I go to dinosaur park whenever I need to cool off or relive some stress. They have a nice gift shop if you are passing through and want a souvenir. A bit costy, but what gift shop isn't. As an added bonus, time it right and you can catch one of the most beautiful sunsets you'll see in 50 miles.
Great views of Rapid City. Great place for a picnic. I have more fun there than my kids do. Honestly, it looks like one big liability/lawsuit for the city. But who am I to judge ?? 💲💲🏥🏥🚑🚑
Went in February when it was super snowy and zero degrees out. Was a beautiful place to watch the sunset with some dinosaur friends. Liked it so much, I woke up early the next morning to watch the sunrise. A very relaxing place with some fun sculptures.
If you like kitschy road side America then this is a worth while place. You get to mill around a nice park and take pictures of your kids climbing on the concrete dinosaurs. If you are into more of a "Polished" experience then you should probably skip this.
So wonderfully kitschy and fun - and a history lesson! Works Progress Administration Project #960, dedicated 1936.
