Combining entertainment with learning, walk-through exhibit Discover the Dinosaurs teaches kids about prehistoric times with animatronic and static dinosaurs. Children can hop on the back of a T-Rex and go for a ride, jump in dinosaur-themed inflatables, dig for fossils, play dino-themed miniature golf and more. Pay-extra activities include gem and fossil mining and face painting. All that said, online reviews of this tour are mixed, to say the least, so it might be wise to not bring brontosaurus-sized expectations.
