I've heard it said that the structure has been extensively repaired about 10 years ago because the original (built in the 1950s?) had been around for a long time.

It's a big pink T-Rex that you can't miss. I have no idea why it get's it's own area. You drive past it and you say "Oh, there's a big pink dinosaur.

Another Roadside Attraction consisting of a large pink dinosaur to get you to stop. Drive by, smile if you must, but no reason to stop.

Large pink dinosaur with a goofy smile and large eyelashes - don't bother stopping. Just glance at it as you drive by.

It's a big, pink, dinosaur! What more can I say! Although, from what little I know about dinosaurs; it's not a T-Rex! I think it's a Brontosaurus! Anyway: it's been a part of Vernal for years, and the little kids will love it! And it's really kind of cool!
