We took our 5 year old son based on the positive reviews I read and son’s interest in dinosaurs. I found the attraction underwhelming and the 5 year old was frightened by an unexpected noise in the church. He liked putting his hand through an...More

Mark Cline, the artist behind the park sculptures that follow a wonderfully weird storyline involving Civil War soldiers and dinosaurs, is brilliant! Come with a sense of humor and imagination, and you won't be disappointed. The tour takes you through a small wild west-like town...More

Dinosaur Kingdom II is best visited by people whom love the weird and unusual. You also need a sense of humor and a child-like appreciation.. If this place doesn't make you smile and laugh, there's no hope for you. Plus we met the creator himself—Mark...More

Dinosaur Kingdom II defies description. It must be experienced to be believed. Take a camera and a healthy sense of humor. Not to be missed: the ten minute Ken Burns mockumentary explaining the battle of "Saur Hill." (I'm a history buff. I went with a...More

I can't tell you how much fun this was! I also can't tell you my age... but my BF is 82. Let's just say we were practically "there." And Professor Cline got it all right. Terror, excitement, mechanicle arms, slime monsters. Totally worth the illegal...More

This park is a lot of fun, if you can wrap your mind around dinosaurs helping the Confederates fight the civil war. It's a fun place, albeit, not very realistic, but a lot of fun. You might even meet the T-Rex that wrote this graphic...More
