Visitor Tips and News About Dinosaur Land
We stopped by before Dinosaur Land opened and it was worth it just to see the sign and the statues outside. Great photo op and place to stretch your legs. It would definitely be worth your time to see the whole park. Thanks so much for keeping this great piece of Americana open![Kristen Gilbert, 06/03/2013]
Dinosaur Land is fun for all! A free book is provided with paid admission.[Betsie, 07/01/2012]
There are photo ops aplenty hidden back along the trails and among the trees...but no one should exit without sitting in King Kong's palm.
Admission to Dinosaur Land is $4 for kids, $5 for adults for spring 2012. Very cute/fun. Worth the stop. Creative![Brooke, 05/28/2012]
The thrill of Dinosaur Land has proven to be quite romantic. When I was a kid I loved the many creatures that "live" there, so as a young adult it was a no-brainer to bring my boyfriend back for the Dinosaur Land experience. As we ran around the park, there were many photo ops where Ben could save me from the brutal beasts. The park has an ageless effect on its visitors, where kids and adults become equals in the attempts to bring their newfound creatures to life. I have many fond memories there, but what will always stay with me is my time with King Kong. The ape of all apes was no match for Ben, but in the end we made a truce, and the resulting picture can be found in RoadsideAmerica.com's Dinosaur Land story.
I would like to thank Dinosaur Land for bringing America a piece of '60s childhood wonder, that "children" of all generations can enjoy.[Joy Kiefer, 08/19/2008]
