    Dinosaurs, plaster heads of celebrities, a (really sweet) mirror maze, informational movies, and mini-golf. It's a bunch of fun for not a lot of money.  more »

    Pretty cool twist on dinosaurs in an area with lots of exhibits. They have a mix of heads and full size models of dinosaurs instead of the fossils and fossil replicas. Placards had lots on information as well.

    It was kind of hokey and cheap-looking, but the life-size dinosaurs were cool. Mini golf was included with admission. It was $35-$36 for one adult and two kids. The place is not worth the price.
