Our dinosaurs are ready and raring to return from extinction. After sold out weekends in San Antonio, Dallas, OKC, and Detroit, we will now be migrating to Cincinnati, OH, August 21 – August 30, with our FIRST EVER JURASSIC DRIVE-THRU!
The nation’s best touring dinosaur exhibit has been transformed into an interactive drive-thru experience, featuring over 70 moving and life-like dinosaurs, as well as our 50 foot-long Megalodon! The drive-thru experience has seen over 100,000 cars and 400,000 people in attendance since launching the national tour in mid-July. Although the drive-thru experience means guests will stay safe inside their vehicle, you’ll still need to watch out for the swinging tail of our 80 foot-long Spinosaurus!
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, from the safety of your family vehicle. Cincinnati guests will be among the first in the nation to go on a quest with our online audio tour that will lead them throughout the thrilling dinosaur safari.
Currently touring as a Drive-Thru only. The largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibition in North America. Now with new animatronic water dwellers, Jurassic Quest is the only dinosaur event that has up to 100, true to life-sized dinosaur replicas from the very small, to the gigantic, to those found under the sea. Guests will witness their favorite dinosaurs move, roar and roam and have the chance to interact with baby dinosaurs and adolescent dinosaurs, including the T. Rex, Spinosaurus, Triceratops and many others. With the addition of Ancient Oceans, guests will also be able to “swim” with our 50 foot long, prehistoric Megalodon!
For $49 per vehicle (9 people or fewer), your dino crew can time-travel and enjoy about an hour-long ride back in time.
Happening at the spacious Coney Island Amusement Park, 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 own vehicles, depicting how we understand dinosaurs looked and moved!
In addition to the life-like dinosaur exhibits, there will be opportunities to visit with our one-of-a-kind baby dinosaurs and our team of dino trainers as well as the 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.
We will continue to take extra precautionary measures to provide a clean and safe event. Guests are to remain in vehicles and to wear masks in the event they exit the vehicle in allowed areas, including complimentary restrooms and the Dino Store.
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.
Those willing to take the challenge and join our Cincinnati Drive Thru Quest will need to buy tickets in advance online at www.jurassicquest.com. Tickets are $49 per vehicle. Guests must travel through the drive-thru in the comfort of their own vehicle – no rentals or golf carts will be provided and walkers are not allowed. To ensure participant safety, all guests must ride inside their vehicles (yes, pets inside vehicles are allowed), no riders in truck beds, however. Trailers are also not allowed – we’re worried they might tempt the hungry dinos too much! Oversized vehicles and vehicles with more than 9 riders are allowed but will need to contact Customer Service, firstname.lastname@example.org, for pricing and scheduling. A full list of Frequently Asked Questions can be found online, https://www.jurassicquest.com/drive-thru-faqs. For more information and to buy tickets visit www.JurassicQuest.com.

We attended Jurassic Quest as a family on the morning of Friday, August 21, 2020.
I will say I was a little apprehensive going with my kids who are older – ages 10, 13, and 14. I was concerned they would be too old and find it silly, but I needn’t have worried! We all loved it!
We found the entrance easily with our GPS app.
We thought the audio tour was wonderful. Great information, storytelling, and fun asides about William Shakespeare and Pluto. We laughed so hard we almost had to rewind it.
I do recommend best viewing out the driver’s side but the path zig zags through so everyone gets a good look.
We were impressed with the animatronic dinosaurs in their displays. We drove through and never felt rushed. I don’t think there was anyone behind us at all.
There were sounds for many dinosaurs, even though we can only speculate what they could have sounded like based on current animals that may have similar features.
We loved seeing all the different dinosaurs sorted into their various geological periods.
There are carnivores and herbivores, feathered, furred, flying, and swimming dinosaurs.
We were thrilled to see a life-size megalodon.
Oh no! This T Rex got hungry for Triceratops!
Thankfully, the companion Triceratops is ready to defend!
