    We went with our grandkids and they had a blast for a few hours. They enjoyed digging for the bones in both the inside and outside sand boxes. They have several easy to walk walkways that lead you all...  more »

    We go here regularly and it is always so much fun! They have an indoor museum setup with a paleontology lab and active paleontologists who you can watch work and touch things they're working on! Upsta...  more »

    This place is amazing and well worth the admission price. Not only are the dinos in the park fun and great photo-fodder, there is so much information on display inside and outside.  more »

    This park is a lot of fun for little children. We brought a 4 yr, 2.5 yr, 18 mo and 10 mo old and they all had fun! The path to walk on is nice and has lots of shade. There is an outside park that is perfect for small and bigger children. There are picnic tables in the shade and you can bring your own food.

    We loved this place!! Not only was our niece so excited to see all the life size Dinosaurs, she was able to go Gem hunting! Larry who took care of us was AMAZING! He took the time to explain how the gem hunting works and how to look out for signs that rocks may be near by! Someone who truly loves his job and it shows! I wish I could give more than 5 starts on our experience with him alone!! We will be coming back in the future!

    This was our first time visiting from Colorado. I brought my mother, 13 year old son and my 1 year old daughter. For one, the price to get in to the park was great! The location of the park couldn't be any better. It was beautiful and there was much to see...We all absolutely loved it! We will definitely be back for another visit.

    The Dinosaur park has something for everyone. Walking around outside gets you exercise and information on each dinosaur statue. There are playgrounds for the kids. At lunch time they have concessions open for food and drink purchases. There's a gift shop. If you are interested in unearthing some fossils, there is a community sand box with fossils. You can also pay a fee to unearth treasures inside the museum portion of the park. Inside the museum portion are skeletal statues of dinosaurs, interactive touch-screens, a coloring station for kids, moving dinosaur statues, and at times there are volunteers working on real fossils. The museum and outside attractions are ADA compliant.

    Wow. What an experience! We were treated to a tour with Jeff Bond, director of education at the park. He was extremely knowledgeable and our boys absolutely loved everything he had to teach about dinosaurs. This experience was much better than the Thanksgiving Point Dinosaur Museum.
