We took the grand kids to this great attraction. There were so many realistic dinosaurs I couldn't even guess the amount. There were many events for the kids, some free and some for a fee. We could have spent an entire day there. It was fabulous!

My kids love this attraction. You walk along long paths through tons of life size dinosaurs. There is also a indoor museum with fossils. They have a fantastic gift shop with good prices. Always a winner.

My 9-year-old and I love dinosaurs so we were excited to visit this attraction. We were disappointed. There are life-sized dinosaur replicas all around the path with a plaque explaining the dinosaur. All you can do is look from behind the rope. There is a T-rex head the children can put their heads through as if they are being eaten... More

Touristy. The shop had plenty of stuff to buy and was well presented. We did not take the tour as I thought it was too expensive for me to go in. I would have let my kids go if they could have gone without me. Probably very educational. You would just have to go in and judge for yourself before... More

This is a really cool place to bring the kids. Especially if they like dinosaurs. My 2 yr old loves it here.

Although it was hot in the July sun, it was cool to see all the dinosaurs. They are well placed and I think my husband and I enjoyed it even more than the 2 grandchildren we brought with us. The kids really enjoyed the fossils they got to "dig" for and I appreciated that it was handicap friendly for my... More

Our 3, 5, and 7 yr old grand kids loved the 30 min walk through 150 fake dinosaurs. Museum is small but interesting. It was so hot outside, and I don't think kids over 8 yrs or so would find this interesting. They have a fossil dig. The gift shop actually has .50 and .1.50 items! They also let you... More

This is a nice place to go for a few hours. The gem mining was fun too. Remember to bring a lunch because there are only vending machines with drinks. Better for families with small children.

Neat walk thru with life size dinosaurs. Seems good for all ages. My husband and I did this to kill a couple hours and it was nice.

We enjoyed the walk, nice paved trail. Grandkids really liked the fossil dig and panning their 5 lb. bag of dirt to find gems, they had a blast. A bit pricey though, but worth it.
