“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Brought my 7 year old grandson here. When he told his grandfather about it he said "The brochure looks more fun that it really is" The walk through was really kind of boring - my grandson got tired of me reading the signs and just wanted to be done. The replicas of the dinos are really great. The gift shop is wonderful with lots of options and great prices. Bring an umbrella with you to keep the sun off as the walkway is not shaded, there are certain shaded areas where you can sit and rest. The whole thing took us about 1 1/2 hours.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We cannot believe this place still gets so much business. The walk through it was horrible and boring and not worth your money. Save it and go fossil hunting for some real fossils with Morris Bussey.

“Nice diversion but bring your sunscreen”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

My kiddos loved walking the dinosaur path (we made a fun game out of reading the signs), but they spent more time on the playground than looking at dinosaurs. They are pretty strict about the timing on the fossil dig (it only lasts for 15 minutes) so plan to be near the front of the place right at the time they tell you for the dig. The gift shop is huge, and the prices are not outrageous - a good place to let your kids do a little shopping without getting ripped off.

“Dinosaur World”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

This is a great afternoon adventure. A lot of walking, but the walking is on well kept paved paths. This is a good way to teach your children all about the different dinosaurs that roamed the earth. There is a nice air conditioned gift shop at the end of the walk. Be sure to take plently of bottled water.
