I saw this as a child and my dad remembers taking a picture with it when he was a child. Now my kids have the same memory. It's just a statue but it's well kept and a good short stop for a memorable photo op.

Pink Dino is still there and fun for the kids to see! It was one of my daughter's favorite attractions in Vernal when she was little.

It's a big pink T-Rex that you can't miss. I have no idea why it get's it's own area. You drive past it and you say "Oh, there's a big pink dinosaur.

Another Roadside Attraction consisting of a large pink dinosaur to get you to stop. Drive by, smile if you must, but no reason to stop.
