The Details

Extinction didn’t extinguish our fascination with prehistoric creatures. Dinosaurs are just darn DINO-mite! Come and see just how amazing they are at Discover the Dinosaurs & Discover the Ice Age - two amazing events in one location!

Discover the Dinosaurs creates a fun environment of learning and activity that explores the wonderment and mystery of our pre-historic past. Enter through the stone arch, and adventure begins!


Prehistoric earth comes alive Discover the Ice Age! See a world transformed by snow and ice, where gigantic creatures reigned after the dinosaurs disappeared. Experience these massive moving, breathing, animatronic mammals of the Ice Age in their natural environment.


The Exhibit

  • 8-10 scenes depict different dinosaurs from a period of time that best reflects when the dinosaurs lived. The scenes come to “life” with sight, sound, and motion by using special lighting, sound effects, animatronics, and fog.

Tip: Be sure to pickup a map/scavenger hunt sheet at the entrance to the exhibit. The map guides you through the exhibit and there may even be a prize at the end!


Other Activities (included with admission)

  • Dino Dig: A fun way to experience being a Jr. Paleontologist, guests can brush away sand to reveal dinosaur fossils beneath.

  • Dino Theater(s): Guests can watch both educational and entertaining movies on our dinosaur sized screen.

  • Dino Den: Dinosaurs designed just for our youngest guests to sit on, hug, and touch. Over 10 whimsical and colorful dinosaurs that are just their size!

  • Dinosaur Rides: Ride on the back of a T-Rex or Triceratops! Hop in the saddle on top of one of these animatronic dinosaurs. They’re not too scary, but a once in a lifetime opportunity and an excellent place to take a photo.

  • Inflatables: Jump, slide, play, and have a blast in one of our several dinosaur themed inflatables.

  • Mini Golf:  This isn’t your typical clown course, oh no. This one contains facts about dinosaurs at each hole. Whether you get a hole in one, par, or bogey, you’ll learn about dinosaurs and have fun at every turn.

Additional Activities (from $5)

  • Dino Face painting: Get transformed into your favorite prehistoric rockstar with full-face painting or do a “little dino” with a simple design.
