Roars from children and dinosaurs can be heard at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds: Jurassic Quest Drive Thru rumbled into town last week.
Jurassic Quest features 70 life-sized dinosaurs, which are located in the parking lot just north of the fairgrounds. Visitors choose one of three guided audio tours: “The Original Audio Tour,” “The Adventures of Nick & Marty” or “Safari Sarah’s Big Day.”
According to Tommy Bennett — also known as Tour Guide Tommy, who travels with the exhibit — about 250 cars per hour have been driving past the prehistoric creatures.
Ticket prices are $54.50 for a regular-sized vehicle of up to eight people, or $85.50 for an extra-large vehicle with nine to 15 people. COVID-19 precautions are in place, as employees have been vaccinated but are wearing masks.
The dinosaurs will be heading out Sunday. The tour launched in June and still has stops in Atlanta, Houston and New Orleans, among other cities.
Organizers recommend that guests purchase tickets in advance at the Jurassic Quest website.
