Fun stop for the family to get out and stretch our legs. New additions were obvious, and we could hear more construction happening.

The owner is lovely! We found him in the shop and he took us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the carnival!

Backyard Terrors and Dinosaur Park

Park with life-size dinosaurs that is open year-round. No admission fee, but donations are greatly appreciated. The setting is on a wooded lot with pathways and dinosaurs lurking behind every turn. The dinosaurs are not plastic or paper mache, but almost real, lifelike skin. I thought this would a hokey place to visit, but I was surprised! My 25-year-old daughter and I went there as a lark, but we were greatly surprised how entertaining this was.
