Dinosaur World

Now we are into Wednesday. We drove to CT. Being the dinosaur lovers that we are we decided to check this place out. I am learning to accept that some places are hyped up on the Internet and not so great in real life.
This place lived up to it's word and we didn't even do all the things they had to offer.

Just after we entered we came to this awesome playground. Because of school vacation they even had a few baby goats, a camel and some llama there to pet. There was a splash park and ice cream shop for play when the weather warms up.
We traveled with our cousins who are much younger than us so I wasn't sure how the trip would go. Would it be fun for kids 2 to 12?

YES! The place was a large loop with real sized dinoaurs. Most we could go right up to and touch. Sadly, Ava's favorite Triceratops where over a river so we could only take her picture on the bridge.

I also didn't get any pictures of the maze mostly because we couldn't see in the fence but they ran thru it 3-4 times, even Liam who is only 5. The end was a slide which was into the mouth of a T-Rex.
In the end we ate at the Café as everyone had a dinosaur appetite. The café was in the middle(good business plan there) of a giant gift shop where you could buy dinosaur, science and earth based toys. There was also a big jewelry side of the store. The things we didn't do were mine for gems, search for dinosaur bones or mine for gold. I think at this point we had decided the little ones and grown-ups had had enough and the place was a decent drive away. ( think just past Mystic Aquarium)
The cost could get pretty high if you did it all as well. They grouped those last 3 things into packages but with the dinosaur place you could spend about $50 a kid. Yikes. The dinosaur place was $17 and if everything was open, well worth it.
