Osceola Parkway, Kissimmee, FL 34747, USA

One of the lands of Disney's Animal Kingson, DinoLand U.S.A. is a dinosaur lovers dream destination. It's home to a children's play area, a nature trail, a 1,500-seat amphitheater, and DINOSAUR, one of the Animal Kingdom's three thrill rides. The land is separated into three distinct areas: a dinosaur dig-site, dinosaur museum (housing the area's signature ride), and a streetside amusement park.

DinoLand's Backstory

DinoLand U.S.A. originally started as a small highway town where an amateur fossil-hunter found some dinosaur bones in 1947. After contacting some scientist friends, they gathered their money together to purchase the site. Since then, scientist, volunteers and grad students have been living there trying to find answers about dinosaurs. The Dino Institute was founded and opened the site as a "fossil discover park". An old fishing lodge on the property became the Restaurantosaurus. Meanwhile, the Dino Institute discovered how to warp vehicles through time, and thus started doing time tours.

Chester and Hester, two locals, were determined to make a quick buck and converted their gas station into a fossil souvenir shop. Not to be out done by the Dino Institute, they created their own version of DINOSAUR named Primeval Whirl. They also added Triceratop Spin and the midway games.

DINOSAUR

Take off on a scary, prehistoric tour aboard a rip-roaring Time Rover to save a dinosaur from extinction. Board a sturdy, 12-seat Time Rover and race through a darkened forest in search of the tagged dinosaur.

Experience the world as it existed 65 million years ago! Speed past a spiky Styracosaurus grappling with a nearby tree. Brace yourself as you careen through unpredictable hairpin turns, a ragged Alioramus foraging for food nearby. Dart around a fearsome Velociraptor hunting for prey and avoid the clutches of a Cearadactylus soaring overhead.

As the countdown clock ticks, meteors crash all around you: The end is near. Suddenly, the terrifying roar of an unimaginably huge beast can be heard in the distance. Is it the friendly Iguanodon you’re searching for—or the dreaded Carnotaurus looking for a meal?

Time is nearly up. Will you complete your mission and make your escape? Or will you join the dinosaurs and become extinct?

Hop inside a time-machine-styled contraption—created by research-scientist cousins Esther, Fester, Nester and Lester—and journey back to when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Climb a ramp and pass through a zany 4-ringed time portal before beginning a steady, swinging descent into the past.

TriceraTop Spin
