Dinosaur Land.

Dinosaur Land

Classic 1963 dinosaur park featuring over two dozen colorfully-painted, old-style brutes -- including a prehistoric crawl-in shark and a photo-op King Kong. Photo-worthy roadside dinos and dino-mouth entrance.

Dino Jaws of Dinosaur Land

Visitors entering this vintage dinosaur park first have to navigate the toothy chompers of a giant prehistoric carnivore.

What an amazing place! Step back in time to a classic roadside attraction that is owned and operated by the original family. If you're anywhere nearby, this is one of those treasures we must keep alive. We've lost way too many places. Reasonable price and the family who run it are super nice!

It is $8.00 for adults. Great stop. There are a number of food stops nearby too, so you can get a good break in.

Life-size (and larger) models of dinosaurs (and other animals, built in varying states of accuracy) bask, battle, and raise their broods behind the gift shop at this roadside treasure! See from the roadside the epic battle between shark, octopus, saguaro cactus, dinosaur, and saber toothed tiger! Explore the park beyond, to witness fierce battles, sweet babies, and at least one insect of unusual size. Also, King Kong is there.

Always a compelling, classic roadside stop for us! The trees grow bigger, the dinosaurs stay the same.
