  • This is the perfect attraction for any dinosaur lover or child. The price is reasonable and the place is really cool, unlike anything else in the area! The dinosaurs are very realistic and are actual size. Admission included mini golf, a mirror maze, and a theater that plays walking with dinosaurs, so it will keep the kids busy for awhile!
  • Pretty cool little spot! Mirror maze was pretty fun and the kids enjoyed Mini golf!! Definetly visiting again!!
  • Cool and the kids loved it. Besides I'm kind of a geek too.
  • Full of super realistic dinosaur sculptures - makes for a great experience when visiting the Black Hills.
  • Excellent staff, growing business, excited to see what the future holds!

Where to stay in Rapid City

In Rapid City you'll find a variety of hotels and motels, but you can expect their rates to vary considerably depending on the season. Those located downtown provide easy walking access to some of the area's most popular restaurants and bars. Visitors wanting to explore the iconic Mount Rushmore or Custer State Park attractions may prefer the convenience of a hotel along Interstate 90.
