Must admit, I did not climb the steps for the view, but if we had had children, up we would have gone.

For 3 bucks you can go up and check out the view from the giant t-rex. Very simple but a beautiful view of the land layout. Would recommend to anyone. Not wheel chair friendly of course and several flights of stairs. Small gift shop below and bathrooms. Proceeds benefit the local community.

We drove by this T-Rex while visiting Drumheller in -25 degree weather. He had icicles dangling from his gnarly teeth. It's an awesome town mascot!

Go here with few expectations and good spirits. The largest dinosaur in the world provides a great photo opportunity, from both outside and inside. In the "mouth", you get a great view of the Red Deer River valley....and a chance to pretend you're about to become a 65 million year old snack! The customer service in the info centre was... More

Not sure what the deal is here. So it is a big dinosaur statue standing in the middle of a playground next to a community centre. Not worth the press. Pass on it and go down the road 10 minutes or so and see real dinsaur bones at the terrific Royal Tyrrel Museum.

You can't miss this largest dinosaur...we stopped just to take pics and see the gift shop. You can pay to go up into his mouth, but that wasn't our thing...the town is tacky (think Myrtle Beach without the beach) but looked like fun for families with kids that wanted to hang around on a budget.

Thank you for stopping in to visit The Worlds Largest Dinosaur. The gift shop is also connected to our Visitor Information where we can send you to Drumhellers greatest attractions. Unfortunately during the winter hours, alot of our main attractions are closed for the season so you're limited to our Royal Tyrrell Museum, Worlds largest Dinosaur and our outdoor attractions....

We stopped just because we were passing through and it captured our interest. It's a big dinosaur you can climb and look out it's mouth for $2. Inside is a gift shop. Nothing too special but children loved it.

Not sure the PR types in Drum went around to measure model dinosaurs globally, but this critter certainly is big. As my headline says, it is impressive to look at, but not for me at my tender age, the climbing of the stairs. If you climb to the top of the stairs inside the Ds belly, you come to a... More

I have been to Drumheller countless times but I have never climbed the giant T-Rex before. We decided to climb it today with our two young children. The kids had fun climbing the stairs (all indoor) and throwing a coin into the "wishing well" at the top. The view from the top is stunning! Well worth the small cost requested... More
