Where are we going today?
ROAR....that rumble can only mean one thing....the T-Rex is coming! Eccles Dinosaur Park is a GREAT place for kids to spend the day out with the family. It's exciting, fascinating, and they can learn all about these amazing prehistoric creatures that once roamed the earth all those millions of years ago.
The park has over 100 sculptures, which are all realistic and full sized, as they are based on actual fossil skeletons. Pretty incredible!
These crazy creatures are also very lifelike because they move - Yep! Brought to life by robotics, as well as state of the art sound systems giving them those fierce sounds, it will feel like you are actually back in the Jurassic period walking with these huge creatures from the past!
The park, located in Utah, is also true to the state, and all species indigenous to Utah are always a special feature at Eccles Dinosaur Park. And of course, one of the most popular exhibits is always that infamous T-Rex, with it's huge sharp teeth (and quite teenie arms!)
To add to your family day out experience, there is also an Education Center at the park where kids of all ages are more than welcome to spend a few hours learning more about the dinosaurs. There are exhibits, art, books and lessons which will teach them everything they need to know!
The park often hold events too, like Dino Day Camp, and Adventures In Art, so keep an eye out for those to make sure you don’t miss out on your favorites!
ROAR - it’s DINO time at Eccles Dinosaur Park!

This is a fun place to take the kids. They have some wonderful interactive educational exhibits and lots of play area for running and climbing. The woman who gave the brief presentation did a fantastic job engaging the children. Overall, a great experience.

Neat place with fun dinosaur displays. The price beats many other dinosaur themed places in near by cities.
