Dinosaur Land

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.

$6.00 per person. Nice shop. Fun randomness.

Dinosaur Land

Even though it's outside, you enter and exit through the gift shop, so there are no dogs allowed. You can see five or six dinosaurs through the chain link fence if you don't have time to take in all its glory.

This place was amazing. RA has it right about the old ones being the best ones. Some of them look like they came straight out of the stop-motion movies. I'm a high school teacher, and my first thought was, "Someone needs to have their prom here."

Folks in the gift shop were extremely kind. Don't miss out on the Dinosaur Land learning book (marked down to .25 from .75). It has pictures of the dinos in the park as it once looked. The sloth is the best, hands down.
