Dinosaurland – White Post, VA

http://www.dinosaurland.com/
I visited this gem a few years back. This is a classic tourist attraction at its best, populated with giant fiberglass statues of creatures both real and imagined. It was built in the 1960s by Joseph Geraci, and has been in operation ever since.

The attraction features such creatures as the:
Allosaurus
Ankylosaurus
Apatosaurus
Corythosaurus
Diatryma
Dimetrodon
Ground Sloth
Iguanodon
Moschops
Plateosaurus
Polacanthus
Praying Mantis
Protoceratops
Psittacosaurus
Sabre Tooth Tiger
Seventy-foot Octopus
Struthiomimus
Trachodon
Twenty-foot King Cobra
Tylosaurus
Yaleasaurus

  1. We have something similar in Glen Rose, Texas, just not at the same scale. Dinosaur Valley State Park is a camping location that also boasts some of the most well-preserved Dinosaur tracks in Texas. The Park, which sits on the Paluxy River, opened in 1972. When you guests drive through the front gate, they are greeted by several life-size models of dinosaurs similar to the ones you posted from Dinosaurland. I couldn’t find any of my personal photos from trips there, but there is one on the official website, here:

    Just thought you might like to see something similar from the Southwest.

    Have a great day!

  2. this post was amazing to me for nostalgic reasons…I grew up in northern virginia and my dad took me there when I was a kid (about 6 or 7 I recon) I had NO IDEA the place was still there!
