Dino Safari - A Drive Thru Adventure
Grab your prehistoric passport and join more than 40 GIANT moving dinosaurs including Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, Microraptor and of course T-Rex to name a few, on a globetrotting expedition at Dino Safari USA! This drive-thru dino adventure is fun for the entire family! On your adventure, you will learn how dinosaurs evolved over time, where they called home, and the discoveries paleontologists have made about how they ate, moved, and behaved. Beware: along the journey, earthquakes might erupt, dinosaurs could battle, and your family might just have to help save a baby dinosaur’s life! So, buckle up for the adventure of a lifetime in this completely COVID-safe experience.
