Cabazon Dinosaurs

It's free to view Dinny and the Tyrannosaurus. The only fee is if you decide you want to go through the newly added Dinosaur walk-through.

Cabazon Dinosaurs

Cute. They're about as accurate as the Flintstones, but the kids will love it. Save your money, though; just look from outside and take pictures.

Dinosaurs newly painted, but the Pee-Wee restaurant has been demolished... Bummer!

The Cabazon Dinosaurs still stand in 2016. This is where part of Pee Wee's Big Adventure was filmed.
