.

The people selected assembled in New York on March 3, 1821 and had farewell services on March 5th and 6th. The first lap of the trip, for the missionaries to their new far western home, was to board the steamer, Atlanta. Then they left by wagon train to Pittsburg, PA which took them 23 days. They were grateful when they got to Pittsburg because of the delays they had from sickness and failure of wagons and horses. At Pittsburg they loaded two keel boats with supplies they received on their way to Pittsburg. They were headed down the Ohio River, and up the Mississippi, Missouri and Osage rivers to their destination in the Osage Country.

The week of April 7th was spent fitting and loading the boats. They were fortunate to hire the same chief pilot who had taken the Union family to Arkansas Territory the year before. The steersman for the second boat agreed to go with them not for wages, but because of his own belief in their cause. They were paid 50 cents a day, only if they engaged for the whole journey. Each stop they made the people were very supportive of their mission and gave them money, food and supplies for their journey. 

Parts of this story were taken from the book “The First Protestant Osage Missions 1820-1837” by William W. Graves and the “Papinville History” book composed by Beverly Sullins and Phyllis Stewart. The next story will be on the journey down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers ending up in St Louis, Missouri.  We hope you are enjoying the stories and will join us for “Harmony Days” at the Papinville Museum on June 12th. To make reservations for the wagon ride to Harmony Mission call 417-395-2594 or 417-395- 4288. If there is no answer, please leave a message with your name and number and we will get back with you. Times for the wagon rides are 10:00, 1:00 and 3:00.
