  • While my granddaughter had fun, the cost of fun is quite expensive. We’re not talking a Disney experience, but the price is.  more »
  • This is a terrific place to bring children and entire families. It is really safe, well managed, and the staff could not be nicer. There are huge "life-size" dinosaurs everywhere, a huge splash area.....  more »
  • My first trip bringing my girls (8 and 10) was a lot of fun. There was plenty to do to keep us occupied for about 5 hours (including lunch). The climbing tower was a big hit. Be aware, you need footwear in the splash pad. It was pricey (just over $100 for my family of 4), but it was worthwhile. The cafe in the main gift shop (Cobalt Cafe) was great too. The food was good quality and not overly expensive. The girls' kid's meals for $7 included entree, drink, applesauce, a cookie, and a toy. Very impressive overall.
  • Fun place to bring the kids, well kept paths to walk on and see the dinosaurs. Saw plenty of families with strollers and wagons managing the paths without a problem. The paths offer a lot of shade for most part of the trail. The kids had the most fun in the playground and the maze. The playground had so much to offer and the kids could of spent all day just doing that. Word of advice you need to have socks on to go into the tower and also water shoes or sandals to go into the splash pad. You can’t go into the splash pad area without some sort of footwear. If you forget they do sell socks and water sandals in the gift shop. The splash pad seems good for younger kids for the older ones it’s a nice way to cool off. The volcano erupts at the hour starting from 11, you can watch it from either side of the lake, but if you miss it you’re not missing much, it’s some smoke and a spray of water, which wasn’t even red. All the kids kept waiting and asking their parents, ‘where’s the lava?”. Sorry no lava. Food prices weren’t too bad, reasonable but you can also bring your own food.
