It all started with
Chester & Hester's Dinosaur Treasures, a gaudy gift shop stuffed
to the rafters with every kind of dinosaur toy, trinket and T-shirt
imaginable to meet the demand of souvenir hunters passing by along
U.S. Route 498. Spotting an opportunity for more excitement, the
eccentric entrepreneurs of DinoLand U.S.A. -- the fictional Chester
and Hester -- added the old-fashioned carnival "miniland" of bright string
lights, amusing attractions, classic pop tunes and wide smiles.
Rama contains two rides, a "wild mouse" style coaster with a
twist--literally--and a spinner attraction where guests ride in a
Triceratops. In addition to rides, the land includes a midway with games
that can be played to win various prizes.
