I'm not sure why but I had low expectations the first time we came to Dino World, but it's a classy, science-based and just plain fun place. My kids are a little older now and still love it, but one of the things that makes it stand apart from competitors is how great it is even for preschoolers. Definitely something... More

My little girl loved it. They have a lot to see. The dinosaurs made life like. We walked the trails over 18 acres. They could give more information when you buy the extra package, for gem mining and fossil dig. I didn't know until we were at the end of the fossil dig that the children didn't get to keep... More

Aside from the slight judgment from the staff work bringing our own plastic dinosaur (Dennis), this place is a gem. They have a really informative video about the lifetime of a dinosaur. They have many life size dinosaurs and mammoths that despite signs saying otherwise, you should climb! Fun for everyone!

This family run attraction is well worth your while. The family has researched the dinosaur species and constructed life size replicas, each displayed with its facts. There is also a playground and a "fossil pit" for the kids to unearth their own fossils. Good time with good people.

My wife and I have driven past this place for over 20 years and we finally sopped in. It was a blast. It was $13.00 a piece and just had fun, getting pictures next to the life sized dinosaurs. Great museum and gift shop which we purchased a memory from

Having been to the rundown Dinosaur Land in Virginia, we were not too sure going into this place. Especially when we walked in and saw the prices. BUT, what a great place! It is well-kept, clean, and the staff is great. The dinosaurs are in great shape, and the place also has a small museum, cave theater, mining sleuth, playground,... More

If you like dinosaurs, it's worth the visit. They really are life-sized, and posed in great setups with multiple dinosaurs per exhibit. They are plaster and do not move, but if you are at all interested in dinosaurs or have kids that are, it's the place to go. A few extra things for the kids to do as well, at... More

We stopped at Dinosaur World during a day-long stay in Cave City, as part of a very long cross-country trip involving three children under the age of 10. This could have been a roadside vegetable stand and the kids would have been excited merely because they were out of the car. *LOL* I tell you this because it *may* have... More

Dinosaur World is not Disney World, but let's face it, nothing is. For an adult, it's totally lame. However you don't go to Dinosaur World for yourselves, you go for your kids, and my 6 year old loved it. The park is well maintained and the staff is ultra friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about dinosaurs. At the fossil dig kids... More

Not bad on the price. Walk around the outside trail and look at the fiberglass dinosaur. Plaques give you the info on them. Best part is the Fossil Dig and the gold mine thing. In the Fossil Dig the kids get a little class on paleontology while they dig for fossils and they get to keep what they find. My... More
