Maybe you’ve seen the Jurassic trailers in the Rose Bowl parking lot and wondered? 


Here’s the deal, Dad.


As you know, Pasadena’s Rose Bowl Stadium has seen its share of big events in its history,  from the Rolling Stones to Beyonce. But perhaps nothing quite as “big big” as the upcoming  “Jurassic Quest” event, which opens this weekend. 


Billed as North America’s largest and most realistic dinosaur event, the event allows guests to traverse through the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic Periods and experience for themselves what it was like to be among dinosaurs of all kinds. 


Jurassic Quest is the only such dinosaur event with over 100 true to life-size animatronic dinosaurs in each of its indoor touring shows from the very small to the gigantic. 


In collaboration with leading paleontologists, each dinosaur has been apparently painstakingly replicated in every detail. 


The new Jurassic Quest Drive Thru version of the show features over 70 life-like dinosaurs including the very popular T. Rex, Spinosaurus and Triceratops. 


The animatronic dinos are staged in realistic scenes that allow guests to experience them roaring and moving from their own vehicles  as they drive their way through the tour. 


Baby dinosaurs greet guests and bring big smiles to explorers of all ages. 


During the drive-thru experience, guests are guided by an engaging and informative digital audio tour featuring show entertainers and dino wranglers in the hour-long show.. 


In case you’re wondering, guests stay in their cars throughout the tour with limited contact, if any, with staff who wear masks, social distance, and follow all state and local guidelines regarding health and safety. 


To further ensure the safety of patrons and staff, all equipment and workstations undergo regular sanitization throughout the show. All attendees also receive a free, safari-style family photo in their vehicles set against a dinosaur backdrop as a souvenir of the event.
