Scene 5 - Kids Dig Site


Kids Love to Dig - Parents Love to Watch


Across the path from the Ruyangosaurus is a large kids dig site containing most of a full skeleton of a large predator. The dig site is contoured to appear as if it were found in the park at Kings Island. Guests are encouraged to uncover the skeleton, which is covered in sand.
