Fossil Dig

The Fossil Dig is a 15-minute guided activity. Kids dig for fossils in a specially stocked pit area that includes everything from shark teeth and gastropods to stingray barbs and Mosasaur teeth. They can select three of their favorites to take home. Due to COVID-19, the Fossil Dig is closed until further notice. Bags of 3 fossils from the Fossil Dig activity are available for $3 plus tax. 

Dino Gem Excavation

Chose a bag or bucket, then run it through our mining sluice to see what treasures you have discovered, including real minerals, arrowheads, or gems. You get to keep everything you find! (Cost included with every excavation pass.)

ATTENTION: The Dino Gem Excavation is closed for the winter. Any pre-purchased tickets including the Excavation Pass will receive the bag of minerals and gems to take home to excavate.

Bone Yard

Grab some tools and start excavating to uncover the 27-foot skeleton from under the sand!
