JURASSIC QUEST DRIVE-THRU EXPERIENCE COMING TO N.Y. & N.J.
October 2, 2020 EDT
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 11, 2020
Dinosaurs are ready and raring to return from extinction and invade New York and New Jersey in October. For two weeks, the Jurassic Quest Drive Thru will be migrating to MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, N.J.) and Point Lookout Lido Beach (Hempstead, Nassau County, N.Y.) from Oct. 2 – 11, after multiple sold out weekends in Boston, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Detroit, Atlanta and Cincinnati.
The nation’s best touring dinosaur exhibit will transform outdoor parking areas of MetLife Stadium and Point Lookout Lido Beach into an interactive drive-thru experience, featuring over 70 moving and life-like dinosaurs, as well as a 50 foot-long Megalodon at each location! The drive-thru experience has seen over 500,000 cars and 1,000,000 people in attendance since launching the national tour in mid-July. The drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicles.
The Jurassic Quest Drive Thru is the only place to encounter some of the largest dinosaurs to ever roam the earth, and some of the eeriest marine creatures to ever lurk the ocean’s depths. Guests will be among the first in the nation to go on a quest with an online audio tour that will lead them throughout the thrilling dinosaur safari. For $49 per vehicle (8 people or less), your dino crew can time-travel and enjoy about an hour-long ride back in time.
Jurassic Quest worked in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated in every detail. Guests will have the chance to drive through realistic scenes, without leaving their vehicles, depicting how we understand dinosaurs looked and moved!
In addition to the life-like dinosaur exhibits, there will be opportunities to visit one-of-a-kind baby dinosaurs and our team of dino trainers as well as a chance to capture the moment with a safari-style photo of your vehicle and family transported back in time via a Jurassic setting complete with a dinosaur backdrop. All attendees will leave with the same bragging rights, “We Survived Jurassic Quest 2020!” One photo per family is FREE and included in ticket purchase.
Jurassic Quest takes extra precautionary measures to provide a clean and safe event. Guests are to remain in vehicles and wear masks in the event they exit the vehicle in allowed areas. Social distancing rules will be requested of all guests and maintained by Jurassic Quest crew. We will be sanitizing equipment, dinosaurs and workstations more frequently and thoroughly throughout the entirety of the event. Our employees will be applying hand sanitizer and washing their hands regularly throughout each day, in addition to wearing masks. Guest safety and enjoyment is our top priority.
