As a rite of passage for visiting Vernal, UT it is required that you take a picture with the giant pink dinosaur. She's pretty cute, after all. There is plenty of room to pull off and a nice area where your kids can stand for the picture. She's on the east end of town, towards Dinosaur National Monument. There is... More

T-Rex is a big pink welcome to Vernal. This makes you sit up and take notice of a town that has huge planters and hanging baskets of the most beautiful shades of pink flowers all over the town. I applaud the folks there for their efforts and I enjoyed our drive through this beautiful town.

It makes for a great picture and great memories not much else there. You get out take a picture and then you leave but it is an amazing pink Dino.

This is really just a statue with beautiful flower pots at the edge of town. We have gathered the kids at this sight every year we have visited to have a picture taken. We only visit every couple of years so this is kid of a nice way to see the differences. The kids like to see it and watch... More

There are cool retro dino statues all over the place in Vernal. Kitchy and fun. But it's not really an attraction. Take a photo and go on your way to see the real dino bones in the park!

Cute large dinosaur statue on the outskirts of Vernal welcoming all to the town. Beautiful potted flowers lining main street really make the town pleasant to visit. Clean wide mainstream with many restaurants and shops.

It is exactly what it says it is - a big pink dinosaur welcoming you to town. You can't miss it entering or leaving Vernal on the East side of town. Kids love it.

We had to stop and get our picture taken! You can't miss it and if you are in Vernal you shouldn't miss it. My girls loved it!
