Jurassic Quest Drive Thru
August 27 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating indefinitely
More than 70 photorealistic dinosaurs are ready to return from extinction to delight families and dino fans, as Jurassic Quest Drive Thru, the nation’s largest and most realistic dinosaur experience, migrates to the Phoenix area August 27 to Sept. 5.
After welcoming millions of guests to sold-out events across the country, Jurassic Quest Drive Thru will transform the parking lot of the Gila River Arena in Glendale into a fun-filled drive-thru experience complete with life-like dinosaurs, baby dino and trainer meet and greets, photo opportunities, a choose-your-own- audio-adventure tour, and memories of epic proportions.
The Jurassic Quest herd of animatronic dinos – from the largest predators to playful baby dinos – are displayed in realistic scenes that allow guests to experience them roaring and moving as they drive through the tour. Jurassic Quest worked in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated in every detail, from coloration to teeth size, to textured skin, fur or feathers, drawing on the latest research about how we understand dinosaurs and ancient giants of the sea looked and moved. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicles, they’ll still need to avoid the swinging tail of the 50-foot Spinosaurus and the gigantic grinning Megalodon!
Tickets for Jurassic Quest Drive Thru start at $49 per vehicle (eight people or less). An audio tour comes standard with every purchase (choose from two; special accommodations can be made for the hearing impaired) as well as a safari-style digital souvenir photo of your vehicle and family transported back in time via a Jurassic setting. Special souvenir packages and other add-ons can be purchased at check out.
Designed to be thrilling but not scary for our littlest adventurers, big or small, young or old, Jurassic Quest Drive Thru guests have a dino-mite time!
More than 2.5 million people have attended the Jurassic Quest Drive Thru since the national tour launched in June with stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Detroit, Atlanta, Orlando, Houston and more.
