Is there anything that captures the attention and imagination of kids more than dinosaurs? Dinosaurs are mysterious, cool, exciting, and also a bit scary and kids can’t seem to get enough of them. So why not feed into your child’s love of dinosaurs and check out one of the amazing drive-thru experiences that exist. Drive-thru dinosaur experiences are like no other and make it feel as though you’re walking with – and co-existing with – these massive ancient creatures.
If this sounds like the kind of thing your child would love, then here are a few drive-thru dinosaur experiences you will want to check out.
Jurassic Quest Drive Thru
The Jurassic Quest Drive Thru is an event taking place across several cities in the United States. This one allows participants to drive-thru an exhibition with more than 70 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. It’s like being on a safari except the wildlife are creatures that went extinct millions of years ago. Not only are the dinosaurs incredibly realistic looking but they are displayed in scenes that also feel lifelike, so kids get a sense of how they would have interacted and behaved in real life.
As you enter the drive-thru experience, you’ll also be able to listen to the digital audio tour, which provides more background on the scenes and the various dinosaurs. The entire experience is about one hour in length, with plenty of time to feel like you got your fair share of dinosaur adventure and fun.
Looking for a Canadian drive-thru dinosaur experience? If so, Dinosaurs Live at the Stevensville Zoo is the one to check out. Guests will remain in their cars and drive through more than 60 exhibits. Of course, just as you would expect, these dinosaurs are animatronic so they move and roar and look incredibly intimidating. All the most popular types will be represented, so if your child has a favorite, or two, they are bound to see them with this experience.
Six Flags Xpedition Dino
During September, October, and November there will be select dates available for the Six Flags Xpedition Dino drive-thru experience. This one offers 30 life-sized dinosaurs along its trail. They appear more lifelike thanks to the realistic sounds and motions they make.
The way this experience works is that you can add it onto your Wild Safari Drive-Thru Adventure or as part of your theme park pass.
Should you sign up for this experience, it is recommended that you download the printable guide or the audio guide to use during the drive-thru experience. This will add more color and context to the dinosaurs.
Many Walk-Thrus Also Available
And if you’d prefer to get out of the car and do a walk-thru experience either indoors or outdoors, there are plenty of those available as well.
Up Close and Personal with the Dinosaurs
So if you’re looking for something engaging, exciting, and unique to do and your kids happen to love all things dinosaur-related, these drive-thru experiences are well worth checking out.
