Well kept, very clean. The lady with the blue hair that did the cave show was great. Really engaged the children. Place was like a nature walk back in time. Definitely meant for younger children though probably under the age of nine. Better than average gift shop.

I was skeptical after reading a few negative comments...but they were unfounded. The park is easy to find, park, and enter. The grounds are well maintained and very clean. Bring your own food...there are plenty of picnic tables and the parking is close to the entrance. There are soda drink machines around the park. The dinosaur replicas are immaculate...and placed...

My grandchildren (10 and 8) had lots of fun with all the activities! They enjoyed mining for “precious stones”, and had a lot of questions to ask about the dinosaurs that were answered either by the personnel, or by their own experience in digging for fossils. There is not a cafeteria or a restaurant, but food is allowed to enter.

Dinosaur World is so much more interesting and diverse than just the 150 life-size dinosaur models in a lush jungle setting. The theme is more about the world as it was millions of years ago including geology, crystal formations etc. The prehistoric museum has amazing fossilized teeth, dinosaur eggs and bones which made it all far more real than sci-fi...

Took the grandkids (ages 5, 4 and 2) to Dinosaur World yesterday and it was great. Lots and lots of dinosaurs, educational and interactive. The park is beautiful and includes picnic areas and a wonderful playground that the kids really enjoyed. The Fossil Dig and Dino Gem Excavation were favorites. They were both educational and the kids went home with... More

We had a great visit to Dinosaur World. The children enjoyed seeing the dinosaur and playing on playground. However not sure why people are allowed to bring their dogs in the park. Don't need dogs on playground where children are playing. Would not go back to the park for that reason.

Dinosaur world was great. A very clean and nice park. We spent the extra money to let our toddler dig for fossils and pan for gemstones. He had a blast! Park was not crowded which was also a huge plus.

My family consists of my wife and I and our four children (6, 4, 2 & 1). We are big on day trips and family-friendly activities. We live on the gulf coast north of Tampa. Making the trips back forth on I-4 to and from Orlando, we spot Dinosaur World each time. We finally decided to go ahead and check... More

Our family has driven by this attraction many times over the years. Last month we added a day to our staycation and decided to give it a go. What a fantastic place, it is so much more than what it appears to be from the side of the freeway!!! The park was clean, well organized, fun and had a friendly... More

We visited Dinosaur World with our 6 year old daughter and we all enjoyed the park. There is a great playground for the kids, plenty of kids activities and lots of things to see. I thought that it was not only fun but educational and the life sized dinosaurs were a sight to see. Well worth the money!
