Cars will drive through the fairgrounds to see a 40-foot T-Rex, a 30-foot Brachiosaurus, and other prehistoric dinos (80 in all). Some of the models move and roar, as well. There’s an audio tour you can download at home to play in the car during the adventure.

Tickets are good for a vehicle with up to 8 people and range from $49 –⁠ $69, depending on the day/time.

On its website, Dinosaur Adventures estimates the tour will take about 30–45 minutes from the time you go through the gate.

The event will be drive-through only, with portable restrooms available at the beginning and end of the tour. You’ll have to buy tickets online for a specific time slot.
