  • Unique experience for kids! A leisurely stroll through a paved, level path and about 20 different varieties of dinosaurs. The sound track of fierce roars scared my 2yo and 4yo (even though 4yo had been there before). Last segment of walk is through a short exhibit (20 ft?) with animatronic predators eating a stegosaurus and more fierce roars... had to carry both kids through. Finishes in a cute shop with huge selection of dinosaurs toys, books, puzzles and apparel. Has photo booth in the shop that ate our money with no pictures but management swiftly helped us with hassle free refund. Nice, covered playground outside that is included in the admission. A great place to spend an hour or two with kids! Adjacent to a separate amusement park with go karts, other amusements and a restaurant. Plentiful parking.
  • We took our 2 grandchildren, both age 2, and had an amazing time. It takes just long enough keep their attention. The gift shop is awesome. There's a huge 2-Rex skeleton and lots of other dinosaurs to take pictures with. The end of the trail is the best part...
