I guess there are multiple reasons for this pick to seem like a joke. We drove how long to get suckered in to paying how much for a plastic dinosaur exhibit in a carpeted strip mall? [Answers at end of post].
The trip started with the biggest slag tag I've ever seen stamped on a teenage girl that took our money and ended in the gift shop that didn't even offer any mugs for my collection. In between is all the stuff that makes this tourist trap worth recommending… kind of… maybe.
We were the only people there without kids and were viewed by the MILFs as either perverts (for taking photos which inevitably featured somebody's kid in the background) or retarded because I partook in the free coloring station.
The sculptures themselves are pretty cool, even if the amount is slightly underwhelming and the poor kid giving a tour to a birthday party full of distracted five year olds (one of which asked if I was his mommy) was priceless: “Guys! guys! guys! Just listen–I have one more thing to tell you about T.Rex. Guys… ”
There's also an awkward looking cave man scene with a huge bear skeleton and a woolly mammoth mural and some human skulls, which seemed to keep the young dads happy. The whole odd experience will cost you $12 per head and it takes about an hour and a half to get there–I just want you to know what you're getting into because I sure didn't.
