WHAT IS IT WITH THESE THINGS AND UPSIDE DOWN SUVs?

You'd Think With All This Open Habitat Area They Could Pick On Something Their Own Size

After public opinion polls in the Spring of 1978 we opened THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE anyway. Although it may some day be safe, in the meantime it sure is fun -- depending upon your definition of the word 'fun'. Enjoy man-eating, killer DinoResidents from the comfort and 'safety' of your very own vehicle! (we suggest renting a vehicle or borrowing a neighbor's before arriving)

GET AWAY FROM RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC
It's so simple! Just drive up to our 25-foot tall gate at HAB14 and retrieve your coded ticket from our automated kiosk. The first gate will automatically open. As the first gate opens, drive up to the traffic signal with the amber flashing light and when the light turns red, stop. The gate you just drove through will lower behind your vehicle. Now you are boxed-in, surrounded by 25-foot fencing, and completely safe for probably the last time inside THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE . Place your ticket into the AutoTicketTaker just out of reach from the driver's side window, push the green button, and watch as the gate in front of you slowly opens.

*NOTE- Punch the green button. NOT the red button. Selecting the red button makes the gate derail off the track and fall 'harmlessly' on your vehicle. And then... congratulations, you've probably just set off a DinoAlert!

Once the gate is completely open, drive through slowly. If you're lucky, there won't be a "Welcoming Committee" of you-know-whats to greet you. Once it appears safe, you've just been given the opportunity to drive through the Cretaceousland! version of Yellowstone National Park! That's the good news. The bad news is: instead of furry bears, beautiful elk, awe-inspiring geysers... you have an 8" toothed, meat-eating, predators standing on the other side of your automotive safety glass. That is, if you remembered to roll up the windows. Wheeeee! Hope you brought along diapers for adults!

FULL COVERAGE INSURANCE - OR MORE - RECOMMENDED

We Suggest Using Express Lanes. It's Worth The Extra Cost.

THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE is a (unknown) miles-long, one-way tour. Or at least that's our best guess as no one has come back yet. As far as we know, there is no place to turn around. Did ya run out of gas halfway through THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE ? Awwww, too bad, so sad. But just think of 'the experience' you'll have hiking out of there across miles and miles of swampland, dense forestry, open meadows, all the while listening to the (hopefully) distant roars of gigantic meat-eating Dinosaurs! And then, if you make it this far, you'll have to navigate a very high voltage 35-foot fence. Yeah. Good luck with that.

During your CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE you'll drive on various types of roadway, ranging from severely potholed, abandoned blacktop, sinkholes, rutted out mud-filled sort-of paths, to barely recognizable trails in grassy, open countryside. Make sure your vehicle is equipped to handle this type of terrain before entering. There is absolutely no tow service available, and probably not enough money in the world even if you found one, to get them in there.

The Center for Cretaceous Studies - Cretaceousland! are not responsible for any mess in your seats, nor ANY vehicle damage, nor the extraction of the remains of your vehicle from the grounds. Nor the extraction of the remains of family members or friends. Please read 'Mr. Happy Waivers' for more buck passing. Start with Page 110, Paragraph 5, Sentence 8, under the headline So Now You Screwed Up Royally.

A word of caution: Should you and your loved ones be forced to abandon your vehicle for any reason, please be advised that Dinosaurs, such as the Tyrannosaurids, do NOT locate prey via movement, as stated in some silly dinosaur movie from the 1990s. In fact, the Acrocanthosaur atokensis has been observed to sniff out a ham and cheese sandwich from 325 yards away! We call this the 'Diana Effect', mostly because the sandwich in question belonged to former employee Diana Boredum. And we hope you know what we mean by the term 'former' employee.

IT PROBABLY GOT LOUSY GAS MILEAGE ANYWAY

Months Later We Still Have No Clues As To Why This Happened

Wonderous overlooks, spectacular scenery, jaw-dropping vistas, are yours to behold while cruising through THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE. Too bad you'll be spending the majority of your time driving at Baja-like racing speeds. However, if you're daring, and very lucky, for 9 seconds or so, you can actually stop and perhaps actually get out of your vehicle to glance at maybe as many as two spots currently rated only "Semi-Dangerous" on the Cretaceousland! Danger Scale Rating System [CDSRS].

Imagine being able to walk around in the same open range Habitat with the world's largest meat-eating predators. And we say "walk around" as opposed to "drive around" because "Vehicle Failure" tops the list of what usually happens after the very first "Dino-Vehicle" encounter.

Cretaceousland! management recommends no more than 6-to-11 seconds outside your vehicle at any time in THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE. (Current record is 10.395 seconds from 1993, held by the Dawner family, party of 4) Time suggestions include the amount of time spent having the roof and/or doors ripped off by our overly-inquisitive 5-ton residents.

HEY! WHAT DID WE SAY ABOUT FLASH PHOTOS!?!

See The Way They Play With Their Food. Huh? Oops, Wrong Caption...

Points of interest are marked with signs alongside the roadway. At least the signs that haven't been eaten, torn apart, or shredded beyond belief, yet. (what? you think WE'RE going in there to repair them?!?) Final Rest Stops are rated by the Cretaceousland! Danger Scale Rating System, based on the lack of safety: A "10" indicates the most dangerous, while a "1" indicates safest. The safest Final Rest Stop in THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE is rated at 28.

We suggest you approach these Final Rest Stops as you would a good parking spot down at the local mall. Leave a lot of room between cars - the few cars that aren't on fire or upside down, etc. We honestly believe you'll be able to determine good spots to stop or pause based solely upon the number of demolished autos, smashed SUVs, and hopefully, dried pools of blood in the vicinity.

THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE opened, more or less, in the Spring of 1981 and operates 26 hours a day during the warmer months of the year. THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE is free with regular paid admission to The Center for Cretaceous Studies and Cretaceousland!. Yeah, well, we tried to get people to pay extra for this 'privilege' but no one fell for it.

MONEY SAVING IDEAS TO CONSIDER
Visitors arriving in convertibles get 30% off their ticket price! Sunroof-equipped vehicles can save up to 15%. Families of 5 or more also get two free Family Passes - which must be used on the same day. Motorcycle riders can also take advantage of huge discounts, but off-road riding is prohibited. Or at least it would be if we HAD a road in there. Seriously, if your bike is off-road, we think you'd have much more fun at BIKING WITH DINOSAURS a completely different scenario found elsewhere on this site.

THE CRETACEOUSLAND! USED CAR LOT
Back in the summer of 1981, after towing hundreds of slightly used and/or abandoned vehicles from inside THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE, we cut the ribbon on the spanky new CRETACEOUS CARS dealership - - formerly known as Cretaceousland! Impound Lot #7 - - stocked only with highly damaged, er, previously driven, vehicles towed from THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE.

These slightly bruised, mangled, marginally repairable, barely on fire, previously owned by people who were once breathing, low-mileage vehicles are all that remains when owners mysteriously abandoned them for no apparent reason inside a live Dinosaur Habitat. With little to no haggling you can get one fine automobile, or more likely three-fourths of one, for way below Blue Book value. All vehicles are guaranteed for as far as you can tow them.

Come on down and kick the tires.. if there are any tires. Or choose from various makes and models we keep in the back that will require a 'little more work' to make them ready to be crushed. These are Rebuilders Delights, often seen at the local Demolition Derby or jumped over by motorcycles, showing a few scratches, dents, and maybe a missing windshield, roof, passenger compartment, etc etc... all gentle reminders of the fun had from various DinoEncounters while visiting THE CRETACEOUSLAND! EXPERIENCE.
