North America’s largest dinosaur experience invading MetLife Stadium and Nassau County’s Point Lookout Lido Beach

New York, NY – Our dinosaurs are ready and raring to return from extinction and set to invade New York and New Jersey in October. For two weeks, the Jurassic Quest Drive Thru will be migrating to MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, NJ) and Point Lookout Lido Beach (Hempstead, Nassau County, NY) from October 2nd – October 11th, after multiple sold out weekends in Boston, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Detroit, Atlanta and Cincinnati.

The nation’s best touring dinosaur exhibit will transform outdoor parking areas of MetLife Stadium and Point Lookout Lido Beach (Town of Hempstead, NY) into an interactive drive-thru experience, featuring over 70 moving and life-like dinosaurs, as well as our 50 foot-long Megalodon at each location!  The drive-thru experience has seen over 500,000 cars and 1,000,000 people in attendance since launching the national tour in mid-July. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicle, you’ll still need to avoid the swinging tail of our 80 foot-long Spinosaurus!  

The Jurassic Quest Drive Thru is the only place to encounter some of the largest dinosaurs to ever roam the earth, and some of the eeriest marine creatures to ever lurk the ocean’s depths, from the safety of your family vehicle. Guests will be among the first in the nation to go on a quest with our online audio tour that will lead them throughout the thrilling dinosaur safari. For $49 per vehicle (8 people or less), your dino crew can time-travel and enjoy about an hour-long ride back in time.

Jurassic Quest worked in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated in every detail. Guests will have the chance to drive through realistic scenes, without leaving their own vehicles, depicting how we understand dinosaurs looked and moved!

In addition to the life-like dinosaur exhibits, there will be opportunities to visit with our one-of-a-kind baby dinosaurs and our team of dino trainers as well as the chance to 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 2020!” One photo per family is FREE and included in ticket purchase.

Jurassic Quest takes extra precautionary measures to provide a clean and safe event. Guests are to remain in vehicles and to wear masks in the event they exit the vehicle in allowed areas. Social distancing rules will be requested of all guests and maintained by Jurassic Quest crew. We will be sanitizing equipment, dinosaurs, and workstations more frequently and thoroughly throughout the entirety of the event. Our employees will be applying hand sanitizer and washing their hands regularly throughout each day, in addition to wearing masks. Guest safety and enjoyment is our top priority.

Those willing to take the challenge and join our New York and New Jersey Drive Thru Quest will need to buy tickets in advance online at Tickets are $49 per vehicle. Guests must travel through the drive-thru in the comfort of their own vehicle - no rentals or golf carts will be provided and walkers are not allowed. To ensure participant safety, all guests must ride inside their vehicles (yes, pets inside vehicles are allowed), no riders in truck beds, however. Trailers are also not allowed - we’re worried they might tempt the hungry dinos too much! Oversized vehicles and vehicles with 9 or more riders are allowed but will need to contact Customer Service, [email protected], for pricing and scheduling.  A full list of Frequently Asked Questions can be found online, For more information and to buy tickets visit
