Let your imagination run wild at this interactive park, where backyard dinosaur sculptures come to life. Only twenty minutes south of Bristol, Tenn., this unique dino park combines art with education for a great way to spend the day.
A Walk Through Time
The Dinosaur Park in Bluff City is a mix of nature, art, and science! The passion put forth into creating these large creatures is evident, and seeing them out in what could’ve been their habitat adds to the mystique. Each sculpture includes the scientific name of the dinosaur along with info on the species, and there is an interactive section for children to learn hands-on by discovering hidden fossils.
So if you’re looking for something to do for the day with the family, take a trip out to the Backyard Terrors Dinosaur Park and imagine a world with roaming prehistoric reptiles.
Get Lost in Bluff City
The historic town of Bluff City is full of hidden marvels like this lifesize dinosaur park.
Chris Kastner, the owner and “dino creator” of this backyard wonder, created the park to “educate and entertain kids of all ages.” This includes adults, too, who will have just as much fun exploring with these monster replicas as the kiddos.
With over 60 prehistoric creature sculptures, the park is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. This is a donation-based attraction, and tours are self-guided. All donations and gift shop purchases will benefit the park’s future expansion plans to keep providing a fun interactive experience to the public.
Backyard Terrors hosts other events, including The Funhouse Haunted Attraction taking place every Friday and Saturday during the month of October at Stickley Farm.
