The T-Rex Planet event at the Benton County Fairgrounds was a complete and total bust, plus an unorganized ripoff.
We took the family and came out broke after spending $200 after two long, hot, sweaty hours. There were no vendors for refreshments, not even water.
The advertisement stated “indoor” bounce houses, which were outside! Sitting areas consisted of one outdoor arbor, and inside a non- or slightly-working air conditioning for viewing a completely boring video. All the activities, “rides” were $10 (two tickets @ $5). The entry fee was $16 (kids under 1 free)?
This was a complete disappointment for something that could have been a really great event! It was ridiculous that the kids were begging to go because of waiting in line sweating and nothing to keep them hydrated.

The advertisement should have said, bring a cooler and food and umbrellas or misters too. We actually saw fans in the corners, et cetera, all turned off. Epic fail!
