I was traveling with my daughter and two young grandsons. My grandson loves dinosaurs so we decided to take a travel break and stop at Dinosaur World. If was 97 degrees and the dinosaurs were all outside. Luckily, it is very shaded and the dinosaurs are all in a beautiful woodsy area. I guess I was expecting some if them... More

An economic and sort of interesting way to run some energy out of young legs. A short (easy) trail with dinosaurs alongside and some playground / museum / fossil dig / gem mining to round it out.

We've visited Dinosaur World several times with our two boys (2 and 4). It is an awesome place for kids. The boys love the Boneyard and generally play for 30 minutes or more. We also let them do the fossil dig activity and they love it, too. We are looking forward to trying out the new gem mining activity the... More

We visited here with our five year old daughter. She isn't a huge dinosaur fan, but she really enjoyed this park. Compared to the dinosaurs at King's Island, which are animatronic, these aren't that impressive (to an adult), but they are brightly colored and the kid loved them! Nice walking trail with plenty of shade, and the cards telling about... More

We were there first thing as they opened & it was great to wander without being crowded. We could get as many pictures as we wanted. The trail is very clean & nicely shaded. The information provided was great. The fossil dig included with the kids price was a fun experience for my 4 year old. He loved talking to... More

Overpriced for concrete statues. Best feature is the dinosaur you see from the road. Save your money and do something else

We stopped here before heading home and my 6 yr old son LOVED it. Even the 9 year old daughter liked it. If you love Dinosaurs great place to stop and learn about them. Almost all of it is in the shade and easy walking. They kids also enjoyed the Fossil Dig and learning what kind of fossils they got.
