Hopefully it'll be better than when it was up in Madison WI... Here's a review copy & paste of one many reviews: Do NOT waste your money! We just went to this yesterday in Madison, Wisconsin. Cost us $40 for our family of 4 to get in. They had 3 moving dinosaurs that are about 6 feet tall and a handful more that donít do anything. EVERYTHING else you have to pay extra for, and by extra I mean $6 per person. So the 2 minutes in the bounce house another $6, really bad mini golf another $6, 1 minute dino ride another $6, etc. etc. We have never felt this ripped off!

Paid $41 for my self and two children. Not much to see, and everything is extra.....extra ripoff. Good for 3-5 who don't know better.

I took my 3 kids to the show in Rosemont. It cost $58 for us to get in, they had a handful of animated dinosaurs with green tarp back drops. AFter you spent the 5 minutes looking at the dinos you you followed the trail to the empty your wallet inflatables, face painting, gem mining, minature golf and novelty toy area. What a ripoff.$6 for a kid to go in an inflatable? If you wanted your child to be able to go on all the inflatables it would have cost you about $30 for one child. They really play this up as a spectacular show but myself and other patrons there I was talking to thought it was a spectacular ripoff. Don't waste your money, very dissappointing.

Kim hits T.Rex. Vastasaurus rex is fake. Megalodon got eaten up. Livyatan got beaten up. Tylosaurus is too skinny. Cacharodontosaurus was too light. Mosasaurus loses.

Sounds like nobodys the king!!!
