At the brand new Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru, over 70 life-like dinosaurs are displayed outdoors in a daytime drive thru experience with a narrated tour.
Visitors arrive in their own vehicles and queue for a fun experience that has moving dinosaurs, complete with sounds! This experience will typically last one hour (not including wait time) and has a per-vehicle charge of $49. While a lot of the promo materials depict this event taking place in a park or in wildlife, please note that the events that we’ve seen scheduled all take place in a parking lot setting. However, with the proper amount of imagination, this won’t ruin the effect of REAL LIFE DINOSAURS!
This dinosaur drive-thru event would be a great field trip for that kiddo who really loves dinosaurs — the lifelike creatures are identified through signage that can be seen from your vehicle, in addition information about the dinos is shared as you drive by way of an audio tour that you play through your radio or phone.
Dinosaur Drive Thru
Typically, Jurassic World is held in person at the fairgrounds, however, with the threat of COVID-19 lingering in our midst, many businesses and events have either gone virtual or converted to a drive-thru event.
I actually think we would enjoy the drive-thru even more because my children won’t be begging to stand in line at the bounce house or stop at the gift shop. Speaking of gift shop, you can arrange reserve a bundle ahead of time that has trinkets and toys and gift items. These are ticket add-ons and cost between $12-40 when purchased in advance.
At the conclusion of your tour, a family photo is taken while you’re in your vehicle with dinosaurs behind the vehicle.
Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru will be at Coney Island Park (6201 Kellogg Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45230), August 21-30, 2020. Opening day hours are 11am-8pm and other daily hours are 9am-8pm. Time-slots and hours will vary by day. Police, Military, Medical Personnel and First Responders save 10% off with valid ID.
