Arizona is one of the hottest places on Earth during the summer months, so get out of the house this April and enjoy this fun, educational trip with your entire family. Since a $49 ticket allows entry for up to 8 people in one vehicle, you don’t have to leave anyone behind. Each animatronic dino is displayed in a realistic scene that allows guests to experience them roaring and moving as they drive through the tour. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will remain safely inside their vehicles, you’ll still need to avoid the swinging tail of the 50-foot Spinosaurus!

At Tucson Hidden Gems, we are pet people, and we love that Jurassic Quest is fun for all family members, even our fur babies! “Yes, you are more than welcome to bring along your furry friends to meet their dinosaur buds. Pets and people must remain in their vehicles unless they are in designated areas where stopping is allowed.” -Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru FAQs. We are thankful that Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru makes pets and their owners feel welcome. We hope that more events will consider doing this in the future. Share this story with a pet owner that you think would love seeing their dino buds at Jurassic Quest!

In addition to the life-like dinosaur exhibits, there will be opportunities to visit with adorable baby dinosaurs and friendly dino trainers. Jurassic Quest thought of everything! They will even 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 2021!” One photo per family is included with ticket purchase and can be downloaded using a link and unique access code provided.

The adventure also includes a fun and informative audio tour that we highly recommend. Don’t forget to charge your cell phone batters and listen to this audio tour featuring beloved Jurassic Quest characters available in English and Spanish. Listen to Dino Dustin, Captain Caleb, Prehistoric Nick, Park Ranger Marty, and Safari Sarah as they help guests navigate through the dino herd and share little-known dino facts and trivia. We learned so many interesting facts about dinosaurs that we had never heard anywhere else before! The audio tour is available here:
