We went the week that schools restarted so the place was pretty quiet. Because it was so hot (August), we didn't make it all the way through the long path with the life sized models but wow there were SO many of them, I never knew there were so many specific dinosaurs! The 6 and 8 year old kids really... More

Hot day, and lots of open walking.. Touristy but interesting.Good opportunity for photos. The supposedly life sized dinosaurs are amazing.

This park is fun for the little kids and their wild imaginations. Our 3 year old loves the Welcome to Dinosaur World entrance and couldn't wait to enter the park. She was a little scared at first but soon realized the Dinosaurs aren't real and relaxed. The park is a good way to spend an hour or two, but don't... More

My 11 year old son saw the sign on the highway and we pulled over not expecting much. Even the outside looked like this place would probably be nothing more than a junky gift store, but surprisingly this was a well executed educational park about dinosaurs. And yes, you enter through a large gift store. It was pretty darn hot... More

We visited with our sons who are two and four. They are really into dinosaurs so this was extra awesome for them. The entrance and exit runs through a gift shop, so be prepared to buy your kids something on the way out.... The path to see the giant statues is fun, and has tons of dinosaurs. It was VERY... More

Obviously they can't have real dinosaurs but walking around a incredibility hot path (110° July) looking at fiberglass dinosaurs that don't move or really have any information about each dino. It doesn't tell you scale or locations... The entire park is about getting you spend more. Don't buy tickets online, it is cheaper to buy them there.

I had about dismissed this attraction based on some of the reviews I found here, but I am sooo glad my girl decided she just had to go because we had a great time! I have a 4 yard old and we had just visited the Dinosaur Valley State park and seen the tracks. However, this park is much more... More

Lots of walking, but all paved and able to bring your own picnic with covered picnic tables. Educational, but fun for the kids. The panning for gems was definitely the highlight. Cracking a geode was cool but go for medium size. The large ones weren't worth the extra money.

This is a good place to take kids to learn about dinosaurs. There are alot of life size dinos alot the walking trail with a big koi pond in the middle, its very hot though so i would recommend going during cooler hours of the day. Theres a playground and museum with animatronic dinosaurs, this was pretty cool.
