This is a quaint... cute place to see with your kids. It is located in a nice forested area that really does make you feel as if you just stepped back... WAY BACK in time. The dinosaurs have recently been updated and they look quite...More

Driving along the road en route north we spotted this and dropped by on spec. Well worth it. Yes, I know the dinosaurs are plastic (or cement?) but they are very well set out in a forest setting with vegetation that is reasonably thoughtfully prehistoric...More

SILLY place but fun to see. A bit pricey for just a quick look but fun spot to stop at if you have kids.

While it is a little pricey for a family to get in, this is obviously a place that is lovingly cared for by the owners. It is well-manicured, clean, and a fun diversion. We spent 20 minutes here and laughed and took pictures.

Once you pay they direct their attention to the children. Each were given a map of the park and told some good information and they became our guides. It was adorable and they were so excited. The park is beautifully kept up and dinosaurs are...More
