The Hands-On Colorado Dinosaur Exhibition That Is A Real Blast From The Past
If you love dinosaurs, Colorado is the place to be! Whether you walk in the literal footprints of dinosaurs at
Picketwire Canyon, stay the night at the quirky Dino Hotel, or take a tour of Dinosaur Ridge, you are sure to learn something new in Colorado! Have you been there, done that with all of the above? Then you need to make plans to visit this hands-on Colorado dinosaur exhibition as soon as possible:
You have visited the Royal Gorge more times than you can count and have crossed the bridge, zip-lined the canyon, and have even seen the world from inside a gondola. What next? We highly recommend visiting their exciting Dinosaur Experience!
Opened in 2016, the Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience is one of the most unique learning centers in Colorado and offers tons of hands-on opportunities for everyone in the family.
With so many things to see and do at the Dinosaur Experience, where does one begin? We recommend starting at the Dinosaur Wild Walk, which boasts both a winding path and 16 life-size animatronic dinosaurs that move and make noise!
Once you have finished your walk, it is time to test your strength on the invigorating ropes course, which offers fantastic views of the nearby Sangre de Cristo mountains, Royal Gorge Bridge, and - of course - resident dinosaurs.
Do you want to learn more about dinosaurs in general? The Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience has an impressive 10,000-square-foot museum for that, too.
As if you needed another reason to visit, the Dinosaur Experience is also home to a kid's exhibit, paleo lab, theater, and dig site!
