A little dated? Yeah, maybe. Parts a little in need of reburbishing, Yeah, maybe, but really cool and lots of fun and as a Historian and well over 50 years old, a great old roadside attraction still in business! You shouldn't miss it!

I remember going to Dinosaur Land as a child. I have taken my grandchildren there and it was a lot of fun for all ages. Lots of shade for a hot day
