Experience an Outdoor Adventure of Prehistoric Proportions:

  • Encounter over 40 Life-Sized Dinosaurs on 1.5 miles of pristine nature trails

    Melissa said, “The trail is a huge circle with dinosaurs and then a smaller loop trail that has a huge incline. She would suggest the kids wear sneakers the pebbles are kind of annoying.

  • Make a SPLASH in New England’s largest Splashpad*

    (a zero depth water playground)

    Melissa said, “The splash pad is awesome. The kids had the most fun there. Also, you must wear shoes in the splash pad.”

    FYI details:

    “Attention Guests: Our Jurassic Moon Bounce and T. Rex Tower Playscape require children to wear socks for safety. Please bring a pair with you during your next visit! “

  • Slide, climb and play on Monty’s DINO-Sized Playground

    Melissa said, “We didn’t hit the playground because it was really sunny. But they have a jungle gym area with a zip line and then other climbing and slides.”

Melissa said, “There is a food court and picnic area. The food court was also reasonably priced. They had hot dogs, hamburger, Dino nuggets, pretzels, etc. The bathrooms were clean and they have a changing room to change in and out of bathing suits. There is an ice cream shop at the entrance so a good treat at the end of a long day.
