Though new dinosaur research suggests the ancient beings may have been warm-blooded, evidence of bullied brontosauruses and stood-up stegosauruses suggests otherwise. Safely meet these fearsome beasts with today’s Groupon to the Dinos in the Dark Prehistoric Adventure event from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on May 20 at Powell Gardens in Kingsville. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get two adult tickets (a $40 value).
  • For $30, you get a family four pack, admitting two adults and two children (a $60 value).

Jurassic Garden, Powell Gardens’ new dino-centric exhibit, gives temporal tourists an eon-spanning glimpse at the earth’s prehistoric tenants. Rendered with care and expertise by paleontological illustrator Guy Darrough, these awe-inspiring reproductions of thunderous lizards run the gamut from the 32-foot T rex to the bambiraptor, a tragically orphaned feathered fiend. Fossil-loving families and Cretaceous-inclined couples can take a self-guided torchlight tour through the exhibit. Though this antediluvian evening is fun for all ages, families with young children will create lasting memories and receive an informative lesson in pronunciation while taking in nesting baby quetzalcoatluses, who belie their eventual 36- to 39-foot wingspan. Savor a meteorically roasted dino s’more around the fire pit as you keep your earlobes peeled for ambient Mesozoic melodies.
