Ford Idaho Center Goes Back In Time With Drive-Thru Dinosaur Experience
While Idaho's COVID-19 case numbers continue to fall, organizers continue to adapt their events to make their experiences safe for the family. That's how the return of Jurassic Quest became a drive-thru event!
If you've taken your family to past Jurassic Quest events in the past, you know how truly cool they are for the kids. The creators of the popular dinosaur tour have managed to bring the prehistoric giants back to life in as animatronic creatures. Kids were able to ride on their backs, pet baby dinos and even dig for fossils. It was a great hands-on experience that got little ones excited about science and history. Unfortunately, the 2020 visit from Jurassic Quest was canceled due to COVID-19.
But now? They've pivoted and found a way for the dinosaurs to come roaring back to Nampa! It's happening in the form of a drive-thru event happening in the Ford Idaho Center's parking lot May 14-23. During the drive-thru event, explorers can listen to one of two audio tours narrated by Safari Sarah, Dino Dustin, Captain Caleb, Prehistoric Nick and Park Ranger Marty as they drive through a herd of 70 dinosaurs and the 50-foot long Megalodon, a giant prehistoric shark!
To remember one of the best days ever, families get a safari-style photo of their vehicle as part of the ticket price! Tickets start at $49 for vehicles seating 8 passengers or fewer.
