Good stop for Grandkids, they will never forget it.

It is a walk outside and the likds can literally run around. Pictures are a must. Gasoline is less expensive in that area. Numerous places to eat can be seen along the freeway.

If anyone in your party is into dinosaurs this is a must do stop not far from Palm Springs. The scale of the outside models is huge and our Stanley would not go near them at first. The shop is well stocked with dino related souvenirs . Close to Cabazon Mall so you can also have your shopping fix -... More

Watch for it or, even with a huge dinosaur in the front, you might miss it. Pull into the parking lot and check it out and if you are so incline, have lunch under the small Dino. We took the museum tour which is under $20. There is not much to really see...just lots of dinosaurs. Best part is climbing... More

I have seen this in so many movies and we were so close that we had to stop and see it. But I would not go out of my way to stop here. I don't think anything has been updated since the 60's.

This is a great spot to take small children, especially if you have been driving hours on interstate 10. They have activities for a fee or you can walk up to the 2 life sized dinosaurs for free. There is a Burger King next door for food and restrooms.

Sadly we didn't have time to visit the main attractions and just looked around the two gigantic beasts that tower over the roadside but how much fun is this. A great photo opportunity at the very least but I would definitely recommend a trip if you are anywhere near. Where else but American do you get this kind of crazy.... More

We stopped at the dinosaurs on the way out of town on a road trip, but decided not to pay the admission to go inside. The price was a little steep for what it was, but the 2 huge dinosaurs in the parking lot are totally free to enjoy. They are pretty weathered and worn but still fun to look... More

Old roadside attraction. Good for a quick stop and photo if you desire. A weird thing that kids will remember and takes only a few min. The restaurant is shuttered and the dinos could use a respray. Food trucks parked there if you want to eat. Probably only on busy weekends or events.

It was fun, the kids enjoyed it but we were expecting it to have more things. The fossil find was fun and the gift shop was cool. There was really only 3 activities and they were all fun but they were quite short . I would recommend you planning your trip for about 30 to 60 minutes.

A childhood favorite! Pee Wee's Big Adventure filmed several scenes around the dinosaurs in the 1985. Also featured in the opening credits of the movie National Lampoon's Vacation,1983. Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World 1985. etc. The creation of Claude K Bell's Dinosaur's began in the 1960's as a attraction to his Wheel Inn Restaurant* which... More
