Just when you thought no one could save us from the wreckage that is 2020, here come the dinosaurs.
The prehistoric creatures, who know a little bit about global catastrophe, star in a new “drive-thru experience” coming to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.
Jurassic Quest, an attraction that features more than 70 moving dinosaurs, including a 50-foot megalodon, an 80-foot spinosaurus and baby dinosaurs, will be at the venue Oct. 2 through 11.
After a tour of cities including Philadelphia and Boston starting in July, the dinosaur attraction is coming to both New Jersey and Lido Beach in Point Lookout, New York.
An online audio tour guides visitors through the dino safari in their cars. Guests remain in their cars, but must wear a mask if they leave their vehicles.
Another local dinosaur attraction that long predates the drive-thru is Field Station: Dinosaurs in Leonia.
The dinosaur park was forced to temporarily close (until May 2021) after Tropical Storm Isaias damaged the dinosaurs (including the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex) and downed trees and power lines at the property in August.
Tickets for Jurassic Quest, which must be purchased in advance, are $49 per car (for up to eight people) and include a family photo with a dinosaur backdrop; jurassicquest.com.
