The Boneyard Dig Site Details
TypePoi | Ride
The Boneyard Dig Site is a would-be paleontologist’s dream. Kids can wander through multi-level mazes, slide down covered slides, climb giant rocks and dig for “fossils.” There's even a Jeep® for make-believe driving! Tad and Lily love this play area especially the archeological dig site where they can excavate “fossils” from Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Woolly Mammoth. We parents love this section, too; there’s a shaded seating area with fans and music. It’s the only play area in the park, and it’s a surefire way to brighten their mood.
The Boneyard is a dinosaur-themed playground in Dinoland U.S.A.® Land at Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. The floor is cushiony soft and there are lots of attending Cast Members for safety. The archeological dig site is shaded with a special, no-stick sand. It also has a seating area with large fans and music so adults can relax while the kids play. Guests may remain in their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to experience the attraction.
