Mediocre at best
Jul 2021 • Family
It’s basically a bunch of mechanical dinosaurs in a parking lot. Many needed attention and repair. No long lines for us and it flowed pretty well. Audio tour was ok but didn’t always have clear transitions. Not worth the $50 for the event. thank Overall, it kept my four year old entertained for 45min.

Huge rip-off of a junk event
Jun 2021 • Family
A 1 is generous for this traveling event that visited the Boston, MA area. My son took his 2 yr old to this event & even the 2 yr old was pointing out the sad parts to this event. There was no prior information given about bringing up a Youtube app for sound for the event & it was just overall shabby and unconvincing - even to a 2 yr old. Too many things weren't working & the "puppet handlers" were sitting on chairs and not even bothering to be engaging. This was suppressed to be a Father's day event, but when my son showed up he was told that 100s of cars had shown up before him and that the show was postponed for a week.... but none of the ticket holders were told of this postponement. My son went back the following week & faced the sad disappointment of a Junk event. Highly recommend doing just about anything else with the kids rather than wasting your time & money on this. I'm posting this review rather than my son because I purchased the tickets for this.

HORRIBLE!! Don’t waste your money!!! None of my kids enjoyed this disappointing display. Most of the dinosaurs were partially broken, the small dinosaurs were blown over, and the signs were faced down and couldn’t be read. $50 down the drain. There is nothing more boring than driving in a long line of cars at 1 MPH to look at bad (and broken) replicas of dinosaurs in a parking lot. The audio tour was completely off and was talking about things we’d already passed no matter how many times we reset it. I could have had more fun streaming a dinosaur movie with popcorn. WHAT A JOKE!

Even the kids wanted to leave!

It was a pathetic zig-zag drive through on an open black too governed only by orange cones with the dinosaurs prop lines up along the other side of the cones. It was a beginner's idea at the logistical way it should be set up. The quality of the props and the way each dinosaur was showcased were poor. It was basically the dinosaur prop and a plastic tropical tree that was worn out and in bad shape. One dinosaur even had a broken limp arm and the stuffing was coming out of where it connected to the rest of the body. The whole experience was pathetic. I had 5 children in the car with me ages ranging from 3-10 and they all said "this is so dumb. Can we get out of the car line and go home".

Underwhelming, Overpriced
Feb 2021 • Family
My heart sank the moment we turned the corner to enter the event. There it was— a big parking lot laid out with with cones and a sea of cars, interspersed with dinosaur models. I had been expecting an immersive experience, with lots of scenery. I had described it to my kids as a Dino safari. Nope. They literally had storage containers (minimally draped with greenery) out next to the dinosaurs. Some of the models were cool, but others were shabby, not working and/or had mechanical parts exposed. The kids (3,6,7,11) were just not that excited by it.
The gift shop they force you to drive through was unbelievably overpriced, like $25 for a dollar store light up sword. The guy taking our photo was impatient as we tried to get everyone in the car squeezed over to the car windows. At least let people stand in front of some scenic backdrop (socially distanced from the photographer, of course). The photo was included in the wayyyy overpriced admission (and I used a 25% off discount). This was worth maybe $15 per car. Christmas lights at the Speedway were a much better value.
I can’t complain about the time because it took just about an hour, like they had said. The audio tour was informative at least.
Overall, save your money. Their web site made it look so exciting, but if I had perused the reviews or watched clips of it on YouTube, I wouldn’t have bothered.

Dinosaur Quest is Not Worth it!!
Jan 2021 • Family
The ride was informative but could’ve got it through a TV. We have a 13, 12, and 8 yr old kids and they were bored out of their minds. The most fun was with the dinosaur mask. If I knew what I now know after the experience, I would rather not go and let the ticket go to waste than sit through it for an hour. Once you enter, you can’t leave so it felt as if we paid to be tortured. Drive through Christmas light shows a WAY more exciting! Please watch the YouTube videos of what people have posted and you will see robotic dinosaurs in line. If that is something you would like to watch for an hour, then this show is for you.

Best Family Fun Night!
Jan 2021 • Family
FAMILY FUN NIGHT APPROVED! Fun for kids and adults. The tour is about an hour long, the dinosaurs are very realistic and they move! This was a great Covid safe fun experience. Super creative way to get out of the house and have clean fun. The staff was so helpful and friendly! Will definitely do again! Must recommend to find the YouTube audio for the tour before going.

Shows hard work, misses key points.
Jan 2021 • Couples
We appreciate the work to build realistic life-sized dinosaurs and transport them around the country. We also weren’t surprised that it was a long line of stop and go cars. Acceptable.

But two shortcomings could have been avoided.
1. We did a night drive thinking the mood would be better and because we were promised well lit displays. Most were not lit at all. Would not do night again.
2. The audio you stream or download (mostly for the kids) had no forward or back commands. If you ever get out of sync with the display you are out of luck.
