A must stop on your trip to Vernal. I'd never been to Vernal before but of course I knew about the iconic pink dinosaur so I had to stop for pictures. It's a cool thing to visit.

Many of us remember this from when we were younger. If you don't have such memories then it's just a large pink dinosaur. It is in a nice setting for photos. Considering this area is known for dinosaurs, it's quite an appropriate "statue".

Thank yousah

It truly is one of the great wonders of the world. Never have I seen a pink dinosaur before. And don't get me started on his/her eyelashes. Unbelievable

I saw this as a child and my dad remembers taking a picture with it when he was a child. Now my kids have the same memory. It's just a statue but it's well kept and a good short stop for a memorable photo op.

Pink Dino is still there and fun for the kids to see! It was one of my daughter's favorite attractions in Vernal when she was little.

The pink dinosaur on the east of town is a local icon to Vernal city. I've heard it said that the structure has been extensively repaired about 10 years ago because the original (built in the 1950s?) had been around for a long time. I...More
