Dinosaurs are taking over Southern California in a new COVID-19 safe drive-thru exhibit.
On Friday, the Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru debuted in Pasadena and offered families an interactive drive-thru experience featuring life-like 70 foot dinosaurs.
Guests are able to safely interact with the dinosaurs from their vehicles as the dinosaurs roar and roam in realistic scenes across parking lots.
“There is no expense spared in terms of detail,” CEO of Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru Adam Friedman said. “These are life-like, true to scale, even the surfaces, their skin. Some have feathers, some have a rubbery texture. We do all the research and when we have these things designed and manufactured, we make sure that they are accurate and true to scale.”
The exhibit is expected to visit different locations across the Los Angeles and Orange County area through the end of February.
