Guests Can Now Purchase Tickets to North Carolina’s Premier Interactive, Prehistoric Adventure

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., MAY 18, 2022 Sweet Valley Ranch’s Dinosaur World attraction returns June 10, 2022, with activities for the entire family to enjoy. With more than 40 animatronics, a fossil museum, Ice Age animals, a caveman exhibit and other special effects, guests can take in the sights and sounds of the forest as they are transported to a time when dinosaurs ruled the land.

Visitors can fulfill their wildest dreams of riding a dinosaur, driving go-karts or ATVs in a guided off-road tour and studying fossils like a real archeologist. Younger visitors can enjoy the bouncy castles on the property and get up close and personal with reptiles that evolved from the original dinosaurs. Guests can also opt for a traditional tour of the farm and meet other furry and feathered friends, such as llamas, rabbits and peacocks.

“Sweet Valley Ranch is the place where nature meets adventure,” said Fred Surgeon, President and owner of Sweet Valley Ranch. “We are so excited to be able to bring the largest dinosaur exhibit in North Carolina to our guests, both young and old. Our goal is to truly take them back in time with a healthy mix of engaging education and pure adventure.”
