Saturday Snapshot- Dinosaurs!

Our local amusement park added a new attraction this year full of life size dinosaurs some of which will move and roar.  Scattered throughout the park are samples to entice you to come and spend some extra money to see them all.

We told our kids that this was going to be a once a summer thing and picked an evening to go over to only do the dinosaurs exhibit.  This is our second summer with season passes so we go at least once a week to either ride the rides or go to the water park.

Some people were rushing from one dino to the next, but we tried to get them to take their time and read the signs and try out the buttons since this was the whole reason we were there.

Each dinosaur had a label and some cool facts listed out about it.

At the end of the loop they had a sand pit with pretend fossils for kids to play in.  Our kids spent quite a while there but again, as this was all that was on our agenda for the day we didn't rush them.

It was hard to get some of the huge dinosaurs in one picture, but the smaller ones were no problem.

It was a fun hour or two.  I just wish you didn't have to pay an extra fee to see it.

  1. That looks like such a fun way to spend time with the kids! There was an exhibit like that at our zoo one year and my youngest was still little enough to be intimidated by them. It was quite cute.

  3. The extra fee is so annoying. Our local park opened another park next door and you have to pay for both instead of paying for one and getting into both. Annoys me! Looks like fun, though!
