  • Straight out of a 1950-1960's road trip! It's a flashback to the old roadside attractions! It's campy, silly, and just plain fun. Sure some of the statues are I rough shape but the experience of this ...  more »

  • Took our son and grandson... It was cool but not what we were expecting, took us 15 mins to walk thru the whole park.. The gift shops are Awesome!! We loved learning about the different dinosaur! I was more disappointed because we live in Delaware and booked a motel room to stay the night before and planned to spend the day there, and it wasn't worth all the money spent. It could've been just a day trip!!
  • Americana. Some of the dinosaurs are definitely fossils. A fun trip for a good time with young kids. The signs are great in that they are accurate.
  • I felt like I was 2 again. Running around interacting with the dinosaurs. Pretending to hunt pterodactyls to riding a baby triceratops into the path of impending doom of the giant T. rex in front of us. I hope this place is still around for when I have kids of my own
  • If you have small dinosaur lovers in your family this could be their favorite destination. Older kids may notice that it is from a very dated and simpler time when a basic non moving statue was enough to thrill. My four year old loved the walk thru the park, especially the depictions of meat eaters attacking their prey. I took lots of pictures and the pictures actually turned out looking better than the statues looked in real life. It will be great memories for us!
  • If you're looking for a campy roadside attraction, this place is great. Most of the dinos (and a few unrelated creatures) have seen better days, but that's part of the charm. Some stand alone (with informative signs); others are engaged in hilariously violent battle. It was everything I hoped for.
