The roadside ancient lizards catch the attention of all, especially kids. They see it and demand a stop. It is fun for young and old and not hard to imagine being here in the desert 65 million years ago and not be shocked by the...More

If you are on a long car trip with the kiddies this is a great stop! Get out and stretch for awhile as the kids roam. Most things look fairly new and redone. There is an area to walk through and some of the Dinos...More

I wanted to go into the dinosaur's mouth, but could not fathom giving those people even one cent of my money.
