Bulbous head dinosaur.

Rex the Dinosaur

Field review by the editors.

Leavenworth, Kansas

A 25-foot-tall, bulbous-headed, lime green T-rex made of cement stands outside a bowling alley, even though its arms are too spindly for effective bowling. The site was formerly occupied by Theel Kiddieland (1948-1998), an amusement park offshoot of Theel Manufacturing, a Leavenworth company that built carnival rides. The dinosaur, which was built in 1977, has always been called "Rex." The bowling alley was built in 2002, but its owners decided to keep Rex around.
