    This is a really fun place to come with kids that are walking age. They have a chance to take a nice long walk and go see some dinosaur tracks as well as some dinosaur bones if they’re up for it! Of course there’s always the tour bus as well so it makes it easy to be able to see all the sites and have a fun time without getting too tired. The gift shop is nice and it has lots of distracting and entertaining things for the kids to look at and play with.It seems like the staff is a hodgepodge of some folks who love being there and some folks who can’t imagine standing another minute of it. But the ones who love being there make it totally worth it!I would definitely recommend coming with the expectation of taking a nice long walk with your family. It’s a great way to spend a couple of hours together!

    If you take the self-guided walking tour, it’s a bit of a hike, so wear your walking shoes. Wonderful, enthusiastic guides for the guided tour. Lots of interesting information and beautiful sights. Wonderful views of Red Rocks Amphitheater. Loved it.

    I took our 5 1/2 year old and our 3 year old up to Dinosaur Ridge and we took the bus tour. TJ, the tour guide, was fantastic. He was excited about what he was explaining to us and took time to answer our questions. In response to another person who posted here and gave this place a a one star review: 1)They don’t really spray paint (“deface”) the dino tracks; it’s charcoal :)2)The signage is there to protect a pretty fragile surface; it’s all sedimentary rock). If you take the tour, they encourage you to climb up on some areas and to touch the surface of fossils and prints. Our kids loved it.3) When you bring your kids to any museum or interpretive thing that deals with dinosaurs, you’re just going to have to assume that you’re going to get the evolution spin on things. Expect it, and if it goes against your beliefs simply talk with your kids about the different views. We are all ultimately responsible for our own learning.I should note a couple other things great for kiddos, especially if you are on vacation.1) There is a “dinosaur dig” area in the shade by the visitor center/ gift shop2) The gift shop is really well stocked and educational. The prices are pretty fair, too.Finally, it’s a non-profit, and I know these places always struggle to both get funding and use their limited resources well. If it were a privatized thing or had an endowment, I’d probably give it a 4 or 4.5, but for the type of organization it is, I’d give it 5. Go visit and throw some support their way.
