Really enjoyed this stop! It's free and a great place for kids to visit. There are many dinosaurs the kids can climb on. This place also has a gift shop/small restaurant.

There are amazing views from the top of the Dinosaur. I would definitely recommend eating some food here. We got hot dogs for 99 cents and a big ice cream cone for less then $2! The dinosaurs aren't much to look at, but it was...More

The park is a lot of fun for small children, get to climb on the dinosaurs. Los of stairs to burn off their energy. Gift shop is average but I recommend taking skyline drive up. Fantastic drive up hills and curves.

Went up here to see the view over rapid city at dusk. The dinosaurs are old and they have been patched. They are a piece of natural history of how we thought they looked in the Teun of the century. They are fun to have...More

My 4 year old loves dinosaurs. This place has full size dinosaurs to look at, touch, and take pictures of. This is a no brainer if your littles love dinos. No it is not the best attraction ever...unless you are 4 and love dinosaurs.

We love to pick up coffee and donuts on our way for an early morning visit to the park. Weekday mornings are the best. You can enjoy the cooler summer weather all while watching the hustle and bustle of the city below.

Not anything like we expected. It is literally 5-6 run down statues at the top of some steps. Perhaps we should have read more reviews but I wouldn't go out of your way to see it. At least it was free!

Our family take a quick stop at this road side museum. It was cute and my dino-loving boys thought it was fabulous. There was a mirror room and miniature golf included. I am not sure the museum is worth the price, as it is only...More

Quick 15 minute walk. Great views of Rapid City and would recommend coming in from the south, which is a scenic 2-3 mile drive along the ridge that overlooks both sides. Gift shop was good. Good, short add-on to your trip

Yes, but be aware that if your pooch has any cranky joints, all those steps are going to be hard on her.

That steep winding road everyone is mentioning also really doesn't have a shoulder. I have walked it before, but you need to be careful. The steep turns mean cars can't always see you coming.
