She said the animatronic experience was worth the price of admission. The attraction ends this weekend and heads to Bellingham. It’s a drive-thru for the Homo sapiens, who must stay in cars.
In some cities there’s also a sister exhibit called the Ancient Oceans which features now extinct sea creatures (which are also animatronic!). The Dino route lasted min to completely drive though, pending traffic. Mega Packs and Dino Packs were also available for pre-order that could be picked up at the door containing; dinosaur paint kits, dinosaur dolls, light-up toys, dinosaur eggs, toy trucks, and stuffed animals. The entire event was contactless and formatted to be experienced from inside of one’s own vehicle. Cars leaked out of the fairgrounds rear lot from the south entrance near Aten Rd. where event goers waited to be checked in.
For myself the most impressive part of the Jurassic Quest experience is the huge scale of many of the dinosaurs which are true to life in size. The motions paired with the sound effects and scenery really bring it to life. Book your two-hour admission tickets online in advance.

Ride a cute little baby Dinosaur, be courageous and ride a 12-foot animatronic T-Rex & Triceratops. Tracey, a friendly young T-Rex greets guest once every 3-hours and can be found walking and playing with the kids. For advice on veterinary procedures and animatronic movements, the filmmakers sought a veterinary surgeon who had experience with African wildlife.
The dinosaur’s death was the last shot on the entire film to be finished; Bayona and the post-production team struggled to perfect the CGI of the scene with only several days left to complete it. They worked through the final night to perfect the scene’s colors and composition, shortly before the film’s release. The Main Street section of the Jurassic World theme park was rebuilt on Police Beach in Hawaii for a scene where Owen and Claire return to the island. The set had been built previously in Louisiana for filming of the previous Jurassic World, but was dismantled after filming concluded.
They have true-to-life size dinosaurs, ranging from the small Compsognathus – Remember Jurassic Park 2? They were the ones who attacked in the beginning… – to GIGANTIC dinosaurs that you’ll almost certainly see from the parking lot. They have over 100 dinosaurs that truly couldn’t look more real. Even as an adult who’s never really been all that into dinosaurs, Jurassic Quest is a thing of beauty. This is a traveling show and the producers of the exhibit are at the mercy of what the venue has to offer as far as space and atmosphere. I’ve seen poor reviews where guests said that most of the dinosaurs weren’t moving, it was small and crowded, very limited rides, etc.
