REDDING, Calif - Turtle bay is taking a trip back in time, back to the dinosaur era.

Children from all over the north state have been studying dinosaurs and were able to experience the jurassic action first hand on Wednesday.

"We’re very happy to be able to have this in our region. You can beat hands on learning this is a wonder exhibit and opportunity," said Indian Springs teacher Blake Uhles. 

The exhibit focuses on a series of simulations including the comparison of the human heart to a dinosaur heart, a show about the evolution of dinosaurs, and digging for fossils.

“I haven’t seen the fossils yet so as they’re undigging them i get to see them also and to help them find it on the map," said Turtle Bay employee Fallon Ruddock. 

But for some students visiting the exhibit for the first time, it was an experience they didn’t want to end.

“I don’t want to go home,” said 4-year-old Deacon.

"Do you want to live here forever with the dinosaurs?" asked Action News Now reporter Elizabeth Zelidon. 

Deacon nodded.
