Cabazon Dinosaurs


These enormous dinosaurs are located at the Cabazon exit off I10 a little west of Palm Springs.  The Brontosaurus is named “Dinny the Dinosaur” while the Tyrannosaurus is “Mr. Rex”.   They were created by Knott’s Berry Farm sculptor and portrait artist Claude K. Bell to promote his Wheel Inn Restaurant.  The dinosaurs can be seen in several movies including Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Pixar’s Inside Out.
