“Fun and Educational!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We went with our grandson to visit Dinosaur Quest this week.
We had hours of fun and education.
More dinosaur skeletons and videos than we could ever learn.
Then we had a great time with miniature gold.
It was fun.
The staff was super. We will be back.

Blessings, Greg S

“No-pressure fun”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

If you have someone special in your life who love dinosaurs, Dinosaur-Quest is a great place to visit! My young son looves to go here, play a round of mini-golf, look at the awesome bones, watch the interesting video, visit with the paleontologist and "dig up" fossils. It is a no-pressure way to spend a day inside, especially on hot or rainy days. We will be going back again, for sure!

“Amazing way to learn without realizing you're learning!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

My 3yr old daughter loves dinosaurs, so while on the Riverwalk this was a must-have stop. I figured it would be a bunch of dusty old bones and boring audio recordings, but she would be happy because, "Hey, dinosaurs" I have never been more happy to be wrong! The first thing we see is a giant t-rex (the favorite in our house) and then we find out we get to play mini golf throughout the exhibit. And not just any regular old mini golf, but blacklight mini golf. Even more awesome was the dinosaur expert with real bones willing to stand there patientlyfor 30+ minutes answering questions from my 3 year old. The exhibits were great without all the boring and the educational audio and video along the way was great. As for the dusty old dino bones I expected: if they were dusty, I never noticed because I was too busy having a great time and learning new things about dinosaurs.

“Great place for a family!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This is the place to go for anyone who is interested in learning about dinosaurs. The staff is friendly and very helpful. My daughters especially loved watching the dinosaur movies. The cost was affordable for us. We are looking forward to visiting again and will recommend Dinosaur Quest to others.

“Dinosaurs & Mini Golf”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Tons of fun. We took our three grandsons-ages 4, 6, and 9 and they had a great time. They were all entranced by the dinosaur exhibits and also had a great time playing black light mini golf. Definitely a place we will visit again and recommend to others.
