  • We have passed the large dinosaur near the interstate for years. Always thought it was neat but not neat enough to stop. Today we decided to stop and it was well worth it. On your visit there is a nic...  read more »
  • I took my granddaughter and she had a blast. She loved playing on the dinosaurs and asked me to take a picture of her with just about everyone of them there. She enjoyed the "mining" experience before...  read more »
  • My sister had stopped and taken pictures of some of the Dinosaurs up front. It was closed that day but I knew if 3 nearly 40 yr old people could have that much fun in the parking lot it would be a BLA...  read more »
  • 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!
  • This is a fun place for kids! There are fun dig activities and the dinosaur sculptures are out in nature so it can give a sense almost like a zoo. There is also a small museum to see some authentic fossils or casts of real fossils. Worth the stop while in the area.
  • Had a blast here with my two little girls, 2 and 3 years old. The second we pulled up they freaked out in excitement. Here's a list of pros and cons. Pros: 1. Plenty of space for picnicking 2. Large playground area 3. Wooded walking area with tons of large dinosaurs (our favorite part) 4. You get to climb on the huge Trex you can see from the highway 5. Informative museum 6. Neat video area 7. Inexpensive add-ons 8. Clean restrooms 9. Hands on activities Cons: 1. No concessions 2. Park is on the smaller side (we took our time, did all activities and only got three hours or so out of it) 3. Pricier gift shop, but when are gift shops ever cheap? (They each got two items and we grabbed a post card and magnet for all under $25). 4. If you're looking for fancy and animatronics don't bother. This isn't that type of park. Overall, we really enjoyed our time here. No, there's no animatronics, but if you're looking for old fashioned family fun this is it. You can save a few bucks by ordering tickets online. Take your time and enjoy it.
  • Great place for adults and kids! Owner was polite when I visited with my son, even though we were the only ones there on a rainy weekday. Would definitely go again.
