The Wizard (1989)

Near the end of the 1980s Nintendo classic, “The Wizard,” Jimmy, the younger brother of Fred Savage’s character, makes his way to the Cabazon Dinosaurs, to relive some family memories.  The dinosaurs are a roadside attraction in Cabazon, California and can be seen from the 10 freeway.  Originally built by a sculptor and theme park artist as a way to attract customers to his nearby restaurant, the dinosaurs now operate as a small museum and gift shop.  The dinosaurs were also famously seen in the 1985 film “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure.”  Visitors are able to go inside the dinosaurs, just like in both films.

LOCATION: 50700 Seminole Dr., Cabazon, CA 92230
