FTA:  The park logo is clearly inspired by Jurassic Park.

Because dinosaurs?

Well, I always wanted to take my family to a place where they would be eaten by big terrible monsters.....

Why bother? Just go walk about here if you want the real 'instant death' experience...and that's just Kingscross in Sydney

You have to be pretty jaded and crotchety to have a problem with a dinosaur theme park. Just go and enjoy it. Also I'm'm pretty sure that first T-Rex is several times too big, but it's almost how big I used to think they were, before I saw a skeleton in a museum, and was really disappointed, which is what turned me jaded and crotchety.

Going to Australia is a bit much for me, but that place looks fun. If it were close I'd check it out

I think that first picture is distorted via the angle the shot was taken.

And for all I think Clive is an authoritarian nutt, I still wouldn't mind standing under a life size t-rex.

For those of you that don't feel like going all the way to Australia to see this, there's one in Florida that's been open for years

Think back to when you were 4 or 5, and your parents first took you to a museum* that had dinosaur skeletons.  From your perspective back then, they would have been that big.

*If they weren't doing that, they failed as parents.

Just remember, those animatronics break down all the time. Someone has to go inside and fix them. And since they're in AUstralia, they are probably filled with spiders and snakes which will kill you dead instantly. No thanks, I'll stick to making my skeletons.

If you want to travel less and see crappy animatronics, stop by the Las Vegas Natural History Museum sometime.

Yeah it's true. I recently went back to the Natural History Museum and saw the diplodocus in the entrance. As a kid it was huge, ginormous, it could have eaten the planet. When I went back recently I had to step over it to get in. Such a disappointment :(

I took my kids (ages 4-6) to the Peabody natural history museum last summer. They ran into the dinosaur room tearing around looking at all the stuff at their eye level. "Daddy, look at this! Daddy, look at this!" It took me a full minute to get them to look up, to see the giant apatasaurus skeleton. Their mouths dropped open and they just stared in awe. It was great

There is a dinosaur park just off the interstate a few miles north of Tampa.  When my wife was at school in Tampa we went to the park during one visit.  No animatronics at this place, but it's major cool....life sized replicas of many different species.  My daughter came unglued...all the kids there were jazzed.

I was always disappointed by T-Rex's size until I saw this massively huge one at a museum in Alberta Canada. Holy crap, it was awesome to finally see it as large as you expect.

LittlePult isn't even two and I've already taken him to different natural museums including the Field Museum in Chicago. (Wave hi to Sue little guy!) When you ask him what a dinosaur says he growls at you and stomps his little feet. WifeaPult and I like to think we're doing it right. Hopefully he'll have that awe and wonder his whole life.

Isn't that the creationist dinosaur park?

Negative.  Nothing biblical there that I know of...everything based on paleontology, no theology to be seen.  Website says they now have animatronics.  It's pretty cool, was a great way to spend the morning.

OK. That was Kent Hovind's Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola I was thinking about.
