EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Life-size dinos are taking over East Hartford’s Rentschler Field. Welcome to Jurassic Quest!

Can you believe it, “Jurassic Park” the movie came out 28 years ago. But starting today, you can get a Jurassic experience right here in Connecticut.

The Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru has transformed the parking lot of the Pratt and Whitney Stadium on 615 Silver Lane.

Nicholas Schaefer, Education Specialist for Jurassic Quest, said, “I like to call it gateway science. Basically, every single scientific field you can think of can be tied to paleontology, to dinosaurs.”Aside from being a cool way to generate interest in S.T.E.M.”

There will be around 70 dinos to see, including baby dinosaurs, even a full-grown, fierce T-Rex and a 50-foot Megalodon. There will also be trainer meet and greets. Visitors will be able to see the dinos roaring and moving as they drive through the tour.

Visitors will have the ability to exit the vehicle for photos and videos. There are three audio tours to experience during the visit as well. It runs from July 30-Aug. 8, 2021.
