The Prehistoric Forest was built around 1963. Now the gates' chained closed and supposedly there's an alarm system with motion detectors to keep people out. There are some things to see from the road.

The Prehistoric Forest had a safari train that took visitors around the 8-acre property, past a rumbling and smoking volcano and a 35' waterfall. There were dinosaur bones, serpents, pterodactyls, a dinosaur egg nest, a caveman, strange giant daisies and fake cactus, and 15 life-size dinosaurs. These creations were the work of James Q. Sidwell. After the ride, there was a dig site with fossils, footprints and bones. There was also a waterslide (added in the early 1980s) and a crazy maze - both now gone.
