MomMomOnTheGo and crew headed out to Dinotown to check it out. In our group there were two adults and two 8 year old girls.
Upon arrival to the park, you will need to pay for both adult and child entrance fees. The younger children under 35 inches are free to get in. I assume that the under 35 inches are free to get in because there are fewer activities that they are tall enough to participate in.
Here are the admission costs:
*Kids under 35″ FREE
*Kids 35″ to 54″ $11.95
*Bigger Kids over 54″ only $7.95 with an Adult DISCOUNT coupon at www.dinotown.com. Without the discount code the fee is $9.95.
The obvious theme of Dinotown is dinosaurs which can be seen in their live shows that are aimed for entertaining the younger children in the crowd. The age range for the shows I would say are from about 3 years old to 6 years old.
There are also a number of dinosaur themed items in the park such as little guys and cars for photo opportunities as well as a giant dinosaur bouncy castle.
We went to Dinotown on a super sunny and hot day of over 30 degrees out and by early morning the bouncy castles were pretty hot on my girls feet. If you want to avoid the hot feet, make sure to show up with a pair of socks handy to add a layer between their feet and the hot rubber of the bouncy castles.
The one bouncy castle that stayed cool was the water slide one 🙂 and it was a park favorite for us.
Remember to bring your Little One’s bathing suit because as soon as they see the bouncy water slide, I am sure they will be heading straight to it. It is also a great way to stay cool on a hot day to enjoy the rest of the activities.
Another favorite of ours was the paddle boats.
My Little One and her friend who are both 8 were just short enough to be allowed on the paddle boats. They really enjoyed them and went on them a couple of times.
Another great activity is the blow up sports center where you get to practice your batting, throwing, and kicking at each of the different stations.
Two other favorites of ours were the mini golf and the life sized snakes and ladders game where the kids are the game piece and move across the board.
To cool off, we all had ice cream at the on site ice cream shop. They had a ton of flavors.
If you are thinking of heading to Dinotown, then here are my tips for your trip….
*Head out on a cooler day or remember socks so little feet stay cool on the bouncy castles.
*Bring snacks and even a picnic as there are picnic tables to enjoy your lunch there.
*Have your little ones wear their swimsuit so they can run and cool off in the water slide as they get hot.
*Get the hand stamp as you go in because then you are allowed to re-enter the attraction that day if you wish in and out privileges.
I spoke to one of the attendants when I was at Dinotown and asked the recommended age group and was told ages 3 to 10 years old. I recommend that park for those ages 4 to 6 as the prime age group. Younger kids can also enjoy the shows and a few other things at Dinotown. As the kids get over 6, they will likely enjoy the things my 8 year old enjoyed. I personally do not see a 9 or 10 year old enjoying Dinotown as it is geared towards younger kids. My Little One at 8 years old, indicated to me that she liked a number of the things at Dinotown but felt it was meant for younger kids.
