My family and I were looking for something to do to pass a little time. We saw the sign for the boat ride, and decided on that. It was around $55 for 2 adults, 2 tweens, and a toddler for a little under a 30 minute tour. The decor outside was attractive and the wait was short. Once inside, the... More

This might be fun for VERY young kids who are huge dinosaur fans, but families with older children might want to give it a miss. A relatively short boat ride past cheesy, animatronic dinosaurs (all of which looked rather shabby- the ride has clearly seen better days!)

Don't waste your $$! It was cheesy and my 8 your old even thought it was bad. It was old and tattered and didn't have any kind of flow. Only gets a 1 because I can give negative numbers.

My 6 year old wanted to do this so badly. I have been on it twice before so I tried talking him out of it. He was so disappointed when it was over. The first thing he said wss "i should have picked go carts". Lesson learned I guess. Save your money

This is OK for the family especially little boys who like dinosaurs. Not really worth the money we paid for the three of us for a five minute ride.

The people that own this attraction should be ashamed of themselves for charging what they do for admission. I took my 4 year old son on this ride because he loves dinosaurs. What a big mistake. First of all, the ride is almost pitch black inside and the boat moves super slow. The dinosaurs were kind of neat, but way... More

Oh my goodness!!! This was great!!! My family loved this! My 5 year grandson was amazed! It is dark inside but lights come on to see the dinosaurs. You are on a boat but the moves slow enough so you can enjoy the ride and the dinosaurs. My family enjoyed this ride!!

Thought this would be good since both sons and daughter like dinos but it was so dark could barely see anything. Boat moves real slow. Very overpriced. Family of 5 over $ 60.00. Maybe a 10 minute ride. Save your money!

This is a tourist trap. $64 for a family of five for 9 minutes of bad animotronics. If it was $5 yeah, do it. At the price they charge it is not worth the stop along the Parkway. It is extremely slow moving.

I took my 4 year old nephew on this ride. It seemed like it would be neat from the name, however, I was wrong. At times, it was pitch black and my nephew would start trying to crawl all over me to get in the middle of the boat. At one point, I believe a flying dinosaur had a fake... More
