A Jurassic Park

We decided to get out of the house and remind ourselves of a time before COVID-19. A time before the politics of our government’s leaders made us want to hide under a rock. A time before humanity made a mess of things. We decided to go to the world of dinosaurs or more appropriately Dinosaur World.

The theme park doesn’t provide its thrills with rides but with a waking trail, “fossil dig”, museum, and game show; all dinosaur themed. You will find plant species that date from the time of the dinosaurs and well as native species with easily readable plaques that identify them and tell you about their attributes. You’ll also find plenty of shade covered places to sit and picnic, and remember to bring your own lunch because they don’t sell food on site.

The park is populated by 150 life-sized dinosaur sculptures set in a jungle setting giving you a sense of walking through a zoo in the Jurassic age. We really enjoyed our departure from our usual pandemic routine. The chance to go for a shady walk surrounded by dinos was exactly what we needed. The museum was pretty good too. The collection of fossils was one of the best we’ve seen at a private museum.

The park does have some features closed and a covid policy. We’ll place it right here for you to take a look at.


10/01/20 UPDATE: The Dino Walk, the indoor museum, and the Dino Gem Excavation are open. At this time, we have determined that the safest option for all of our guests and employees is to keep our playgrounds and other hands-on activities closed. Masks are required to enter any of our indoor facilities. 

Also, remember safety first.


About No Kids, Will Travel

In the eyes of their friends and family, Amanda and Zeke are a young jet setting couple without any real responsibility. In real life, the stress of work and raising a kitten push them to flee reality at every opportunity. The "lack of obligation" gives them the chance to explore the world.
