Dinosaur Land

Dinosaur Land, located in Virginia’s Shenandoah’s Valley and 1.5 hours from DC, is a park filled with life-sized replicas of dinosaurs from the Mesozoic era, where these large reptiles were the only creatures that roamed the earth. Sometimes called the “Age of Dinosaurs,” the Mesozoic Era lasted between roughly 250-65 million years ago. Lying between the Paleozoic and the Cenozoic eras, "Mesozoic" means "middle life." Dinosaur Land, Inc. is located at 3448 Stonewall Jackson Highway, White Post, VA, 22663.

Luke Jr. in the mouth of a giant shark

Luke Jr. peers out of the mouth of a 60 foot long super-shark which were common creatures in the Mesozoic era, and as the largest fish that ever existed, it, naturally, had no predators. "Top of the food chain" as the saying goes.
