We stopped at Dinosaur Land on our way out of Cave City. We have a two year old son and no other children. The pricing structure is kind of complicated. Adults are about $12, kids 2 and under get in free, children 3 and over were more expensive but they included gemstone mining and a fossil dig. It was fun... More

Awesome pet friendly place. I loved that we could take our dog with is instead of leaving him in the hotel. My 1 and 5 year old sons had a blast seeing all the dinos and digging in the sand for bones. Worth every cent we paid. Very friendly staff. Will definitely visit again.

I've taken my kids here twice at different ages. My two year old loved it but was litte scared, my 8 year old and 15 year old liked reading about all of the dinosaurs and seeing what they probably looked like. The playground is nice but it was too hot for the kids to play on. They enoyed the dinosaur... More

There are tons of exhibits that are full size. The kids loved it because how often do they get to see that many lifesize dinosaurs. For adults though it is only about making your kids happy. The dinos look as though they were made out of paper mache and there isn't much else to do there. I think it was... More

We stopped on our way back from vacation and were not disappointed!! 150 life size dinosaurs all scattered on a 1/2 mile wooded trail and a fossil dig! Keith was in charge of the Fossil Dig and he made it so fun for my kiddos, it is evident that he loves his job! Such a fabulous experience for my kiddos... More

My nine year old son aspires to be an archeologist when he grows up, so he was pumped for this, when he found The Boneyard, where they provide paint brushes and sifters to uncover a Stegosaurus, he was in heaven. There was a group of 18 of us, 8 adults and 10 kids. We all had a blast.

For younger children, this place is awesome. I'd say if your kid is under 10, they'd probably really enjoy this place. However, for anyone older than that, I'd say this place probably wouldn't be a good fit. My dino-loving 2-year-old loved it. My husband and I enjoyed his reactions, but agreed that we were very glad we had a buy... More

My kids, 6 and 3 yard old, had a great time there!!! It makes for a great day trip from Nashville, TN. There is no food there, so be sure to pack a picnick. The kids will love eating surrounded by dinosaurs. I guess it would be nice if they had a sound effect too, but then again, the kids... More

My husband and I took our 7 yr old grandson and he loved it. We spent about 3 1/2 hours there did everything! It is well worth it was not very expensive when you take into account what you are getting. Also you can come and go from open till close after paying. The kids will love it. I took... More

Dinosaur world was just about what you would think you were going to get to see..Dinosaurs. My three kids loved it and the fossil digging was a nice end to the day. Plan on spending no more than 2 hours though. You can see it all in about that time. Cost my family of four around $45. It was well... More
