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.
The exhibit and activity area is geared for children ages 2 through 12, subject to weight restrictions. Please visit our Fun Activities page for details on each activity. Our activities are for children 2 and up, and are not recommended for children 1 and under, therefore, children age 1 and under are admitted free to the exhibition. For safety of all children, adults/teens ages 13 and above are not allowed on the inflatables, but can experience the dinosaur museum, participate in the maze, mini-mini-golf, panning, dino dig and table activities.
By entering our exhibit and activity area, Parents/Guardians agree to supervise, watch and assume full and all responsibility for their children in all activities. Play at your own risk. A waiver is required prior to entrance, SEE BELOW:
Activities/Inflatables vary at different locations.
Our Dinosaur Rides are an actual robotic dinosaur that have slow dinosaur lifelike movements. The maximum weight 100lb per person and maximum height is 5 feet. Be sure to read the safety rules before entering.
Our Dinosaur Zoomers and battery operated small ride on dinosaurs. Children must be capable of operating the zoomer, which is generally around the age of 4. There is a weight limit of 100 pounds to ride the zoomers.
Dinosaur Bouncers are a child's best friend, and we have many of these huge inflatables. We feature a set of bouncers for toddlers and another set for the older child. The toddler inflatables are for children ages 2 and 3. A child must be 36" tall and weigh less than 100 pounds for all other inflatables. Be sure to read the safety rules before entering. Adults are not allowed on the inflatables, except for the immediate need of a child. Please alert staff.
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. Strollers are not allowed in the Maze. There are no height and weight restrictions for the maze. Everyone can particpate.
Due to space constraints, we will be bringing our mini-mini golf. Yes, it is a really, really small course, but its still a whole lot of fun and great for developing eye hand coordination. Play as many times as you want. Everyone can participate.
Come to our dinosaur dig and see if you can find dinosaur fossils in the sand. Great experience for those up and coming paleontologists. Everyone can participate!
Panning for Fossils and Gemstomes provides an interactive activity where everyone can pan for special stones. Our sluice is filled to the brim with special stones for those that want to take home a free souvenir. If you would like to pan for REAL fossils and REAL gemstones (including Rubies & Emeralds) we have panning bags available to purchase at the register. This is a fun activity where everyone can participate!
Activities are subject to change.
