The Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru experience has welcomed nearly 1.5 million people via sell-outs around the country. From adorable baby dinos to a fierce T-Rex, explorers embark on the adventure of a lifetime led by a thrilling-for-all-ages audio tour as they view 70 photorealistic dinosaurs that move and make sounds, all from the comfort of their own vehicles.

We had the opportunity to experience the Jurassic Quest drive thru dinosaur experience on opening day and truly enjoyed it. While there was a long line of cars, we enjoyed the tour through the land of the dinosaurs in about 45 minutes (start to finish).
