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.

We took the grandkids for a weekend vacation and visited Cave City. First we visited the Dinosaur World. We got there early and beat the crowds. The trail is 3/4 mile long and concrete side walks most of the way. As you walk the trail, you get to see first hand the various types of dinosaurs in "Life Like" size....it... More

I really was not sure about this place until I seen it. To be honest out of everything we did over four days this was my favorite! You will walk about 30 mins to see everything, and to be honest the dinosaurs are well maintained and colorful! I do think they need to repair the plaques that go with the... More

We took our 6 yr old grandson to Dinosaur World and it was well worth the trip. We were all excited to see each display of dinosaurs. We went through it twice! The playground was a nice touch also just to run off some energy. We enjoyed the "hands-on" display right outside the museum. The museum was very interesting and... More

We recently made the trip to Cave City, KY where we visited several places in town. Dinosaur World was our first stop. Our group for this trip consisted of 6 people - two children ages 6 & 16, four adults ages 30-65. This stop is geared towards younger children. Nice gift shop that was clean and had souvenirs in all... More
