The Bone Zone is the perfect family-friendly children’s activity for all dinosaur lovers! Work as a team with the help of Dr. Bones to uncover a dinosaur skeleton in our southwestern-style, replica paleontologist dig site. Have fun carefully brushing away the top layers of sand and gravel to reveal the dinosaur as it was actually found! Truly an amazing experience and a whole lot of hands-on fun for kids and adults to do but the fun doesn’t stop there… Each junior paleontologist takes home a kit of real fossils and an activity sheet to continue your adventure! For the super adventurous junior paleontologist, choose the Bone Zone Deluxe Package which includes an additional large fossil from our special selection and an information card describing this bonus treasure!

If you want to add something spectacular to your fossil collection, choose The Bone Zone Deluxe Package to choose a large bonus fossil of your choice from our special collection, which comes with an information card.
