Wonder of Dinosaurs

If there are dinosaur lovers in your family, check out the Wonders of Dinosaur at the Southbay Galleria.  Even if you aren't a dinosaur lover, this is a great place to burn some energy.  With bouncey jumpers of all sizes, including large ones with obstacle courses, it's suited for kids ages 2-12.  They advertise this as an educational venue but there really isn't much education around.  Let's face it, it's just a HUGE dinosaur themed indoor playground.  Aside from bouncies, there's a large mechanical T-Rex to ride, a maze, a mini ride and lots of coloring sheets at each table.  One thing I didn't like was the fact that they charge for adults to basically just supervise their own kids.  They are expanding to the 2nd floor (currently on 3rd) on May 26, 2017 with more activities like a carousel, train ride and 18 hole mini golf course, all of which will cost extra.  It seems admission to the original 3rd floor location will remain all-inclusive with no additional fees.  Admission does include in/out privileges which is nice since food is not allowed inside.  They do have birthday party packages in a private room.  Overall, if pricing isn't an issue, I'd recommend this place at least once.
