Real Jurassic QuickSand was discovered in 1994 by Utah Geologist Jerry Bergosh while exploring near Arches National Park on his mountain bike. A deposit of very fine grained sand from the 180 million year old Entrada Formation had collected near the Colorado River. Sensing it was like the quick sand he had experienced as a kid at the beach, he had to test it by stepping into it. Sure enough, the geologist started to sink immediately, and quickly retreated before getting stuck.

Unlike the urban myth that quick sand 'sucks you in', the reality is your weight and movement (like struggling) makes you sink into it. When you try to free yourself by pulling your foot out, the suction sound re-enforces that sensation that you've been 'sucked-in'.

Real Jurassic QuickSand is hand-shoveled from sand grains that have weathered out of the Entrada Formation and been blown by the wind. The combination of wind and water can easily move sand tens of miles from the side of a river and to deep into the desert.
