Pretty Neat

My son is 3 1/2 and loves Dinosaurs, so this was pretty cool and well done. I think they should amp up the volume on the T-Rex to make it really effective

Great place! Grandson loved all the realistic life size dinosaurs. They move, roar , and are impressive! The staff is great answering questions and leading presentations, giving kids (& adults) of their time & knowledge & still making it fun! It's too bad they are closed & need to find a new spot to move to. Hopefully they will find... More

One of the best attractions I've ever seen on the East Coast. They have to move because they are building a high school on the property any ideas would be greatly appreciated so they don't move to Kansas. it's like taking a walk through Jurassic Park and getting to see a mini 3Dmovie as well.

I accompanied my Daughter's family a couple weeks ago. As a fan of dinosaurs, I found it interesting but expected much more. Aside from the walk through the woods to view the dinosaurs, the other activities, which kids may enjoy, are not included in the base admission price. Including one add-on activity that took less than ten minutes at $10.00... More

Went here today with my 6 year old and 18 month old. It's a lovely place even if you aren't into dinosaurs. They are life size, move, make sounds and it is large so doesn't feel crowded. Was worth the visit and I would go yearly except it's closing its doors next week. Heard it's moving to Kansas. We sat... More

We had a good time looking at the animatronic dinosaurs. I wish they moved a little more. It's a nice place to take the kids, there were several summer camp grouns when we went. Last day for the park is September, so visit now before they close!

Unique and fun attraction for our family with a 4 and 7 year old. The dino attraction set along a walking trail in the woods brought the Dino's to life in a way that an indoor museum can't. It was warm and sunny on our visit. There are plenty of benches and shade tents along the way and the walking... More

This was a lot of fun used Groupon and it worked out great. Would do it again. They do charge for parking $5. Otherwise it was a good trip. I would also go to museum of Natural History to continue the dinosaur theme.
