We went here just out of the blue. It would be a great place for kids but adults probably not going to get much out of it.

Very steep hill if you are in poor health. Great for kids to burn off energy. It is a great view when you get to the top.

A cute area with a few Dinosaurs. It was an o.k. photo op to say we were there. There are a lot of stairs to get to the Dinosaurs. A great view of the city from the top. Would not go back once we did it.

Dinosaur park is on the top of a hill but well worth the drive up there. The dinosaur's are larger than life! It was really fun to see and take pictures. It would be great for kids of all ages.

The park offers a great view of Rapid City from on high, but it leaves a lot to be desired. To be up close, you have to climb at least 100 steps. The few dinosaur statues displayed are not accurately painted. They all look like the Sinclair logo. Maybe kids would like this.

My three year old asks to climb every green dinosaur at every sinclair gas station we pass. I knew this would be a hit with him. He liked it. It made him smile and didn't take long. The view is worth the jaunt.

We walked the (what seemed like) 20,000 steep rock steps up to the first dinosaur. Only to realize that all this place is is a few concrete dinosaurs that you can't really climb on, there's no playground or park at all. It's all super dangerous, super boring, and not worth the climb or getting your kid's hope's up either. The... More

The little ones will enjoy this place. It has a cute gift shop with a lot of gifts, toys, books ect for all ages. You can even grab a treat and enjoy a beautiful view. A definite thumbs up for this place.

While we were eating in Rapid City we could see this Park on the distant hill so we thought, "Oh why not it's free". After the irritating road driving up the hill there's a little parking lot then a nice little hike to see the 4 or so dinosaurs. I'm sure the wind added to my irritation, but I couldn't... More

This park is in a beautiful area. Great for kids. There are dinosaur statues that you can take your pictures with. Pretty fun for a free attraction.
