Dinosaur Land is a roadside attraction that invites visitors to step into the world of the prehistoric past. Turn back the pages of time to the Mesozoic era, when dinosaurs were the only creatures that roamed the earth.
Why Dinosaur Land is a Great Place for Kids
Dinsosaur Land was started in the mid 1960’s by Joseph Geraci. According to Roadside America, Geraci got his inspiration for this family attraction when he saw fiberglass dinosaurs at a mini golf course in Florida. Dinosaurland has been in the family ever since and now Geraci’s daughters run the park. There are over 50 prehistoric replicas, including four that were installed in the last two years. There are also a few unique creations like a 60 foot shark and King Kong.
Generations have made a family tradition of spending the day at Dinosaur Land. Says manager JoAnn Leight, “Families visit the park who remember coming here as children and now bring their children. Some dinosaurs are usually their favorites and they can remember having their pictures taken with them.”
Dinosaur Land is all about imagination. Says Ms. Leight, “Families enjoy the park as there are no rides, nothing to climb, or swing from – just life size animals that are available to walk around, under and touch.”
