What do you get when you cross an uberX and a dinosaur from Adelaide Zoo? An uberSAURUS-X.

This Saturday, dinosaurs will be a familiar sight around Adelaide’s suburban streets as Adelaide Zoo and Uber team up to bring dinosaurs to the streets of Adelaide.

Simply open the Uber app and request uberSAURUS-X to dino-score a visit from a prehistoric 8ft dinosaur – right to your front door.

Successful requestors will receive a free ride to and from Adelaide Zoo and free entry for you and up to three friends.

Enjoy a complimentary rip-roaring day, snapping dino-mite selfies as you walk amongst more life-sized dinosaurs at the Adelaide Zoo Dinosaurs Alive exhibit.

Don’t let your weekend be a dino-bore, request uberSAURUS by:

  1. Opening the Uber app this Saturday (7 Jan 2017), 10am to 2pm.
  2. Selecting the ‘uberSAURUS’ option.
  3. If successful – you and a friend will get:
    • A visit from the uberSAURUS
    • Complimentary tickets to Dinosaurs Alive at Adelaide Zoo
    • uberX rides to and from the Adelaide Zoo


  • Demand will be high, and availability very limited. Pro tip – get your friends to request too, before the promo is extinct at 2pm.
  • Our Nanotyrannus friend is big enough to tyrannosaurus-wreck the place. Successful requestors will need to come outside to experience the uberSAURUS.
  • The Adelaide Zoo day pass is valid for up to 4 people to use on Saturday 7 January only. However, all guests will need to be picked up at the same location, as your uberX ride will not be able to make any extra stops.
  • Have a friend who’s new to Uber? Share the code ‘UBERSAURUSX’ and they will receive $20 off their first Uber ride in Adelaide (valid until 30 January).

Miss out on uberSAURUS?

By requesting uberSAURUS, you will receive 20% off Dinosaurs Alive at Adelaide Zoo.

Dinosaurs Alive gives budding paleontologists the opportunity to walk alongside seven life-size and life-like roaring, snarling and moving animatronic dinosaurs at Adelaide Zoo.

Come face-to-face with the dinosaurs and learn more about Adelaide Zoo’s work as a conservation charity saving their modern-day ancestors from extinction by visiting the exhibit before 29 January 2017.
