Rated 4.3 out of 5Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Star Rating

3 Star Rating I purchased a Groupon for the Jurassic Quest “exhibit” at Nassau Coliseum this weekend. The price was reasonable. Parking was easy (just keep in mind there is a parking fee). The security staff was very friendly. Upon entering there is a large area with mechanical dinosaurs. Each “quest spot” had televisions with information about the dinosaurs which was pretty cool. There is an area with more activities which include: bouncy houses, dig stations, Dino arts and crafts, a mini Dino theater. The food options were limited. There was an option of buying an unlimited wrist band which I recommend if you’re child wants to go on or participate in multiple attractions. I feel that this place is tailored more for the 2-8(at most) age group.

5 Star Rating We went Friday to see the Hot Weels Monster Trucks Live Glow Party. It was fantastic .We bought tickets and paid xtra 10.00 to see the cars and trucks up close at the arena, 2hrs prior to the show. It was awesome. Nice time for the whole family. Great entertainment, exciting and really nice colorful glow show. Food was just regular, like any other Coliseum, overprice as always . It was pack!!! We had no problems at all, just some fun time . Give it a try.

5 Star Rating First time here in a long time! We got through security very quickly. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We were assisted to our seats with a smile and we were absolutely thrilled with the acoustics and the spectacular performance by Sir Elton John. Looking forward to going back again. Only negative was that we had to pay $40 for parking.
