Getting ready to do T-SHIRTS! I can't seem to add a post so I need an opinion. I'm considering setting these up as a black shirt with the park logo on the pocket side and the large color image on the back. Or we can just do the color image on the front alone. Ideas?

Hi everyone just a quick notice. If you are paying or donating via PayPal we will from now on be requiring the amount be at least 5.00 or you can send it via the friends and family option. I have been receiving 1.00, .50 , and even a .2 payment last night and PayPal took it all. Out of a 1.00 they take about .60 so we aren’t left with lot. I do appreciate your understanding!

Logo is done! We’ll be figuring out shirts soon!

Our Story

The dinosaur park is a dream of mine that started out with me wanting a life size dinosaur. I couldn't afford one so through much trial and error I built myself one in 2007. We received a lot of cars stopping to take pictures of our first one, the Jurassic Park-like Raptor that now stands just outside the entrance. After that one we built another and another, finally deciding to make a park of it for all to enjoy.

We currently have over 50 prehistoric creatures with more coming soon as we grow. We have a picnic area and the local Pizza Plus delivers here. We also have a small gift shop. We're a donation based attraction, which means we don't currently charge any admission to get in. We want children of all ages to able to afford to come here and experience life-sized creatures from our wonderful prehistoric past. All donations and gift shop purchases will aid us in expanding and becoming a better attraction for our patrons.

We're open everyday from 9AM to 9PM, tours are self guided, photos and videos are permitted. We ask that no one touch the dinosaurs or exhibits except where intended. There are maps available for free at the entrance with information on the animals in the park and informational signs on each animal.

We finally had a chance to visit your park yesterday, and I had to tell ya'll that it is absolutely amazing, and the dinosaurs were so impressive!!
They have a T rex!!!!
My family visited for the first time today and we all absolutely loved it! Such a fun experience! We contributed to the gift shop and hope that this will be around for many years to come! Thanks for creating this amazing place for fellow dinosaur lovers! Keep up the great work!
I love these shots I got a few weeks ago. They look so real💕
Today our 2 year old decided she was leaving her daddy before the dinosaurs got her and her mommy. We love Backyard Terrors. This is the coolest place!
We had a great time last night at Dinos in the Dark! Thank you for helping make some great memories for these boys❤
