What was it like to live during the time of the dinosaurs? Walk through Jurassic Forest, and find out! In this 16 hectare (40 acre) prehistoric preserve, you'll discover a land populated with dinosaurs that ruled the planet 250 million years ago. Wander along the walking trail, and just when you least expect it, you'll realize that there's a giant Albertosaurus in the woods roaring at you. Over a dozen large animated dinosaurs are hiding throughout the forest, triggered by motion detectors as you approach.
Be amazed by abundant fossils and stunning landscape at Dinosaur Provincial Park. You’ll have time to roam the hoodoo trail, explore fossil exhibits and have lunch in the Cretaceous Café. After walking in the footsteps of giant dinosaurs, continue your journey to meet your hosts from Bar Diamond Guest Ranch.
