The grand-kids, were fascinated. They panned for rocks, dug for fossils, played in the play grounds and thoroughly enjoyed the dinosaur figures.

Went with my 12 year old son who is still very much interested in dinosaurs. He had a blast, although I would point out that I think this place is most appropriate for the younger kids (ages 5 to 10), as well as any dinosaur...More
