Young boys love this place

My young boys have been here at least 4-5 times with school field trips and with their mom. They love it. It's a fun adventure for them every time!!

We stopped at this exit for Mammoth Cave, but what trip to Cave City would be complete without a visit to Dinosaur World. You enter through the gift ship which is a trip all by itself, but after spending more than a couple of dollars the set you loose in the dinosaur park. There is also a musem a staged... More

This is a great place for people of all ages to explore what it's like to be amongst life sized dinosaurs. The guide at the fossil dig station was knowledgable and took the time to explain to each child the history of their fossils. I love this place and so did my 2yr old who is crazy about dinosaurs. I... More

This would be a grest place to take your 5 year old who just figured out Dinosaurs. The grounds are nice but would be a bit less than entertaining for older kids. That said convenient to stopping off I-65. Good if looking to get out of car and go for a walking the woods.

Dinos in Kentucky? We went there just because who doesn't like Dinosaurs? They have some pretty nice displays. The only thing I can say bad is the toys in the shop are overpriced but definitely a must for the little ones

Visited as a family. Everyone had a fun time. Dogs were allowed in the park which was nice for us and we didn't have any issues there. Just enough facts for adults and play for the kids.

We went to Dinosaur World with our 19 month and 4 year old. There was not a lot for our 1 year old to do and parts of the trail were too steep for her to walk without falling. Our 4 year old was pretty bored. She did the fossil dig and the stones and it wasn't really anything special.... More

Clearly if you have teenagers this isn't the place. Our son is 4 and is in heaven. HEAVEN! He can't get enough. I can't imagine coming here over and over, but he is loving the new park and seeing the different dinosaurs.

This was a very cute place. I took my 2 year old niece but she didn't really care for it at all. However, if I had had my 5 year old nephew he would have loved it. There is a "dinosaur walk" that is a paved trail in the woods with life size dinosaurs with plaques in front of them... More

I guess it's okay if you really like dinosaurs.. Myself I could care less we went with friends for a child's birthday. But my 3 year old did not like it so we had to leave within 30 minutes of paying all that money.
