Dinos come to life!

A lot of fun for a young family. The dinosaurs look great and there are lots of paleontological and current ecological information available. There is small museum and mini-golf... read more

We got there shortly after 10 am on a Sunday. I expected it to already be pretty busy, but there were only a few other families there when we arrived (it definitely started to fill up afterwards though). The cost is actually quite reasonable, if you can snag some of their deals and discounts. For a family of 4, admission... More

Had fun checking out the animatronic dinosaur. Lots of informative plaques along the trails. Would suggest it for people who's kids are at least in kindergarten. The mini golf was fun too!

So how did two adults wind up at this "kid attraction"? One of us wanted to go to K-Days this year, and we found out that the Edmonton Attractions Pass is a great option for getting more for your money. (As of the date of this review, a 4-attraction "U-Pick Pass" is $35 plus GST for an adult, making it... More

Well thought out, great walking paths and the dinosaurs were surprising to everyone. The kids loved it and had a chance to read about them and decide which was everyone's favourite. Some of them took a few minutes to move but worth the wait. Gift shop was very reasonable as well as the snack bar.

We went by early in the morning and it was ok. Actually anti-climatic after our visit to the Tyrell Museum at Drumheller. Got our boys (10 & 13) to do the scavenger hunt to keep them interested. We did stay for the whole morning, brought our own lunch to eat in the picnic area. However, overall, it's more for the... More

We had a wonderful day walking through the park. There was a lot to see and lots of informative boards to read. The weather was beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. I found it was easy to find and ample parking. The whole park was very clean, plenty of washrooms. I would definitely recommend this especially for the younger... More

Our grand-daughter, daughter and the two of us loved seeing the animitronic recreation of dinosaurs with movement and sounds. Two trails to explore we saw many young children through teens enjoying the interaction. At the front of the park there is a section to bring your own picnic lunch as well as a playground with sand, dinosaur designed eggs with... More

Interesting walk for families, my son loved it as he is very into dinosaurs. Was a little worried the dinosaurs would scare him when they made noises, but he actually thought it was very cool (he's 3). Make sure you bring bug spray as the mosquitos tend to come out in droves there. Overall nice little afternoon trip.

So our daughter was on the hunt for T-rex and she found him and a load of other dinosaurs. She was exicted for the whole tour and it got more exciting with the animations of most of the dinos. We will definitly be going again. It was affordable. But would recommend that you pack your own lunch as there isnt... More
