Don't miss the Dino and Dragon Stroll coming to Cincinnati this weekend

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to encounter a monstrous dinosaur or dragon? Now is your chance to see life-like creatures up close right here in Cincinnati.

Dino and Dragon Stroll – a unique, interactive dinosaur and dragon national touring experience, produced by CV Events, is coming to Cincinnati. The special event will take place at Duke Energy Convention Center on Oct. 1-2.

Here's what you need to know about the action-packed, family-friendly event:

Interact with life-like, massive dinosaurs and dragons

This year’s event is bigger and better than ever, featuring dinosaurs, rides, and even dragons. Visitors can get up close and personal for life-like encounters with massive dinosaurs and dragons, some measuring more than 28 feet tall and 60 feet wide. The creatures are produced with advanced animatronic and sound technology, truly bringing them to life, including moving heads, necks, tails, wings, eyes, and mouths, breathing movements, and roars.

In addition to visits with favorites like the T-Rex, Velociraptor and Stegosaurus, children can participate in story time and hands-on crafts and activities at the Dinosaur and Dragon craft creations station. Additional activity tickets also will be available for purchase at the stroll for themed rides, including bounce house inflatables, dinosaur scooters, walking dinosaur rides and more.

Land good deals for the whole family

Tickets are $19.99 each for adults and children and must be purchased online in advance. Children under two, Active Military and Veterans (with ID/papers) are free. A sensory-friendly Dino and Dragon Stroll session will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, for those with stimulation sensitivities.

Give back while you make memories

In addition, The Dino and Dragon Stroll is partnering with an area food bank as part of its national, “Stomp Out Hunger” initiative to help those in the community facing food insecurity. Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable items to the event and place them in collection bins at the front entrance.
