We spent a solid two hours here and the only reason we didn't stay longer was the rain. But my boys and I powered through it and saw all the dinos on the walking path, which was so much fun, dug for fossils, collected gemstones, screamed in fear and delight at the animatronic dinosaurs and spent way too much money...

Had fun, would not want it to be any longer just too hot... Didn't see any animatronics they had advertised... That was kind of disappointing..... Overall kind of expensive for an hour walk but if you have not seen it already it's something to check out.

My only suggestion is to not go during the middle of a hot summer day. Other than that, really well done and entire family enjoyed the half mile walk to find dinosaur statues and the indoor museum.

Neat place to go visit, but go early in the day! Their museum is very cool with fossils and animated dinosaurs my girls loved!

The only tip I can truly give, is avoid it in the afternoon/mid-summer... it was sooooo hot. We still made the whole lap (at around 105 degrees) and checked out the museum and their cool little store. The geo-cracker was cool and you collected some pretty cool gems at the dig site... This is a great family attraction imho.

Now this place is cool for kids and adults!!! It's a lot of walking. But the kids was having so much fun they never complained! It had a lot of shade as you walk so it's not that bad! They also have a kid park inside. This is a must do!!!!! 😍

Our 4 year old had a blast here, he is very into dinosaurs and he loved this trip. The statues outside are cool. The animantronics were a work in process. The fossil dig was a plus too. Bring water and snacks. There isn't food availble for purchase. There is a nice picnic area and playground but it was far too... More

Took my grandkids to this park and they had a rip roaring blast. The Dinosaurs look very real and the park is maintained exceptionally well. My granddaughter dug for fossils and enjoyed that too. On a hot day make sure you take water for the 1/2 mile long trail. Be sure to look around the museum and gift shop. You... More

It is 1/2 mile loop. Lopts of sitting along the way and shade, but it was still just too hot for us. We found ourselves just getting thru it rather than enjoying it. Totally suggest doing this in MUCH cooler temps. There's a map to track where you are and what you are seeing. Lay out is impressive. We just... More

This place really exceeded my expectations. I thought it would be some run down tourist attraction, but it was actually very nice. It was well kept, had a great gift shop with plenty of things to look at and purchase. Everyone was super nice and inviting. They do not serve food but you can bring in a lunch if you... More
