If you’re local, you’ve probably heard lots of buzz about Jurassic Quest at Gillette Stadium. I first heard about it in my Facebook mom’s group and was excited to check it out for myself this past weekend. My family hasn’t done much this summer because of the pandemic, so I was pretty excited to go to a fun event that I could attend from the safety of my own vehicle.
But what is Jurassic Quest?
Jurassic Quest is the first event of its kind hosted at Gillette Stadium, home of my beloved New England Patriots and the New England Revolution. The innovative experience allows guests to travel back in time as they drive through an interactive exhibit featuring over 70 moving and roaring dinosaurs such as a ginormous Megalodon and of course, a T-Rex.
I have to admit that I was very curious how it was going to work, but I have to say that I found the whole event to be really well organized. As cars arrived, we were separated into two lanes and it stayed that way throughout the entire drive-though event. This set up allowed for cars to get close up views of the dinosaurs on both sides of the dinosaurs. Keep in mind that cars will be moving very slowly throughout the whole event, but there is also plenty of time to stop and take photos with all of the dinos. Also, once you’re in, you are in – there are no exits and you should plan on being inside the exhibit for about 45 minutes.
There is also an online audio tour for your Jurassic Quest, which added to the fun of the experience.
Jurassic Quest has been here for a few weeks already and this is the last week, so if you want to check it out now is the time. It’s $49 per carload ($80 for vehicles that seat 9-15 people) and you can get your tickets here: https://www.jurassicquest.com/events/drive-thru-boston
