If you have seen The Wizard or Pee Wee's Big Adventure, then you are familiar with the dinosaurs. My husband and I took a day trip out here because this odd roadside attraction has been on my bucket list for years. I was sad to see that the Wheel Inn Restaurant had closed. It was still cool to climb in... More

The place is in need of a makeover. Had some cool dinos but the all needed some love as did the grounds. All in all I didn't leave feeling cheated but It could have been much much better.

Its interesting to see the "movie" in this small but amusing dinosaur park? Not sure if it constitutes a park, but is was fun taking pictures in the mouth of a huge beast. If you're a fan of Peewee's great adventure, then you'll love this place cuz this where they shot the dinosaur scenes. Worth the stop. And kids live... More

It's supposed to be open from 9:00 am to 7:30pm but every time i come through it is closed! It's looking really run down these days. I'm a local so I pass by often.

For those who love Peewee Herman, you'll be well familiar with these dinosaurs. Have been there for many years and are in surprisingly good shape for the age. You can seem them driving by on the highway and are basically in an Burger King parking lot. There is a museum you can pay for that allows you to go in... More

Dinosaurs from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. It ha been turned into a creationist type of roadside attraction. Larger Dinosaurs were great smaller ones in the museum were starting to fall apart. Glad that someone is, somewhat, taking care of it as I fear that it would fall in no time at all. Unfortunately restaurant out front is closed now. About... More

Never new this is a park. Been driving by for years just ignored t rex on the side of the freeway. If not for my 2 and 5 yr old grandkids who wants to see the more expensive dinosaur exhibit, which incidentally has a lot of negative reviews, I would not even search for an alternative place. Kids had a... More

OK - we needed gas so we took this opportunity to get off at the Cabazon exit, where the gas station is next to the dinosaurs. Took our kids here about 15 yrs ago. The dinosaurs are looking a bit tired, but if I had little kids who needed a roadtrip break -- this would be a good place to... More

We've driven by the Cabazon Dinosaurs on numerous occasions and glad we finally decided to stop in and check it out. The dinosaur replicas are pretty good and instigated some fun conversation. The mining activity for gold was a hit with the kids.
