I had driven by this places dozens of times and rolled my eyes. But when my nephews wanted to go, I did. And I was pleasantly surprised. They were 5 and 8 years old and had a blast. It wasn't bad for the adults either....More

This was self paced and very informative! Very reasonably priced and it looked very much as one would imagine the 'age' to have been. Fossil and gem finding opportunities were available. There was seating, shade, misters, bathrooms and vending easily available. The shopping area is...More
