Waste of a drive for us. Dinosaurs looked like the Sinclare Dinos. My kids 13, 10, 10. They didn't get anything out of it. Not what I was expecting.

My six year old is really into dinosaurs so this being a free park we thought it would be a great stop to let him run wild for a little bit. If you ask him this was the best part of our South Dakota vacation. The dinosaurs are on a hill in Rapid City and the views of the city... More

Dinosaur Park is a great place to stop and let the kids out to run for a little bit before continuing on your trip.What trip to SD doesn't include a photo op here! A small gift shop is open during the summer, and there is no cost to play on the dinos.

Like many attractions in the hills, this involves a significant stair climb. These guys are really on the very tip top of a large hill in Rapid City. You can see a few of them from down below. It's a fun roadside attraction to stop at and take a few photos - but there isn't really anything to do here... More

One child (13 y/o daughter) gave this a 3 and one (11 y/o son) said it was the best ever. This park has definitely seen better days, but hey, it's free! It involves a hike up several stairs, and I gotta say the 360 degree view was incredible. It gave the kids an opportunity to run off some steam after... More

I love dinosaurs, and anytime I get to see anything about them I'll do it, seeing that this was free it was perfect! I had so much fun taking photos and being a kid even though I'm 31 years old. I loved the views along with the attraction. I'm also glad this was free!

Maybe cheesy but lots of fun This isn't going to be for someone who cant drive tight pigtails and curves and isn't for anyone who would have trouble getting up several steps. As it has its mix of both. The view from the top of the city is just awesome and we posed with the 7 dinos they had on... More

Its a small spot with a great view and neat dinosaurs to see:) It was interesting to stop and just walk through the area, which is on top of a hill. Its free and doesn't take up much time but it was interesting:)
