The life size dinosaurs and scenes are excellently displayed. It is interesting and fun for the kids to run around in the park and also very educational. We loved the trip.

We went to the Dinosaur Park for fun. It wasn't too bad, not the very best but fun enough. I enjoyed the walk through the park but the rest of the area is much more interesting.

I was a bit disappointed, because I expected more, but my 10yr old son enjoyed it. So I think it's a park more for the younger kids. The scaled models are impressive.

It was worth the walk. Seeing the history of dinosaurs and where they come from. Had so much fun. Statues are big and very detailed. Definitely worth a see.

Not a jaw dropping experience. You certainly not going to experience a Jurassic Park. Scaled model of Djnosaurs of the war make for fun for the kids. Great views of the Valley from the deck.

Walking around with a guide explaining the diverse groups of reptiles - their lives/nature makes one curios and broadens ones life.

The staff can be a bit more helpful and not show to the tourists that they have to work there, rather show us that you love working there.

I'm sorry, but I don't remember. It's not expensive though, because it's a very small park. You definitely don't need a guide. You can zip through there in a few minutes, even with taking photographs.

Yes there are tarred roads all the way. You don't need a 4x4 to get there. You can drive in an ordinary sedan car. You just need to drive cautiously but it's nothing dangerous. Enjoy the visit!
