  • Amazing place for kids and parents too. My son was so excited the entire time. We went to Jurassic quest and it was dark and a little scary for my kids ages 2 and 4. This place is perfect. Not too cartoonish yet not so real they scare them. Price is reasonable. I love that you can go in and out all day on the same ticket. And not one time did I hear "mommy hold me" or "I'm ready to go".
  • We brought our 2 almost 3 year old, and he LOVED IT! we got to walk around and take some incredible pictures! There is a nice play area for after the walk that he couldn't get enough!l of it! We enjoyed the Dino Dig and got to keep 3 little artifacts.
  • The dinos are kind of hokey looking statues (orange?) but love that it's dog friendly and very affordable. If your kid loves dinosaurs, you can't go wrong.
  • Was an amazing place, we did this for a weekend outing. We did not think much of it at first once you start on the walk way to see the Dino's your mind will be blown away! They life size and replica of dinosaurs! Hey have a walk path and you walk buy the replicas that are set up nicely as if they were grazing on the land. Their is many photo opportunities as well! The staff was very friendly, and the it all was very well maintained and clean. The best part would have to be during the last walk out of the park you get you will see a Beautiful scenery of what a Dino filled plain would look like. Amazing trip and worth the money!
  • We chose to use this as a pit stop on our way back home from Nashville. It was a fun way for the kids to stretch their legs. The path showing the dinosaurs is a decent length, but not too long for little legs. One of the things I liked the most was how they had some of the dinosaurs set up to make it look like they were actually interacting in the forest. There is a lot on site to do, some of which my kids (who are 4 and 2) were probably a little young to appreciate. But then they are still young enough to be wowed by the dinosaur statues. The staff was friendly. I am still undecided about the price. Personally I think it'd probably on the high side of what I would consider to be reasonable, but I'm still on the fence. You can do everything there in a short amount of time. I feel like you need to slow down and take your time if you want to get your money's worth. Everyone had a really great time, and that's what matters.
