No need to worry when the 50 foot high “active” steam-erupting volcano goes off while you play 18 holes through a massive 70,000 square foot playing surface, populated by 50 astonishingly realistic and life-sized dinosaurs — many which loom over 30 feet high. We also love this new Dinosaur exhibit in Niagara Falls.
