If you're a PeeWee's Big Adventure fan or have kids it's worth a quick stop

It's right off the highway (I10) so it's worth a quick on and off to check them out. There is a gift shop and free entry in the plant eater but there is an admission fee to get... read more

This entry in the Trip Advisor listings for Riverside is totally erroneous... this attraction is 50 miles from Riverside and should be listed only under Cabazon, CA and nowhere else. Locator maps need to be corrected, also. If you are traveling to and from Riverside via State Route 60 you might pass by the Dinosaurs but I would keep going... More

It's right off the highway (I10) so it's worth a quick on and off to check them out. There is a gift shop and free entry in the plant eater but there is an admission fee to get into the T-Rex. You stop, snap a few pics and you're back on the road. It's about 2/3 of the way from... More

My pet rat loved Dinosaur Land! A great family attraction even for pit stops. Paws Up! I was driving on the interstate and immediately saw the Dino's from afar. Screamed, "we're stopping!"

I agree that at other times it was kinda cool to see the "dinosaurs" as we approached them. Losing the view from a distance is a pity but real estate has value so it is hard to criticize the owners who developed the land. If you need gas and get off at the right exit you can still see them.... More

Growing up you could oogle and be surprised to see dinosaurs next to the freeway in the long drive with your parents. It was such a treat and comfort to see them each time we headed either way on the 10 freeway. Ignorant, short sighted, non-nostalgic Indian Casino types built fast food and gas stations in front of this wonderful... More

If you are on a long car trip with the kiddies this is a great stop! Get out and stretch for awhile as the kids roam. Most things look fairly new and redone. There is an area to walk through and some of the Dinos are robots that move. Both my daughters 9&11 had a great time. There was a... More

I wanted to go into the dinosaur's mouth, but could not fathom giving those people even one cent of my money.

My first visit to this location was March of 1975, yes that far back when you did not have the internet and cell phones......so I can tell you that this is a great and fun place to stop at, kids or not you will enjoy the old style feeling. Mostly it was a small truck stop, a quick rest, some... More
