Dinosaur Den is Huntsville’s newest indoor play area. Admission is free, but rides require tickets that can be purchased for $1 each.
Rides and required tickets include:
- Trackless train ride: 3 tickets

- Helicopter: 3 tickets
- Mechanical bull: 5 tickets

The current ticket special is purchase 50 tickets and receive an additional 10 tickets free.
Particular highlights for my 5-year-old son were the trackless train ride, carousel, helicopter, flying car and bumper cars. He also enjoyed the inflatables – which require socks to be worn for all inflatable use.

Snack Bar & Restrooms
There is a snack bar located at the back of the play area with plenty of places to sit down and enjoy a snack. We enjoyed hot dogs and a cool beverage from the soda fountain, along with fast and friendly service with a smile. Other items available for purchase at the snack bar include popcorn, cotton candy, pizza, chips, jumbo dill pickles, candy bars, chocolate dino dirt, Jurassic Jello and cookies. Restrooms are just a short walk from the snack bar area.
No outside food is permitted, other than baby food and formula.
