  • We have driven by this a few times and decided to take our 2 yr old to visit. She had a blast running around and checking out all the dinosours. It took about 45 min to walk through the park.

  • Really cool place! A little outdated and max time spent there would be maybe 45 minutes. Does offer great facts and info on the dinosaurs. Great for learning as well. Price of admission was reasonable. Overall, this place is neat but not a huge attraction. As a roadside attraction, it does offer a massive gift shop with toys and handmade trinkets. Most of which have nothing to do with dinosaurs. Would recommend if you have a few hours to kill and want to take the kids out for some fun.
  • It truly could never be overstated just how amazing this place was and what a mind-blowing experience it was to explore first hand! We hit this as a quick pit stop during a long road trip last year and I had the time of my life at dinosaur land. I would absolutely recommend going out of the way to stop and visit this place if it's an option for you! Highly highly recommended! Also definitely check out the gift shop which has all sorts of cool stuff
  • Quick 1-hour walk in a park basically. Would be great for young kids and is a great activity to stretch the legs and enjoy being outdoors. The attractions are older but the novelty is still there. A couple photo opportunities are guaranteed during your visit. Staff was friendly.
  • The gift shop was reasonably priced and had a nice selection. It was $6 per adult, and babies under 2 are free. We will probably come again once our baby is older and can walk around more. I think any kids under maybe 6 or so would like coming here. Our baby loves dinosaurs and roared at them. You'll probably spend 20min at this attraction and get some silly pictures for a photo album when you visit. 🙂🦖🦕
  • Fun little side attraction. The dinosaurs are neat to look at, and look like they took a lot of work (most). The gift shop has a ridiculous amount of things (mostly standard roadside attraction fare), but some local stuff. Got the preserves and hot sauce which I was told was local. Both were good, got the medium spiciness, which I'd put at the same level as Frank's Red Hot (normal). Tour is a simple walking tour, takes about 20 minutes if you just glance at things, about an hour if you take your time. Can't climb on anything, except Kong, which is kinda fun. A few dinosaur facts are outdated, and the T-Rex is closer to Allosaurus, but some fun photo ops.
