Dinosaur Place

We went to Dinosaur Place in Oakdale CT. We all loved it. The kids said their favorite part was going into the mines and picking gems. I would highly recommend this place. It doesn't look big from the front but then you go out back and there are 2-3 trails that have life size dinos in the woods, there is a watersplash area, a maze that we went through, an ice cream shop and food shop, dino themed playground and then....indoors---there were 3 different things that the kids can do. We chose the mining but there is also finding a dinosaur and panning through a creek.
The Splash Area....Sean didn't want to go in but once he saw his big brothers, he loved it.

One of the many dinos in the woods....

You can't really tell but Korey and the kids are under the brontosaurus...can you imagine this thing coming towards you!

Here is the indoor was full of little rocks that we dug through for the pretty gems. Our cave was in the dark and the boys used their cool hats with flashlights on them!

Some of the gems that Andrew got!
