PHILADELPHIA PA – A hot entertainment experience originally scheduled to be held in Oaks, but which was moved to Philadelphia to accommodate what promoters called “an overwhelming demand” for tickets, opens today (Friday, Sept. 4, 2020) at the Wells Fargo Center. It’s Jurassic Quest, promoted as an opportunity for visitors to take a trip back in time to when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
The Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru features more than 70 moving, life-like dinosaurs including a 50-foot Megalodon and an 80-foot Spinosaurus. Guests can drive through the approximately hour-long experience and listen to an interactive audio tour in their own vehicles. The price is set at $49 for average sized vehicles, and $80 for passenger vehicles that seat nine to fifteen people, promoters said.
Jurassic Quest started in Texas six years ago, and has since expanded into an annual event that visits more 192 cities a year. Since launching its pandemic-adjusted drive-through experience in mid-July, the tour has seen more 100,000 cars and around 400,000 people.
The event runs through Sept. 13. According to its website, all Philadelphia dates except for Sept. 9-11 are sold out.
