Dino urinals. Men's Room Mural at Dinosaur World

My wife and I visited this attraction hoping to find something to photograph that hadn't been before. Not so easy! After several hours of walking around, we decided to give up and began heading back. Before exiting, I went to use the men's room. When I came back, I had a gleeful look on my face. "What did you see?" my wife asked. "The picture! We got it!"

Dinosaur World

The park has added a whole new playground area, an indoor museum with animatronic dinosaurs at the end, a new gem finding attraction where you sift sand in water for gemstones, and it's about to open a mammoth exhibit area where the old playground was.

Gemstone mining is fairly common, but it's hard to ever tire of robot dinosaurs.

Lunch. Dinosaur World

Not only entertaining but educational. The museum has a nice display of fossils. Take the forest trail and see dinosaurs peeking out of the shrubbery at the tourists at every turn. Very campy, and the kids got a nice walk.

T-Rex Dinosaur sign. Dinosaur World

Your description is accurate. We visited on a rainy June afternoon and had a really great time. The rain added a particularly "Jurassic" feel to the place. They sold us ponchos for $3 each; these kept the rain off and came in very handy on the rest of our trip. The strangest thing about the rain was that people were hiding under the dinosaurs to stay dry. Coming around the corner to see a nice Hispanic family hiding between the legs of a life size fiberglass T-Rex is not an experience one has every day. The new fossil excavation experience was great fun, and it is roofed over. There were a lot more dinosaurs in the park than I had thought there would be, easily over two dozen, and the park was very well laid out and clean and well maintained. It was very kid friendly, and a nice family adventure.
