A mass gathering of prehistoric dinosaurs has made its way to Arizona.

Dinosaur Drive-thru, a traveling pop-up drive-thru attraction that features some 60 life-sized static and animatronic dinosaur statues, has opened at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, off Interstate 10 and Wild Horse Pass Blvd.

The event is scheduled to run from Wednesday, Nov. 11 through Thanksgiving weekend, until Nov. 29, according to the event's website.

Arizona is the first stop for the traveling exhibit, said Jim Wojdyla, part of the attraction's marketing team.

Admission is $40-$80, plus $5 in processing fees, per vehicle, which can hold up to eight people. Tickets have to be bought through the event's website and are booked for a specific date and block of time.

There are add-ons, such as a souvenir photo for $20 and a gift bag for an additional $35, that people can buy.

The entire experience lasts 30-45 minutes, according to the website. Tickets are not refundable, unless the event is canceled.

There is an "audio tour" on the website that can be played while vehicles drive along the route (a link to the audio tour will also be texted to you).
