It's really an attraction that you go because you went to it when you were a kid. And it did one thing: made me memorize what the word "petrified" means. The creatures aren't fossils. They are made of concrete. Honest! Only reason to go is...More

It was rainy. We were grumpy. The children needed to go somewhere that engaged them but did not tire them out. Bingo! Sweet little attraction that has been around since my husband was a child. Enough fascinating "stuff" to keep my little scientist happy, and...More

A good place for younger kids because there are large, colorful, talking dinosaurs that intrigued the little ones. The older boys thought it was OK but it wasn't their favorite activity.
