Geocache Description:

Quick Park & Grab

We used to bring our kids here when they were little, we have several pictures of them up on the dinosaur.

Iraan is the birthplace of Alley Oop, at onetime an extremely popular syndicated comic strip. Creator V.T. Hamlin was a newspaperman in Iraan when he came up with the idea for a caveman who looked like he was wearing bellbottoms when he wasn't even wearing pants. While virtually unknown now, Alley Oop was nearly as popular as Dick Tracy and Tarzan.

Mr. Oop had a dinosaur named Dinny and there is a likeness of both Alley Oop and Dinny at the 7 acre Fantasyland just west of town amid mulberry trees.

Cache is located outside the fence so you can access it even if the park is closed.
