Large shop as you enter and then a playground which the kids loved. Te exhibits were well placed and numerous. Interesting for both adults and kids alike. The talk (try and catch it - at certain times) was wonderful and Sara (sp) was captivating. It did lead to a lot of questions from our 5yo, but that's no bad thing!... More

We were last here in October of 2013. The Wooly Mammoth exhibit has been added as well as an interactive display to identify different dinosaurs, and, of course, the carnivore attack encounter. All well done. Lots of interactive activities for children. Definitely a destination park.

I never thought this would be a place I would go being a creationist....BUT it was fabulous! The grounds are impeccable, beautifully landscaped, plus there are play areas and picnic areas. Very well thought out attraction with incredible huge dinosaurs in realistic jungle settings. We went to film a birthday video to send our soon to be 4 years old... More

This place was WAY better than we expected. When I read "over 200 life-sized dinosaurs" I figured over half would be no bigger than a chicken. What a wonderful surprise! Dinosaur World is basically a lovely botanical garden populated by a vast array of large to HUGE replicas of prehistoric beasts: lurking in the jungle foliage, soaring just above the... More

I took 4 children. 3 nine yr olds and one 11yr old. The 9's had a blast and could not had enough of the boneyard, the gem mining and the playground. I had to drag them out. The 11th mostly tag a long and participated and had some fun but not as much as the 9's.
