You can go to Cabazon Dinosaurs Christmas now through the end of the year to take photos with Santa Rex, Mrs. Claus-o-saurus and their new dinosaurs!

Go inside the Cabazon Dinosaurs Christmas edition

Going inside the Cabazon Dinosaurs is a lot of fun… and a lot of tiny stairs.

The winding stairwell has a lot of tiny steps all leading to the inside of the T-Rex’s head.

From inside the mouth, you can have a scenic view of the highway, and below.

Admission inside the Cabazon Dinosaur T-Rex is included with your ticket.

How to see the Cabazon Dinosaurs without paying

You can still take pictures with both the Cabazon Dinosaurs without paying by parking in the lot and grabbing a picture with them outside the event center.

The dinosaurs are not gated off, so you can really arrive whenever you’d like.

Nearby, you’ll find some quick eateries in case you want to grab something to eat and eat it at the available picnic benches.
