This is fun to see. But I wouldn't pay $3.00 just to walk up in it. They didn't have much information on it either. The tour I took gave me more information on it. The people that work in the center were very nice and helpful however.

The view is underwhelming. There's hardly anything to see up there. For adults, it's decent exercise and sort of satisfies the curiosity. It might be neat for little kids. The price for a family is tolerable. You're better off taking photos of the thing from the ground and moving on to the hoodoos or the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

Open all-year round, this attraction is promoted to be the "World's Largest Dinosaur". Provided climbing an 86' tall T-Rex is not a problem, this can be fun. Having just been to a nearby fossil museum, the murals and few fossil display on the way up were quite uninteresting. However, the view from the top through the dinosaur's opening (or jaws)... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your climb up our 106 stairs (yes, 86 feet!) to her gaping jaws. Hopefully you also took in the many murals painted by local artist, Gary Cox as well as the fossil castings. 12 people can fit in her pearly whites at one time and we encourage visitors... More

Let's be honest, you can't miss it....it's hard to not stop when you see her, she really is LARGE! Great view from the top, neat things to check out on the way up! The little shop has lots of great kid things! Our daughter loved it, along with the store/ice cream shop across the street!!!

The kids love it, so we have to go up to the top of the Dinosaur each time we visit Drumheller! It is exactly what you'd expect from a "world's largest..." display (a little cheesy), but if you're there, you kinda have to go!

We were surprised the little kids loved going up and down this dinosaur. It's huge, 109 steps or so. The view at the top is great, and there is a little souvenir shop at the bottom. Great fun for a little while .

Saw the sign and stopped by. Went into the visitor information center that was attached to this beast, got some information and thought about going in and up the beast. Saw the prices and decided against it.
