  • Stopped here while just driving by. It was a refreshing walk that I needed. I think kiddos would really dig this place. It's a very easy 1-2 mile walk along the ridge. The Dino tracks are awesome. Gre...  more »
  • I am a bit mixed on this review. I think that it would have been a lot different if I was traveling with children. The information was great and there are real dinosaur fossils that stretch the view o...  more »
  • My son is a fan of dinosaurs so he was very anxious to visit this place. There are 2 locations, the Visitor Center and the Discovery Center. The Visitor Center is the main location and this is where t...  more »

  • Great place to explore some history and see dinosaur tracks imprinted in the rocks. Walking up the road and around the other side will take 1.5 - 2 hours stopping at the various locations. You can also pay to ride a bus, which is 45 minutes long and learn some new facts, but you miss out on a few places along the way and any hiking trails at the top. There are also bikers on the trails and road that feel the need to go downhill as fast as they possible can, so be aware of your surroundings and children. Weekends will be busy when the weather is nice.
  • The kids really enjoyed their trip to Dinosaur ridge. The guide was knowledgeable and took his time explaining everything he could in detail. It was a great learning experience and we can't wait to visit again.
  • Was as expected. I wish there were more interactive kids' activities.
  • Gotta See. TRUST ME. From 6 to 80, its interesting. I'm going back I have a hypothesis about what the tour guide told me. He's a geologist. The proof could be a mile away. Go look TELL ME WHAT U YHINK ABOUT THE ANGLE OF THE DINO PRINTS, USE YOUR HEAD, DON'T ACCEPT FAST ANSWERS. LOL LOL I like topographical and regional history, taught at Indiana univ.
  • This place was an absolute awful experience, I was there with my group of young paleontologist, and the staff didn't even know what they were talking about. I hate to leave bad reviews, but this place needs serious improvements. it's sad to see such fossils and prints go to waste.
