  • I had no idea what to expect before checking this place out. I only knew of its existence from having read about the legal issues a while back. Figured I'd take my two year olds and give it a shot. And wow! I might have had more fun than they did! I hate that the county has given you such a hard time, I can tell you've really put your heart and soul into this project. I hope other visitors can see this too and keep the donations coming. We easily spent a couple hours here and although my sons aren't old enough to read the names and information at each dinosaur, they still loved looking at everything and the little play area. Thank you for providing this attraction to our area, especially while only running on donations. My personal favorite was the little popcorn fight right at the very end. Some notes for any first-time visitors: strollers are completely doable if you're reasonably able-bodied (at least a single, not sure if a side by side could fit on some of the wooden paths) but some places are quite steep or very bumpy from large buried rocks or exposed tree roots. Most of the displays and signs are within reach from the trail so be mindful of letting your children grab and touch so it will continue to be around for everyone to enjoy. There are several little interactive displays and learning activities for younger children, there's more to this place than just statues of dinosaurs!
  • Awesome experience! My brother took me up here knowing I have a thing for Jurassic Park. My expectations were exceeded! Very cool, worth the time and definitely worth donating. Buy something from the gift shop! Picture opportunities galore! You can see the passion and dedication the owner put into each creature. I liked the exhibit showing how they are made. I will be visiting again next time I am in town!
