Splash and stay cool in the shadow of dinosaurs

New England’s largest Splashpad is included with your admission to The Dinosaur Place at Nature’s Art Village! This one-of-a-kind dinosaur-themed water park is one of Mystic County’s premier attractions. The Dinosaur Place Splashpad is a zero-depth water playground with water features for every age group. Fun and engaging water tables will entertain infants and toddlers for hours, while over 30 dinosaur-themed sprinklers, dumping buckets and water guns will have the older children screaming with joy. Just added in 2015, the Vortex Superwheel is a gigantic spinning wheel which pours thousands of gallons of water down on everyone waiting below. The Splashpad also features a dinosaur “ribcage” waterfall, dueling Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor-headed water cannons and much more! There is seating available surrounding the Splashpad and changing rooms located right on site. Water shoes or flip-flops are required to use the Splashpad.
