We did enjoy seeing the dinosaurs as it brought the child out in us. It is a shame that the exhibits could all use a little bit of a paint touch up, but otherwise it was a fun place. The views were spectacular from up there. It is a little off the beaten path and we did have to ask directions before we went but we found it with no problem. The gift shop was meant to be open through October but it was closed when we visited in October during open hours so cannot say what they may or may not have had.

You can see the largest dinosaur from just about anywhere in town, standing way up on on the hill. All week we said we were going up there, and we finally did. Beautiful views of the city, especially at night. There are seven dinosaurs, and the kids really enjoyed climbing all over them. The gift shop was already closed for the season, so I cannot comment on it. But pay a visit to the park and have some fun!

We stumbled upon this place and we're glad we did. Beautiful views of the city from the hilltop. The park was built in 1936 and is a historic park. The kids enjoyed the giant dinosaurs.

Yes it's just cement dinosaurs built a long time ago, but my God my children loved it. The view from up there is pretty cool as well and so it's free. The little gift shop in the parking lot is fantastic. Actually the best find for buying souvenirs in the entire town. The gals running the shop in there are super friendly and I felt good shopping at a location that give back to the community

The kids loved this. It is small, with only a few dinosaurs, but it is free. It is worth the drive up to see it if you are in Rapid City.

Visited because it sounded fun. Lots of stairs so a stroller or wheelchair wouldn’t work here. Great city views from the top. Kids would like it but be careful with all of the ledges and stairs.

The dinosaurs are a little dated and weathered, but we still enjoyed them. The views are wonderful. There's a little gift shop that has a nice selection of items and a small grill with some very inexpensive hot dogs, which people really seemed to be enjoying, but it was too early for lunch for us. There are quite a few steps, but the views are great. The drive up and then down the other side was really nice, well worth the trip up for itself for the lovely views all the way up and all the way down the other side.

If you have little ones bring them here. My daughter loved these. When it came time to leave she didnt want to leave them.

Dinosaur park was recommended by a friend who still remembers her visit there as a kid. What a step back in time ! It was a nice stop with incredible views of Rapid City and beyond. Lots of steps, so not great if you have bad knees. The kids that were there were having fun and were able to run around. Worth a stop. Plus, they have ice cream at the gift shop!

Fun to see the dinosaurs and good place for photos. There are lots of steps but great view on every level.
