“...great place...”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

...absolutely adored it! The museum is informative. When you first enter the museum, you are faced with a T-Rex and a Stegasaurus and her 2 babies - all robots. The grand kids loved it!!!...

Once you get outside, you walk thru a park with cement dinosaurs - thru paths and hidden trails --- I loved it, and so did the kids - well worth the money...

Bring a picnic lunch if you want to spend the day here - there are also Bar-B-Ques to use.

.... it can take a day or a couple of hours..... GREAT!!

“Haunted Night at the Museum”
Reviewed 4 August 2009

Very awesome experience! I loved how it starts as a tour in the museum. The lights are dimmed, creating an eerie atmosphere. You watch workers cleaning real bones and fossils found. The tour guide then takes you around to various areas where they talk about different monsters. Then you go outside and while it then becomes more like a typical haunted forest, it is anything but. Very realistic features and ideas. At times, really scary! I would recommend this to anyone interested in something different.

“Oh MY GOSH”
Reviewed 12 July 2009

We loved this. Our 8 year old grandson was soooooooooooo excited. The park is wonderful and priced great. Small gift shop was great, and the museum facinating, we bought a Geode and had them cut it in two.

“kids absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed 30 June 2009

We were here with 3 kids, 19, 10 & 6. All of them loved Eccles dinosaur park! It was nice that they had some fossils to see before seeing the reproductions. It was nice to walk the 6 acre park with the kids. Something "lurking" around every corner. Our 6 year old did get a little scared at one point in a darker jungle area but not bad.
