Manage your own jurassic park. Dinorama lets kids manage their own dinosaur theme parks. But first of all, they need to populate their parks with dinosaurs by buying them from the in-game store.

Manage your own jurassic park
Feed your dinos

Feed your dinos. Of course, those dinosaurs need food to survive. So kids need to make sure to feed their dinosaurs before they go unhappy and run away.

Keep your visitors entertained. The dinosaur theme parks will soon go extinct unless it has visitors. So kids have to attract guests and keep them entertained, and earn special rewards while they're at it.

Keep your visitors entertained

What is it about?

In Dinorama, kids are in charge of everything that has to do with their dinosaur theme parks, from hiring employees to selling to running concessions to taking care of dinosaurs. They're challenged to manage money and time well in anticipation of unpredictable events like lower tickets sales and food price hikes. They can also earn interest with the piggy bank.

For those who...

  • ... want to learn about money and time management. ... love dinosaurs.

Not for those who...

  • ... think their kids are too young to be playing with money (or at least the concept thereof). ... scared of dinosaurs.

Why we love it

Money and time management is an important concept that kids would do well to learn as early as they can. And Dinorama is a great app to assist parents in teaching their children that concept. It just goes to show that any subject can be made more fun and playful with the help of dinosaurs.
