Education is so important and that is our primary objective, but we also need to have fun! So we have designed our exhibition to not only educate but entertain your children with an array of dinosaur themed activities. There is fun for the entire family.
The activities and panning for what is pre-stocked in the sluice is included in your ticket (Face Painting, Real Gemstone and Fossil Bags, and Dinosaur Photo Op are extra). When you arrive at the ticket counter, every child ticket purchase will receive one of our green dinosaur bags with our very own newspaper, THE DINOSAUR TIMES which will explain all the activities, including how you can win a free dinosaur souvenir, pan for colored rock and maybe even find a fossilized shark tooth. Our newspaper is filled with games, puzzles and dinosaur facts too! It's a perfect take home souvenir to add to your scrap book.
These following activities are not recommended for children 1 and under, therefore they are admitted free to the exhibition. Parents/Guardians maintain full and all responsibility for their children in all activities. Play at your own risk.

We would love to have a corn maze, but pretty hard to transport and what does that have to do with dinosaurs? So we settled on a Dinosaur Themed Maze, and we think that was the right decision. See who in your family can find there way out first.
Due to space constrictions at the Los Cerritos Center, we will be bringing our mini-mini golf. Yes, it is a really small course, but still a whole lot of fun. Every child ticket purchased will receive a dino score card and pencil. You can find them in the green bag that is free with every child ticket purchase.
