“A great pit stop”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

It isn't so much a "park" as it is just some really cool dino statues. Its a quick fun little stop, great for kids and families. It is a great spot to stop for a restroom, a snack, or just to stretch your legs.

“Great to see”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Most beautiful view of Rapid City! Short stair climb to the top to see the dinosaurs and it's FREE. Even if you aren't into the dino thing, it is most definitely worth stopping by just before dusk to see the views of the city. We didn't get to visit the gift shop because we arrived as they were getting ready to close, but they do offer various souvenirs (mostly dino I think) and a snack bar. A must see for any dinosaur lover of any age!!

“HOT!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We went in july and it was hot as hades climbing the stairs and baking in the full sun while seeing all of the dinosaurs. The weather is not the fault of the attraction though and I will say we enjoyed the view and experience. The dinos are neat but nothing super special. There is a gift shop where you can eat and cool of which was nice. I think this would get a four star rating from me if my child was in love with dinos or if I would have went in the evening. It would be neat to see the sun set from here and the lights of the town come on.
