The fun is super-sized at this dinosaur-themed outdoor adventure park

The fun at The Dinosaur Place at Nature’s Art Village is as super-sized as its main attractions: over 50 life-sized dinosaurs that inhabit 1.5 miles of pristine nature trails in this 60-acre outdoor adventure park. In addition to confronting dinosaurs, you can find your way out of a dino-themed maze (you have to slide through a T-rex mouth), climb through the obstacle-filled T-rex Tower or on the three-dimensional climbing web that swings and vibrates at Monty’s Playground. Play 18 holes at Copper Creek Mini Golf, grab a cone at the Village Ice Cream Shoppe or a burger at Monty’s Munchies or stroll through the village shops, including the Ageless Toy Shop and the Ancient Fossil Shop.
