This place is definitely geared toward families with kids, but I went with my boyfriend and I loved it! We did the Dino Walk and went through the little museum. We spent about an hour there and were never bored. I loved the replicas and there were signs that gave a little history about the dinosaur. Well worth the money!

The main attraction is the walk through the woods where various dinosaurs are displayed true to size. Though not truly detailed, they are close enough and numerous enough that it soon doesn't matter. The real gem is the way in which they are marvelously staged throughout the woods. Each grouping has a plaque describing the animal. Our six year old... More

I visited here when I was a kid and took my children this year. They loved it and my husband and I had almost as much fun as the kids did. It was as much fun as I remember and you learn a lot about all sorts of dinosaurs

Was there for about 2 1/2hrs. Kids enjoyed, very educational too! Had a gift shop, museum, gem mine, fossil dig, movie, and lots of life size dinosaurs and signs about each one.

This place has a way of luring you in before you even pull into the attraction. There is a T-REX on the interstate as well as out front along with a couple of others. Great photo ops and learning about dino's/

This was a great attraction in my opinion. We stopped here with my mother and 3 children (ages, 2, 5 and 8). There was something for all ages - depending on interest level. I think all younger children (5 and under) would enjoy the dinosaur playground as well as the fossil dig and bone yard. My 8 year old enjoyed... More

This place is probably awesome for toddlers, but not that great for anyone over the age of 6. The fossil dig was ok, but you have to wait in line for someone to tell you what you found. Then, you only get to keep 3 of the fossils. (Hardly compensation for what you have to pay to get in!).

My kids LOVED the playground and LOVED that we could picnic with the dinos. We saw the TRex from the road all week and they loved when we stopped!

All in all wasnt bad. Price was moderately high for what they have to offer, but not regretfully high. I have an 8 and 5 yo and they enjoyed the Dino walk and the Fossil dig. Park was clean and staff was super nice.
